We're not the type to shy away from storm days, not even when the flakes are melting on contact—that's because we've got the Cottonwoods Jacket, our secret weapon. This bombproof hardshell features a highly durable Gore-Tex construction that can handle our most adventurous runs, all while keeping our woolly long johns warm and dry. It's not as lightweight or stretchy as our Rustler Jacket, but we're pretty grateful for its protection when plowing through snowy mountains in the Pacific North West, or hunting for fresh powder off-piste. Articulated sleeve patterning still allows us the freedom we need for pole-planting and binding adjustments, and we tossed in a handful of thoughtful features to keep us comfortable and dry.
