The backcountry is where you’ll usually find Jake Blauvelt, and it’s a place that can go from serene to sloppy with icy wetness that turns riders into freezer treats.

Three—layer construction with— ® gives him the breathable waterproofing he needs. Underarm venting lets him purge heat when he’s slogging against gravity to reach a launch point, and the also has wrist gaiters, a removable storm skirt, a magnetic hold—down for the hood, and pockets for his goggle and tune machine. When Jake returns from riding in no man’s land, the zones of color set him apart from the mongrel horde.
