Peak Performance Heli Alpine Jacket - Women's
Here's what other sites are saying:
Whether you're waving ciao to the chopper or grinning at your touring partners while a mountainside of untouched powder awaits you, the Peak Performance Women's Heli Alpine Jacket and its Gore-Tex Pro guarantees you'll be riding high and dry all season long. Cut longer in back to protect what matters, the Heli Alpine supplies stellar comfort and weather protection so you can focus on finding the sweetest line, every time. Gore-Tex Pro uses three layers to create a waterproof, breathable micro-climate for your hard-riding body. Snow and rain stay out, massive amounts of sweat get moved out, and the shell stands up to backcountry abuse season after season. The regular cut leaves room for layers if temperatures threaten to boycott anything above zero. A full-height collar zips to your chin when winds scream "get off the exposed ridgeline" and articulated sleeves make pole planting dreamy. Copious underarm vents open wide when you need a big hit of fresh air. The powder skirt does double duty: it has your back when the white wave crests at your chest, and it provides the snap attach system for Peak Performance ski pants. The helmet-compatible hood means your snazzy melon protector stays dry when the snow and sleet come crashing down. Lined with silicone dots, the hood stands a better chance of staying on top of your head if the precipitation is preceded by frontal winds. Weather-resistant zippers prevent wetness from creeping in. Pockets inside and out give you more storage than your van, and one of the inside chest pockets comes ready with a goggle wipe. Whether you're guiding or following into untracked terrain, this durable, weatherproof jacket guarantees you'll enjoy winter play for seasons to come.
