* Winter jackets that can double as a light shell for all season riding
* From popular snowboard and ski brands like Volcom and Burton
* 4 jackets boasting fresh colorways to technical functionalities
As the Snowpocalypse continues its wrath across the U.S. (even hitting the coastal city of Malibu last week) we are prepping for the powder with the proper gear made for all conditions.
When shopping for winter wear, especially if you snowboard or ski, it is necessary to think about technical features that should include waterproof shells, a good length for deep snow days, and versatility during the season’s shifting weather patterns.
These picks from high-end brands like Volcom and Burton are designed to be worn on frigid days and on sun-filled spring skiing days as well. With both bold and neutral colors and 2-in-1 jacket features, there is something for every rider who is embracing the Snowpocalypse with full stoke.
1.Volcom Analyzer 2 Layer Shell Jacket
This clean-lined color-blocking Volcom men’s jacket brings navy green, tan and pops of orange into a design that can go from the slopes to the city seamlessly. Made from a water-proof shell exterior with taped seams for a super dry experience, the jacket can be layered with thermal undergarments for warmth and worn with a tee on sun-soaked days on the hill.
2. Burton Men’s Covert Shell Jacket
Burton’s Covert shell jacket features a technical design of embossed taffeta to regulate body temperature and even adapts to your body’s changing temperature as you ride harder and faster. We love the effortlessly cool gray exterior that is made with large pockets for your phone or goggles as well as a mesh interior dump pocket for extra stashing. The jacket is compatible with Burton pants so you can zip the waistline onto bottoms for a waterproof suit on powder days.
3.Gnarly Danorak 2 Anorak Jacket
This radical jacket from the riders over at Gnarly have showcased their appreciation for bold color with this anorak jacket in black and olive green with their name branded on the front. This jacket is suitable for all season as it can be layered with hoodies and undergarments for warmth when you need it and worn casually as the season shifts to spring. A drawstring hood and front pocket add convenience to the design.
4. Mecastar Mens Snowboard Ski Jacket 3-in-1
A go-to jacket for riders who want versatility on the slopes. Mecastar shows off its well-designed 10-pocket winter jacket that features both a waterproof outer layer and a separate warm fleece liner underneath when you work up a sweat and need to shed a layer. The detacheable hood and zippered vents under the arms make this an ideal choice for winter enthusiasts who don’t limit themselves to just the slopes. Take it out for a day of snowshoeing, backcountry shredding, hiking or just to clean off your car in this wicked weather.
