Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Jacket
Why We Like It
We don't mind when the snow gods are dumping in full force—in fact, we welcome it. We created the Cottonwoods Jacket so that we could continue to play in such weather, snug as a bug. Even though the Cottonwoods Jacket is not as lightweight or stretchy as our more versatile Rustler Jacket, if we're plowing through mountains in the Pacific North West it's the piece we want. Articulated sleeve patterning still allows us the freedom we need for pole-planting and binding adjustments, while a plethora of features keeps us comfortable and dry in even the deepest of snow.
Benchmark for waterproof, breathable performance
Gore-Tex is a synthetic laminate that features thousands of tiny holes small enough to prevent water droplets from penetrating but large enough to allow water vapor to escape. This combination prevents snow and rain from reaching layers while still allowing hot air and water vapor to escape, managing moisture from external and internal sources.
Low-weight breathability for chasing goals
3-layer construction is more breathable, more packable, more durable, and lighter than its 2-layer counterpart, so it thrives during strenuous efforts in the worst weather. This construction features a technical laminate attached directly to a face fabric and a backer. Though it’s called 3-layer, the design works more like a single layer that seals out the weather while releasing excess heat and moisture. In this process, the face and backer provide protection while the laminate does the heavy lifting of sealing out water and releasing moisture.
Keeps even the sneakiest moisture at bay
Even the highest-rated membranes won’t do a whole lot of good if the seams between aren’t defended. We fully seal every seam on our technical outerwear, so melting snow doesn’t find its way into baselayers.
Modern style with room for layers
Our regular fit is built with inbounds resort riding in mind. The cut accommodates multiple insulated layers for the coldest days on hill, while still tapering in just the right places to provide a clean look that’s at home across the world.
Coverage from deep snow
Powder skirts are built into the inside of the jacket at the waist to prevent snow from blowing up into your layers while you slash and turn in powder. They feature a closure at the front and elastic around the bottom to create a seal that can keep snow out, or be undone for more comfort during days spent on-piste.
Designed to thrive in lift-accessed terrain
Built with daily use in mind, our resort-oriented outerwear features a durable and waterproof construction that keeps you covered through changing weather and holds up to daily wear and tear.
