Generally, jackets are built to do just about one thing: keep you warm. But the needs of skiers and snowboarders go far beyond just retaining heat. Backcountry built its Rustler Gore-Tex Stretch Jacket with these demands in mind, giving the wearer a multitude of functions for the constantly varying conditions they’ll find on the slopes. The jacket is built with a Gore-Tex three-layer system designed to keep the wearer dry no matter what, and the added stretch construction allows for full mobility. What separates the Rustler from other ski jackets, however, is the unique set of ventilation zippers found at the neck and underarms to keep things breathable while remaining waterproof. Combined with a number of other thoughtful features, this jacket goes above and beyond to meet the needs skiers didn’t even know they had and is available for 20 percent off at checkout with the code GEARPATROL20.
