The new Skytour AscentShell Kit is for backcountry skiers and splitboarders who tour higher and further. Built with award-winning AscentShell™ technology for the most breathable waterproof comfort in a 3L stretch membrane, the Skytour is perfect for adventurers who need lightweight protection while they're moving fast uphill. Inspired by the best-selling Skyward Jacket and Pants, the new Skytour features a lighter weight, more streamlined, function-first design, with the same reliable weatherproofness and testing as trusted by Outdoor Research Ambassadors.
The Skytour Bibs feature a balance of backcountry features and technical details designed to make moving through rough conditions smoother and more navigable. Their left zippered pocket includes a secure avalanche beacon clip to keep you safe and connected in the backcountry. An athlete-favorited drop hatch allows you to answer nature's call without baring it all to foul weather. A gussetted crotch, articulated knees, and adjustable suspenders allow you to move and stretch naturally, while making layering a cinch.

Since 2016, Outdoor Research's proprietary AscentShell™ technology uses an electrospinning process to create a 3L construction that breathes faster, weighs less, stretches more, and far surpasses the comfort of traditional waterproof membranes. Never crunchy or noisy, AscentShell™ is just as comfortable as a soft shell, with the performance of a hard shell. Air permeable and breathable, AscentShell™ vents perspiration and excess heat during aerobic activity, while its light weight saves precious energy on demanding endeavors.
