  • Tough 2-layer GORE-TEX technology offers premium waterproof/breathable protection
  • A durable water repellent (DWR) treatment helps moisture bead up on the surface
  • Water-resistant recycled polyester lining glides smoothly over layers; shell style is designed with room for an insulated jacket underneath
  • Helmet-friendly hood is big enough to pull over a helmet but not too big to wear over a beanie; hood can be adjusted in the front and back to dial in the fit
  • High collar lets you tuck your chin when the snow is blowing and is lined in fuzzy tricot to eliminate chin chafe
  • Pit zips let you quickly release heat
  • Shaped cuffs with wide hook-and-loop adjustments help seal out the elements, can fit over gloves and are easy to grab—even with mittens
  • Powder skirt snaps away when not needed; drawcord at hem helps seal out the elements
  • Media port and plenty of pockets, including a lift pass pocket on wearer's left wrist, a key clip in the left hand pocket and drop-in goggle pocket inside the wearer's right
  • Hand pockets are lined with fuzzy tricot for a little coziness when you need it
  • Dropped back hem for added coverage
  • 2-way polyurethane-coated, water-repellent zipper closure

Sizing Notes

Measurements are stated in inches unless otherwise indicated.

SHORT: Some pants are available in short sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 2.5 inches shorter than regular sizes.

TALL: Some pants, shirts, jackets and parkas are available in tall sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 3 inches longer and a rise that is 1 inch longer, a shirt or jacket body that is 2 inches longer, a parka body that is 2.5 inches longer and sleeves that are 2.5 inches longer than regular sizes.

Capri or cropped pants have an intentionally shorter inseam—reference the technical specs instead of this chart.
