When a powder day rolls through all you need are your skis, headphones, and the Scott Vertic GTX 3L Jacket. Scott's most technical freeride jacket, the Vertic boasts a burly three-layer construction with a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproof protection and breathable comfort. Fully taped seams enhance waterproofing by preventing moisture from seeping through when you're plowing through the deeps. In case you get too warm in your pursuit of fresh flakes, Scott hooked the Vertic up with long zippers under each arm for sufficient ventilation. The powder skirt detaches so the jacket can connect to Scott's compatible pants, just in case there's too much powder for the skirt to handle. There are adjustments at the cuffs, hem, and helmet-compatible hood to seal out snow, and internal wrist gaiters with thumbholes enhance coverage and comfort.
