Developed with adrenaline junkies like TNF™ big-mountain snowboarder Lucas Debari and skier Ian McIntosh for slaying maximum vertical miles in the backcountry, our most technically advanced jacket now features an updated design and fabric for 2014. Nearly indestructible 70D Gore-Tex® Pro 3L offers premier waterproofing and windproofing with exceptional breathability for best-in-class protection in remote mountain zones. Purpose-built pockets include an exterior chest pocket that secures a radio transceiver and an interior water-resistant pocket that protects your cell phone from moisture while extending the battery life. The stretch powder skirt features clip-in integration to seal out wind, the cold, and moisture, whether you are skiing in whiteout conditions or wipe out. If an avalanche is triggered, the nearly weightless embedded RECCO® transponder in this jacket can be pinpointed by the detectors carried by the rescue team.
GORE-TEX® delivers the industry’s most innovative and highest performance waterproof, windproof and breathable weather protection.
GORE-TEX® Pro: Provides maximum ruggedness that’s ideal for extreme and extended use, and provides up to 28% increased breathability combined with durability and windproof properties.
GORE-TEX® Active Shell: Provides extreme breathability along with durable waterproof and windproof protection for all-weather, high-aerobic activities. It combines a lighter, thinner GORE-TEX® membrane, with fine denier performance textiles to deliver a streamlined three-layer construction. New for Spring ‘12, this brings a never-before-seen level of comfort performance to waterproof apparel.
GORE-TEX® Paclite®: Combining extreme breathability and durable wind and waterproof protection with minimum weight and pack volume, GORE-TEX® Paclite® shells use a specific membrane with a protective internal layer made of an oil-hating/carbon hybrid – eliminating the need for a separate lining, making this lighter, smaller, and easier to pack away.
GORE-TEX® Performance Shell: Specifically engineered to form an impenetrable barrier against wind and water while maintaining breathability, this waterproof material uses a two-layer construction for a lighter, softer feel – and in a three-layer construction for a more heavy-duty alternative.
