    Rustler Gore-Tex Stretch Jacket

    Why We Like It

    When we created the Rustler Gore-Tex Stretch Jacket, we decided to reach for nothing short of a pinnacle piece for all-weather protection. Lightweight and high-performing, with articulated sleeve patterning and a stretchy construction, every slash of powder is effortless, the pole-planting feels second nature, and we have plenty of mobility for ripping skins and adjusting bindings. And because some days are backcountry days, we graced the Rustler with a chest pocket large enough for a radio, and a unique design that includes a secondary zip at the neck for hood expansion and additional venting. We even threw in this killer detail—an insulated pocket to protect the battery life in our phone, because nothing makes a ski day better like easy listening on the way down.

    Product Features


    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.

    Additional Details

    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.

    Backcountry rustler coat

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Many features to this coat. Took me a day or two to figure them all out. Love the coat. .Seems bulletproof on the coldest northeast days. Very durable.

    sHell yeah!!!

    Seriously impressed with this jackets versatility and functionality. I don't use anything else now between resort skiing and touring. I've owned technical shells from many of the brands that dominate the segment and can undoubtedly say this on par with quality. However, this shell has a much lower price tag and with more features! Love the fit of the jacket as well, which is a bit longer, but perfect for layering on any day and in all conditions.

    sHell yeah!!!

    This Jacket Rips!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    One of the better skiing jackets ive ever had. The dual zipper design offers something unique to other competitors and is one of my favorite features. Great warmth, breath ability, and water resistance all in one. If you're on the fence for a new jacket look no further. This one has it all.

    Great Fit, Feel, and Function!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Really digging the asymmetrical zipper with this jacket! It breathes well, prevents google fog, and feels good on my face. The material of the jacket makes for a super comfortable feel throughout and the lightest of weights. Would recommend wearing a mid layer on those colder days. Good amount of pockets for all of your essentials needed for a day of riding. Definitely happy with my purchase of this jacket!

    For the one who wants it ALL

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    This jacket is packed full of features. SO.... MANY... FEATURES!
    This jacket was made with the resort in mind. Gearheads really got together to figure out what we wanted in a jacket and what features would be best for the resort. We decided we wanted it ALL.

    This new jacket has a well-placed end to the jacket at around 34 inches long and the arms just past the back of my hands. The size is meant to be able to wear a nice mid-layer for those really cold days, but also has a stretchy material that allows you to move when shredding. The asymmetrical zipper was well thought out to allow for a good venting system. the open vent allows for breath and vapor to flow through and away from the jacket preventing goggle fog!

    Let's talk fancy features- There are stashable thumb loops, a fleece-lined phone pocket, and button closures that connect to the cottonwood bibs so your jacket stays down on the blower days (and you get a little sendy).

    Overall- this jacket is an awesome jacket for the person who wants all the best features, but still wants to look good. The function is perfect for everyday use and those that are looking for that 100 day ski year objective.

    So Damn Comfy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    It only took one day of skiing for me to fall in love with this jacket. No matter the conditions I was comfortable and ready to shreddy. The asym zippers and venting keeps a super soft fleece on my face (no more plucked beard hairs) and my goggles fog-free. The flannel backing gives just an extra touch of warmth and the stretch Gore fabric keeps me dry and comfortable. I absolutely love the freeride fit as it allows me to easily layer underneath without hindering my mobility or steez. It's definitely a big jacket but not XXL-Tall Tee status; I'd size down if you prefer a trimmer/athletic fit. The most underrated feature is probably one of my favorites; the over-glove thumb loops are friggin' rad. Pop them on over your gloved thumbs, clink your poles, and you're ready to send it.

    Great Blend of Form and Function

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    This jacket has become my daily driver as it excels in all conditions. It provides all the moisture protection and durability I need with the fully sealed seams and 3 layer GORE for those long days resort days sitting on a chairlift exposed to the elements. The flexibility and stretch of the jacket also make it ideal for when I'm hiking or splitboarding around the Backcountry looking for those last stashes of good snow. I often leave the jacket on when going up-hill because the flexibility and breathability are so good. Another big win is the asym zipper, keeps my facial hair from getting caught and it frees up space for a secondary zip for additional neck and face venting. Overall great jacket, I've been really impressed.

    The jacket fits true to size, I would say most people my size would prefer the medium. I like a baggier fit so I bumped up to a large.

    Great Blend of Form and Function
