Platinum Picks – Best of ’23: Roxy Chloe Kim Overhead Jacket

A gold-medal Platinum Pick.


I’m not sure exactly what Pantone color this is, but this jacket is a striking shade of red. No surprise there, as it’s a piece inspired by Chloe Kim, who has long expounded on her off-hill interest in fashion, in addition to being, at only 22 years old, one of the best contest snowboarders of all time with a list of accomplishments that speaks for itself. For 2023, Roxy has collaborated
with the star halfpipe rider on her own signature collection, which pairs glowing pastel purples and pinks with bright whites and an oil-on-water-swirl of a print—plus the cool-toned red. As part of the Chloe Collection, the Overhead Jacket is the Mammoth Mountain local’s take on a pullover, though the fashion-forward detailing is a far cry from the retro standard. The front of the jacket is sleek, with an off-center collar zipper, full-width chest flap that hides a zippered stash pocket big enough for a phone, and a streamlined kangaroo pocket. 15k DryFlight waterproofing and 80% recycled Primaloft insulation provide protection from weathery conditions, while the roomy, oversized fit is made to move in and perfect for layering.

One particularly novel feature is the hood tie down, a small Velcro closure that, when used, keeps the hood from flying in your face when going upside down on transition walls—or wherever you find yourself riding. Overall, the Overhead is a well-designed combination of unexpected details and winter high function. This is a statement-making jacket that will keep you warm and dry all season long, which is why the gold medal Overhead is a 2023 Platinum Pick. – Mary T. Walsh
