Marmot made the Men's Freerider Jacket with a waterproof-and-breathable Gore-Tex two-layer membrane for charging into endless storm cycles that drop wet, heavy snow on your local resort or feet of cold smoke on your best-beloved backcountry lines. Fully taped seams prevent moisture from sneaking through microscopic gaps in the nylon fabric, and a powder skirt makes sure blower doesn't fly up into your baselayers when the pow is piling up and the wind is howling. Marmot also lined the collar with soft brushed tricot, engineered the hood to interface seamlessly with helmets, and included a unique zippered neck gusset to increase comfort and ventilation when you're hiking or riding with the hood up.
Speaking of ventilation, the Freedrider also features underarm vents with water-resistant zips, so you can let heat escape without allowing storm snow to blow in while you're booting up a couloir and putting in storm-riding hours, respectively. Marmot's famous Angel-Wing Movement allows you to raise your arms without exposing your waist to the elements, and a series of pack-compatible chest, sleeve, hem, and internal pockets let you access your gear even when you're loaded up for backcountry missions. As a resort-friendly touch, Marmot even included a Recco reflector, which can make for easier rescues in in-bounds accidents.
