When the weather guessers are calling for more than a foot of fresh snow overnight and a few more inches throughout the day, you'd better fake a hernia quick, because tomorrow is going be sick. It's in times like these that you're going to want the Basin and Range Men's Empire 3L Shell Jacket to keep you dry while you make the most of your ,sick day.This burly three layer shell is built to put the stop on nuking snow, howling lift chair winds, and of course, bottomless face shots. Fully taped seams prevent any moisture from seeping through, while a DWR finish makes moisture bead along the face fabric. When you're booting it to the goods, two underarm ventilation zips let you dump heat quick, so you don't sweat out your underlying layers. And when it's time to buckle your boots down and send it, an integrated powder skirt and helmet compatible hood let you keep everything cinched down and snow tight.
