The Mens Outdoor Research Axcess Jacket is intended for extreme conditions and extreme skiers. Designed with 2-layer Gore-Tex, the Axcess Jacket provides breathable comfort along with waterproof and windproof protection. Outdoor Research incorporated great detail in the Axcess Jacket; a mesh powder skirt with gripper elastic, a zip-in balaclava with an internal tuck away pocket and an attached hood that fits over your helmet will all unite to protect you from the harshest winter weather. EnduraLoft Insulation was strategically placed in this sidecountry shell for superior warmth and the relaxed cut will fend off the wettest fresh-falling snow. With plenty of internal and external pockets to store the essentials like energy bars, a season pass and your MP3 player the Axcess Jacket has a place for everything. Chest to hip CrossFlo zippers will not only keep you cool while hiking but give easy access to the internal Shove-It pockets that are large enough to hold your goggles and ski hat. The versatile Mens Outdoor Research Axcess jacket will guarantee you spend more time carving turns in the backcountry and less time avoiding the Arctic winds and wet spring snow storms.
