For the fashion-conscious skier who doesn’t want to sacrifice function, the Armada Smoked Jacket is a perfect hybrid of utility and style. A Gore-Tex outer and light primaloft insulation keep you warm and dry without fuss through all sorts of weather, and the roomy hip pockets are perfect for stashing the essentials: beer, snacks, keys. It’s full of handy features, like the Recco avalanche rescue system, taped seams and waterproof zippers, and perfectly placed pockets for your headphones and pass. The long cut nods to tall-Tees and trendy, oversized outerwear, but the fit is narrow and feminine, and a bit of stretch ensures you can still do ski ballet and safety grabs all day long. On storm days, you’ll be grateful for the extra warmth and length on long chairlift rides, and the style helps it transition nicely for aprés adventures.
