Fight your way to the front of the line for the first shot of virgin snow in the La Sportiva Women's Storm Fighter GTX Jacket. Waterproof, windproof, and well under a pound at 11. 5 ounces, this jacket protects you from the worst of Mother Nature. Wear it alone when you only need saving from the downpour of the decade, or liberally layer underneath it if exposure to extreme elements is in your immediate future. On the outside, guaranteed waterproof and guaranteed breathable Gore Tex Active throws a backhand in the face of eye fluttering winds and hair raising hail. Its stretchy weatherproof protection is designed for movement, saving your skin from projectile snow while maneuvering through tight trees or pitching a tent. As its name implies, Gore Tex Active technology is designed for more aerobic pursuits, so you can count on it to move your skinning up sweat away from your body so you're not a soggy cold mess as you ski down. Three layer construction means it can take a beating wherever you battle the elements. The adjustable hood fits over your helmet so you don't have to choose between weather protection and melon protection. Adjustable hems and cuffs let you seal out nasty weather, and the roomy chest pocket easily holds a trail map, candy bars, and sunscreen for a full day of fun. Soft microfleece snuggles your chin when the collar is fully zipped, preventing cold zippers and the face fabric from rubbing against your face. When the sun turns icicles into puddles or you're dashing through the airport for a connecting flight, the Storm Fighter settles into a corner of your pack with barely a squeak.
