The Mountain Force Men's Balance Shell Jacket treads the line between backcountry skiing and freeriding. Its CM ceramic membrane boasts high breathability for backcountry bounding, and it's also highly waterproof for the resort's snowiest days. Fully taped seams enhance waterproofing by preventing a single snowflake from seeping through. Mountain Force equipped the Balance with zippers under each arm for ventilated airflow, and the stretchy powder skirt removes for on piste sessions. There are adjustments at the hood, hem, and cuffs to seal out snow, and the jacket to pant interface connects the Balance to Mountain Force's compatible ski pants for complete coverage.
