There’s a blizzard happening? Who knew. You certainly won’t have any idea inside this jacket. The insulated body and sleeves keep you all warm inside while the taffeta lining makes it easy to slide the jacket on and off. The extended length and two-way adjustable hood with liner cover more of your body. The jacket also features 100% polyester with an EXOTEX™ 15K waterproof rating and critically taped seams to keep you from getting soaked. On top of that, you can use the shoelace drawcord to pull the jacket closer and accentuate your figure. Let the snow fly–the fixed waist gaiter and Lycra cuff gaiters keep the snow from flying up into your business. With all that warmth and coverage, you need mesh armpit vents so you don’t overheat. There’s no shortage of storage either with the internal mesh pocket, internal media pocket with audio port, zippered handwarmer pockets, zippered sleeve pocket or zippered Napoleon pocket. Colorblock panels on the enzyme-washed jacket make the jacket as street-worthy as it is mountain-worthy. Finished with a jacket-to-pant attachment to complete your whole look.

This insulated jacket knows how to make you feel like you’re indoors even when you’re out in a snowstorm thanks to the 100g polyfill in the body and 80g polyfill insulation in the sleeves.

And the Sherpa-lined collar takes the place of a scarf so you can reduce all the extra layers.

For an extra design touch, the upper chest panels feature sonic welded quilting.

Dropped hem and curved cuffs know their way around the feminine figure. Pockets galore include tricot-lined handwarmer pockets, a goggle pocket and a noise pocket. If you have Volcom pants, the Zip Tech® jacket-to-pant attachment gives you one streamlined look.
