Gore-Tex Down Parka
Why We Like It
We're all about exploring the local mountain town after a day of skiing, and for that we need solid winter protection. We made sure that this casual parka combines the best of two worlds, with lightweight lofty down to ward off winter's chillier weather, and reliable waterproof protection in case it snows in the city. Soft baffling lines the interior, keeping valuable body warmth close at hand, and the Gore-Tex membrane pairs nicely with fully sealed seams to guarantee that we stay dry. We gave the jacket a relaxed fit for urban style, and it features a longer length that's much appreciated when spending an extended time on foot.
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.
Lightweight weather protection and breathability
2-layer laminates are ideal for times when you need durable waterproofing but might not require the lightweight construction and higher breathability of a three-layer shell—think all-time powder days at your favorite resort, not grueling backcountry ascents. This type of construction features a waterproof and breathable membrane bonded to a durable face fabric and a free-floating inner lining that protects the membrane from everyday wear and pulls moisture away from layers.
Lightweight and packable warmth
Down outperforms synthetic insulation in its packability and warmth-to-weight ratio, which is among the best in outdoor clothing, but it doesn’t stay warm when wet like synthetic does. Down insulates by creating pockets of air that trap body heat. The structure of feathers that creates those pockets also makes for extreme compressibility, which lets garments pack down to a much smaller size to free up room in your pack or luggage.
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.
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.
