Bred for the backcountry.
From winter backcountry skiing tours to summer alpine ascents, stay protected from harsh mountain weather with the Jack Wolfskin Men's Gravity Air Texapore Jacket. It has a lightweight fabric that's designed to offer maximum breathability during high-intensity activities while still shielding you from the elements.
Waterproof and windproof Texapore Air+ fabric allows moisture to pass freely to the outside of the jacket so you don't get soaked with sweat during a grueling stretch of climbing. The Superlight Quick Moisture Control (QMC) mesh lining draws moisture away from you skin, dries quickly, and enhances breathability. An athletic cut helps you move freely and maximizes efficiency, and the ergonomic hood is adjustable and can even fit under a helmet.
When temps warm up at lower elevations, you can stash the Gravity Air into its own pocket for easy storage in your pack. It also has two raised hand pockets that can be easily accessed even when you're wearing a hip belt or harness. When you really want to move in the mountains, be sure to bring the Gravity Air along for the journey.

Jack Wolfskin Gravity Air Texapore Jacke
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
Purchased size small in Jan 2017. Began wearing it immediately over my mid layer jacket in a snowstorm while plowing snow. I am 5' 8", 140 lbs. "Jack" fit over the midlayer without compressing it - slipped on without bunching on midlayer. True to advertisement as waterproof breathable. Length in back covers just close to the bottom of my tush. Assembly of coat is very good. Cut of hood is not overly large as to obstuct all of peripheral vison. Found zipper pull tab very small on right chest pocket. Difficult to find the tab while wearing goggles and gloves. Replaced tab the next day with an MSR "after market" pull tab 3 times original size. Jacket internal left gear pocket is too small to fit goggles in - cell phone/ wallet size. Would prefer sleeve cuffs to be elasticized or tether pull vs. velcro. During use in an extended rainstorm observed minor "pooling" of water around velcro area that would get absorbed by my gloves during the times that my arms were lower than my waist (was using poles during my snowshoeing activity). Did not remove this jacket before getting into my sleeping bag. During the time it took me to remove my shoes at the edge of my tent til I was in the bag, the jacket was totally dry

nice looking rain coat
was a bit confused on this one- bought it thinking it would be a good shell for skiing. Not really- looks like a very good coat- but its basically a rain coat- very thin shell material- good looking though. just not warm enough for skiing. I think I was misled by the price- list of nearly $300? And sale for nearly $200? Should be a more heavy duty coat for that price-- the same thing from north face is only $100.
