Outdoor Research went for maximum versatility when they created the Women's Varia 3-in-1 Jacket. The hood, powder skirt, and even the insulated liner can be removed to take on a variety of conditions. A fully seam-taped, waterproof breathable Pertex Shield shell keeps everything inside this three-in-one jacket bone dry in burly weather. Add the EnduraLoft liner to the Varia Jacket to prevent the frigid temperatures from putting an end to your day in the mountains. These two Outdoor Research jackets also work separately to take on a variety of conditions both in the hills and around town.
