Why We Built The Hayden Gore-Tex Infinium Jacket

We keep the Hayden Jacket in our gear closet in order to skip the resorts and stick to the peace and quiet—and fresh lines—of the backcountry. Gore-Tex's new Infinium fabric delivers stellar performance and comfort when we're on steep skin tracks or taking tricky traverses in search of fresh snow, and while it won't keep us dry if we're attempting a skinner in the midst of a PNW snowstorm, it will defend against flurries, the shedding of spruce, and any wind that tries to test our defenses. We built the Hayden to keep us light on our skis and dry from the inside out, no matter how many seconds, thirds, or fourths of that white room we decide to take advantage of.

LOVE this jacket... Often times I need to size up in order to allow for layers, and then the jacket isn't as flattering... This jacket fits perfect, looks flattering with our without layering. Only thing that could make it slightly better would be a two way CF zipper... Zipper pockets are sporty and functional! Color is nice too... Usually I go for black, but this is a soft neutral "red" (if that's possible).

I've been skiing and enjoying the mountains with this jacket every day for 4 weeks - downhill in resort, a little backcountry, nordic, hiking, you name it. It's great. I love the way the fabric is a bit stretchy and moves with me. I love the full length pit zips feature and the big front pockets that are easily accessible even with my backpack on and while sitting on a lift. On a cold day, I wear my puffy jacket under it, and it's perfect. Held up well in full snow and blustery wind yet lightweight enough for a sunny, blue sky day too. Was surprised the sleeve ripped so easily with a close encounter with a tree, but perhaps that was just my bad luck. Was fairly easy to patch.

I’ve been looking for a nice shell for backcountry and resort skiing for a while and I think I’ve found it. I am 17 weeks pregnant and don’t have a belly yet, but I know as the season goes on I will need some extra space to grow. the extra zipper feature for extending the jacket space will be perfect for growing bellies!! It’s high quality and covers your butt, which I like. Beautiful color and simple yet well designed. Haven’t taken it out in snowing conditions but it’s been a great top layer so far.

I love the colors and the fabric feels nice, although more like a spring weight. I wonder if it would be warm enough for winter weather. The simplicity of this jacket is key but it really needs a couple more pockets. The double zip option for venting it a nice touch.

Love this jacket! Goretex INfinium, so nice, super breasthable and waterproof. Softshell material is so comfy. True to size to slightly larger. I have the XS, Brick Red is a nice red color, not a shiny red :) . Sizing for me is always tough, so this is pretty close, I can layer under or not, room to do so, but not too much, just slightly longer on me than I'd prefer, but I'm 5'1" , so typically this happens. Love my new touring kit, this jacket and the hayden pants also, love.

Great jacket for most days... Went to France in the Spring and it rained for some of our trip.... I was soaked!!! Great resort jacket or jacket for skinning but I would not recommend if you are going to face questionable weather. I had brand new Flylow pants and I was soaked top to bottom... My friend that had the same pants but a Flylow jacket was completely dry on the same ski tour... Will keep this for touring on bluebird days... Love the zipper feature for airflow.

I wanted a jacket that would function in downhill skiing as well as in cold weather hiking. Wore this jacket for a 4 day trip downhill skiing and it was perfect! Weather ranged 10-35 degrees F and the layering was just great with a base-layer and fleece under it. It kept me nice and dry with the falling powder and the vents were nice when it warmed up and the sun peaked out. I have also worn it hiking in some light rain and it has kept me very dry! I love the stretch and breathability of the fabric! The front pockets/vents are perfect for storing any items throughout the day, but there are no pockets that you can stuff your hands in on walks (not a deal-breaker, but something to know!) I am 5'9" 150lbs and an athletic body type with long arms. The medium (my regular size) fits perfect with room to layer underneath. I put a thick base layer and a fleece under the jacket and added a thin vest on colder days. There was probably still room for a thin puffy, but I was warm without one!

I've worn the Hayden jacket on several tours this winter and in the early spring season and I have become a huge fan. Through the warm spring slush, bulletproof wind crusted chutes, cool glades, chilly sunsets and warm full moon tours this jacket has handle it all with ease. The Gore-Tex tech keeps me warm when it gets cold and it keeps me cool when it gets warm. I have yet to take it out in a blizzard, but it has kept me dry and protected from the wind. Functionally, I like the how simple the design is. I like the skin pockets for quick transitions - I generally prefer to keep skins in my bag once I'm heading down for the day, but this is a super nice feature to have when you're skiing downhill for a short section and need to throw your skins on again right after. The Gore-Tex fabrics are also stretchy and soft which feels great to wear and is easy to move around in. The membrane has dope tech which has tiny little holes that allows the small vapors from sweat to ventilate while keeping out the larger moisture beads. This comes in handy when it starts to snow or when spring slush splashes back up at you. The classic pit zips with the two zippers works great for unzipping at both ends without feeling like you're completely exposed. I also love the laser cut front zip ventilation. It was beautifully executed and subtly vents without needing to look like a Jerry with the sides flapping in the wind. And then we have style, because let's be real, we want to look good when we shred. The color options are awesome. They're colorful, but not crazy, and the slim cut looks athletic and functions great as it fits nicely under your touring pack. My only suggestion for this jacket would be adding a couple more pockets. I realize that the design is made for minimal backcountry touring, but it does function well in bounds and I think having a couple of small pockets for items like your lift pass, money, and chap stick would be awesome. I personally really like jackets that have the small pocket on the sleeve near the wrist cuff! Something similar would keep the design minimal but allow easy access for those smaller items you'll want throughout your tour or during a day at the resort!

No lift pass pocket on the sleeve?? :(

Great ski jacket for touring but also for everyday downhill skiing. The fit is true to size. Can wear with multiple layers underneath, such as base-layer and warmer insulator. The material has stretch, so perfect for mobility and performance activities. Pockets, in front are great to store skins or just keep open for ventilation with mesh pocket bags. Also love the color Brick Red that I got! Could not be happier!

I love the "no-frills" style of this jacket. With just a few essential pockets (I prefer chest pockets as they don't get in the way of backpack waist straps), this jacket has everything you need and nothing you don't. Plus, I adore the "Trellis" color!

Love your look! Could I ask what pants you styled it with? Thanks!

This jacket kept me warm and didn't get wet as much as my old one when snowboarding. Comfortable as well. Are vents are nice. Not a fan of no pockets but the vents you could probably use as pockets.

Hey there, just got this jacket in the mail! The stretch is as good as the hype says, however I'm having trouble locating the "2 internal pockets" - any guidance? Obviously the two zippered chest pockets are easy to find, am I just missing the point that the "2 internal pockets" are only accessible via the chest zips?

Will Backcountry be updating this jacket - to include a ski-pass pocket and issuing it in new colors - for the upcoming season?

Hey Michelle! We wont be updating this jacket this year. We have decided to take some direction from our customers and Gearheads to make some changes here. Stay tuned for winter 21!

Does it have hand pockets? The specs say yes, but one review and the pics seem to indicate no.

Hi Jessica, These do not have hand pockets but rather two extra large chest pockets. We'll get the content updated.
