Combining a top-notch waterproof exterior and warm insulation, the Mountain Hardwear VanskierTM insulated jacket keeps you dry and warm without feeling clammy while you're on the slopes.


Your early-edition minivan broke down somewhere just outside of Tahoe, but you're still going to ski your way across the country. Transportation is touchy, but the Mountain Hardwear Women's Vanskier Insulated Jacket keeps you warm and dry whether you're hitching along I-80 or shredding some run at Schweitzer (yup, that's Idaho). The combination of weatherproof Dry. Q Elite technology and polyester Thermal. Q Elite insulation results in a waterproof, windproof jacket that breathes better than your yogi. Dry. Q Elite might be a play on IQ, but it is smart technology. Unlike other breathable tech, Dry. Q starts breathing before you've starting sweating, so you're not playing catch-up with cool when the heat gets overwhelming. Rain, wind, sleet, snow' Not a problem for this waterproof and windproof shell. Strategically-placed Thermal. Q synthetic insulation offers warmth without weight and a functionally slim profile. Inspired by the insulation dominator, down, Thermal. Q combines rigid stems and soft fibers to trap air and create a thermal barrier between your warm body and the frigid outside. Inside, the powder skirt keeps snow from flying up your back, and can be zipped off when you're walking around town. Underarm zips let you quickly dump excess heat, and the three-way adjustable hood fits snugly over your helmet for an aerodynamic silhouette when you're getting big air off a jump in the park. Soft internal cuffs keep your wrists warm and thumbloops help you keep the sleeves down, even when you're wearing mitts. The micro-chamois lined collar cradles your neck in softness and protects your chin from abrasive cold nylon. Pack-compatible hand pockets means you can get your lipbalm or extra chocolate bar without taking off the waist belt of your touring pack.


Two elite technologies maximize warmth, waterproofing and mobility.With its down-inspired matrix of rigid stems and soft fibers, Thermal.QTM Elite is, ounce for ounce, the warmest synthetic insulation ever made. We've combined that with Dry.QTM Elite's unrivaled waterproof breathability for maximum interior warmth without feeling clammy.
