Weather can be a daunting adversary on the mountain. So when the elements go nuclear, make sure you're armed to the teeth with Outdoor Research's Furio Jacket. In the wake of Mt. Rainier's relentless and ever shifting storms, this coat protects and deflects the brunt of Mother Nature's harsh whacks and whumphs without prohibiting you from doing a victory boogie at the summit. Falling in the footsteps of the earlier Furio prototype, this year's edition is designed to be softer, quieter, and more streamlined than seasons prior. Designed as a hybrid mapped pattern, this piece is outfitted with Gore Tex Paclite product technology throughout the body and is reinforced with Gore Tex C Knit textile on areas of high wear and tear. When you need to batten down the hatches, the Halo Hood fits snugly over a helmet while the TorsoFlo bicep to hem side zip ventilation presents easy to access aeration when you inner layers start to resemble something of a Roman steambath.
