We have designed and developed the Ridge Shell Jacket together with professional freeride skiers from around the world to ensure that it provides maximum protection and comfort during long days in the powder. It is built with a Helly Tech Professional 3L fully waterproof fabric with a new membrane which enables unparalleled breathability, keeping the wearer dry, warm, and protected. The jacket has a longer length and a relaxed, tailored fit as well as ventilation zippers which work flawlessly with a backpack – all to ensure maximum comfort in all conditions. Borrowing from our watersport heritage, we have added a hi-visibility brim of the hood and other details on the jacket to keep users safe and visible in high powder. Other comfort-enhancing free-ride specific details include a fusion modular system to connect the jacket to any ski pant, a snap-away stretch powder skirt, large, adjustable wrist cuffs that are easy to adjust even with gloves on, an extra-protective high-collar, an abundance of pockets for all personal belongings, a helmet-compatible hood, hand warming pockets, and wrist gaiters.
