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 Jacket features an adjustable hood that fits most helmets - alpine, backcountry, ski, and ride. Its wire brim makes it easy to cinch down in place, and HoodLock™ holds onto excess fabric when your helmet is removed. Pit zips make it easy to ventilate excess heat when your pace turns up, and waterproof zippers with internal stash pockets keep valuables dry when the weather rolls in and powder turns call.

Intuitive stretch. Reliability in wet weather.
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.
