Primed for the slopes, this ski and snowboard jacket provides a top quality Gore-Tex waterproof shell for a layering system, allowing for plenty of room to wear as many or as few layers as you need. A great option in changeable weather.
Aptly named the Speed Light because it is one of the lightest Gore-Tex jackets out there, and is designed to be a quick solution that’s to hand when the weather takes a turn for the worse. It packs down extremely small and weighs only 350g, so you can store it in an accessible pocket when out and about. Perfect for those concerned about packing light.
This mid-weight jacket is designed with activity in mind. The fabric incorporates a stretch for freedom of movement whilst adding reinforcement in the form of waterprooof NeoShell in the shoulders, hips and cuffs. Ideal for cold and variable conditions.
Insulated yet highly breathable, this jacket combines NeoShell and Polartec waterproof fabrics for the ultimate protection. When you’re working hard this is sure to provide some relief from body heat, whilst maintaining a complete barrier from the elements. Optimal comfort and protection for those long days on the mountain.
This Gore-Tex jacket is designed for the toughest skiing and mountaineering conditions. Fully featured with extra pockets, pit-zips, snow skirt and adjustable hood, it still weighs in at less than 650g, keeping you moving fast throughout. The Changabang retains room for your choice of layering system, but provides a good amount of warmth in itself. Primed for serious expedition use and Alpine trips.
