Crafted from 20-time-award-winning AscentShell™ technology, this versatile waterproof jacket is top-rated for its breathability, durability and feature-filled design.

When you’re doing a backcountry ski tour or heading out on an all-day hike in the rainy season, you want to be prepared. We’re talking bringing the right equipment, plenty of snacks, and wait for it—this waterproof jacket. Performance-built and made-to-last, this men’s rain jacket is constructed with AscentShell™ technology.

Here’s why that’s important: AscentShell uses an electrospinning process to create a 3-layer waterproof membrane that breathes more, weighs less, and stretches farther than any competing materials (Maybe that’s why it’s won over 20 awards?). Fit into this next-level shell are even more features to keep you comfortable, like Dynamic Reach™ underarm panels for those attempts to remove your skins without taking off your skis and a stuff-sack left pocket so you can efficiently pack away this shell if you get too warm.

We could go on about the helmet-compatibility, fully taped seams, and how the fit allows for a full-range of motion while still being trim enough to avoid getting in your way, but we think you get the idea. So go on, toss this breathable rain jacket over your base layers or tee, then get out and conquer those snowy peaks, rainy trails, and windy shores like it’s your job.

Technical Help
How do I wash Waterproof Jacket's or Trouser's?

First, make sure you follow any washing instructions, that will be located within the garment. Avoid any Detergents or Fabric softeners, and washing machines are clean and free from any debris. [Put on a Rinse Cycle prior]


Outdoor Action Recommends using recommended cleaner such as Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash. Following the manufacturer’s instructions. After Cleaning the garment reproofing may be required.

How do I Re-Proof Waterproof Jacket's or Trouser's?

First, how to know when a waterproof garment needs re proofing. When new any waterproof Jacket or Trouser in the rain the water should bead up and roll of the jacket. This is the DWR coating on the outside performing as it should.


After time as the item is used more and more Rainwater will soak up into the jacket rather than repelling, although water will not penetrate through, the jacket will become heavier and allot less breathable.


To reproof the jacket first you will need to clean the jacket from any dirt or grime by using a recommended cleaner such as Nikwax Tech Wash [NO Detergents or Softeners]. Once the jacket is clean, the garment can be reproofed using Nikwax TX-Direct or similar recommended products.

What should i wear under a Waterproof Jacket?

What you wear under a waterproof jacket can be a very subjective question depending on what activity you are doing. A proper layering system can certainly help any waterproof jacket with its performance and breathability.


To start with a suitable base layer, Choose either a long or short sleeve wicking t-shirt such as polyester, wool or similar you will feel allot warmer and no clammy moisture against your skin. Please avoid any cotton fabrics as these can both hold moisture and take longer to dry.


A midlayer can be any of your choosing depending on how warm you wish to be. A pull over fleece or full zip fleece jacket will be ideal. If in colder weather a suitable synthetic or down insulated jacket with add further warmth however may be too warm if on a very active activity.
