Oakley Great Ascent Snowboard Jacket
COLOR & SIZE:
If you want to stay dry on the mountain, wear the Oakley Great Ascent jacket, designed especially for backcountry skier Jake Blauvelt. While you may not be stomping tricks from heli drops like Blauvelt, you can rest easy knowing that you are getting pro protection from the elements on your own mountain adventures.
The Great Ascent is made with GORE-TEX laminate with an impressive 27K waterproof rating and a 20K breathability rating, along with fully taped seams so nothing gets in. If the weather gets nasty, just hunker down with the storm skirt to protect your torso from deep wet snow and the fixed hood with adjusters, along with wrist gaiters, cuff adjustments and a drawstring hem. If it is more of a bluebird day, let down the hood and unleash your underarm vents to release pent up heat. The Great Ascent has it all, including pockets for your goggles and your tunes, and a special avalanche reflector if you run into trouble.
It is hard not to take a shine to Jake Blauvelt and his gutsy skiing ability - or the performance ski clothes from Oakley that he helped design.
