What You Need In A Jacket

A good jacket keeps you warm and dry, fits just right, breathes well, and has the features you need. What you need in a jacket depends entirely on use. Powder skiing on a storm day demands more weather protection. Spring hiking calls for versatility and comfort. Although the choices might appear daunting at first, once you get your hands on the right jacket, you'll love it for years.

Activity
Different jackets are built for the rigors of different activities. Although a rain shell would keep you dry while you ski, a technical shell is more durable and designed for heavy, wet snow. Reach for a jacket designed for the activity you prefer and you’ll be much happier at the end of the day. Shop Hiking & Backpacking Jackets Shop Ski & Snowboard Jackets Shop Alpine Climbing Jackets Shop Cycling Jackets
Waterproof Rating
Some activities only call for a jacket that's water-resistant, but if you plan to get outside in nasty, wet weather you want something with highly waterproof fabric (20K+), a breathable membrane, and taped seams. Shop Men's Waterproof Jackets

Insulation
A fully insulated down or synthetic jacket offers all the warmth you need so you can just pull it on over a thin baselayer and go. An uninsulated shell jacket is more versatile because it allows you to pick and choose the type and weight of your insulation you decide to wear beneath. Shop Men's Insulated Jackets

How to Buy an Alpine Touring Ski

Skin to the Summit & Shred the Stash

You’ve decided to leave the crowds at the resort and hit the skin track. An alpine touring ski balances easy handling, floatation, and weight to give you the most versatile platform for earning your turns on the way up and shredding trees, powder, and chutes all the way down. An AT ski is a powerful addition to your quiver and due to its ability to handle a variety of conditions and terrain, it might serve as both your resort and backcountry ski.

Weight:

When you’re earning your turns, every ounce counts. An AT ski is usually heavier than a rando or Nordic ski and significantly lighter than a powder or big-mountain freeride ski. Wood or composite materials help shave weight where it counts

Camber & Shape:

Like an all-mountain ski, you can expect a blend of camber underfoot and tip-and-tail rocker or early rise to add a touch of surfy maneuverability for tight terrain.

Other Features:

Tip and tail grommets for skin attachments, a snow-shedding topsheet treatment, or an ultralight core—it’s all about a balance of uphill speed and downhill performance.
