It would be hard to feel uncomfortable in the Ortovox Men's Guardian Shell 3L Ski Jacket, even if you're skinning the steeps. This jacket's Toray Dermizax EV membrane boasts some of the highest breathability ratings around, as well as highly rated waterproof protection for powder days. Ortovox lined the Guardian Shell in moisture managing, naturally odor resistant, and superlight merino wool for comfort. Merino wool offers thermal regulation that cools you down when you're warm and warms you up when you're cold. Ortovox also equipped the Guardian Shell with zippers under each arm for ventilated airflow. The powder skirt removes when you want to connect this Guardian to Ortovox's Guardian pants, and there are adjustments at the cuffs, hem, and helmet compatible hood to better seal out the snowy cold. The Guardian has a massive pocket configuration from backpack and harness compatible front pockets to ski pass and media pockets.
