You’ve sacrificed sleep, work and a relationship or two for cold, dry powder. You may sometimes feel a twinge of regret, but you’ll rarely feel the cold in our Primo Down the warmest and most protective insulated hard-shell jacket we make (and updated this season with a newly refined fit). It combines a durable, 2-layer waterproof/breathable and windproof GORE-TEX fabric with an insulating layer of Traceable Down (from geese traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure the birds that supply it are not force-fed or live-plucked, as certified by NSF, an independent third party) to keep your psych high as the temperature drops low. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish casts off water and saturated snow, and an internal nylon lining manages moisture and glides smoothly over underlayers. The 2-way-adjustable, helmet-compatible hood has a laminated visor for optimal visibility. The Cohaesive cord-lock system embeds cord locks in hood and hem for quick and easy adjustment while Slim Zip installation with watertight, coated zippers on the pockets and pit zips reduce bulk and weight. Vislon zippers on the center-front and chest pockets are burly tough and easy to use. Other features include ventilating pit zips; a removable, fully-adjustable, low-profile powder skirt; a goose-down filled draft collar for additional warmth and protection; and an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector. There are six zippered pockets: two handwarmers, one chest (includes a secure media pocket with cable routing), one on the forearm, and one interior stash, plus one interior drop-in for gloves or goggles.
