Part of Dynafit’s freeride line, the 3-layer, waterproof Yotei Jacket features Gore’s new C-KNIT Backer technology, which promises a softer touch alongside greater breathability and lighter weight.

Designed for free-touring, backcountry skiing in big mountain terrain, the Yotei features large ventilation zippers for venting on sweaty uphills, roomy chest pockets to store climbing skins, a zip-off mesh powder skirt, taped seams, and ergonomic wrist warming cuffs.

The Yotei Jacket (named after a Japanese peak) can be snapped to its companion Yotei Pant with the Micro Snap System. It has a Ret breathability rating of less than 4.5 and a hydrostatic head rating of 28,000 mm.

Best for: Free-touring in the backcountry on big mountains
