Go north, young man.
Orage's Alaskan Men's Jacket is made to keep you from freezing while you brave frigid mornings in the lift line, waiting for the ropes to drop so you can put tracks in that fresh pow that fell overnight. Primaloft Sport insulation traps hard-won heat close to your body, while the Prime 20 waterproof and breathable membrane, ECO DWR coating, and fully taped seams keep wind-blown snow and persistent sleet from penetrating to your baselayers and turning a great day miserable.
The Alaskan has a lot more going on than just insulation and waterproofing, though. To make it fully capable on storm days and sunny days alike, Orage hooked it up with a removable helmet-compatible hood, and laced the underarms up with zippered vents to help you stay cool when the bootpack heats up. A stretch powder skirt keeps the pow out of your longjohns, and the assortment of pockets keeps your hands, phone, goggles, and pass safe, so your shred doesn't get cut short by lost gear and equipment malfunctions.

This coat fits so well. It has a super soft, plush material inside (primaloft) but it doesn't get stuffy. Looks super clean too! As for waterproofing- haven't skied waist deep pow yet but it handles great in everything else. I got 1 in fire red and one in turkish blue. Love the blue color- looks just like the pic. However, the picture of the red one led me astray. I thought it would be more coral/orange, but it's a vivid red so be warned! Love this coat. THE BEST PART- theres this awesome option on the neck collar to button it halfway open (there are little cutout holes to breathe) I rock this all the time!! Keeps the coat up, neck warm, but still maintains breathability. Why doesn't every coat have this?!
