High waterproof and breathability ratings combined with taped seams ensure reliable protection against wind and moisture. At the same time, moisture is removed from the skin and ventilation can be improved even further by opening the underarm zips. The drawstrings on the hood make it adjustable to provide extra protection from the cold, and the inner cuffs have thumbholes for added practicality. The snow gaiter prevents snow from entering through the hem which is equipped with press studs. The studs are meant to enable the attachment of compatible ski trousers to the jacket for keeping the back warm at all times. This item is full of highly functional features.
