This three-in-one jacket from Australian snow brand XTM, features a high-tech shell and a merino insulated mid-layer. The shell has a waterproof rating of 20K and breathability of 15K, perfect for Australian conditions. The four-way stretch fabric is super comfortable to wear when riding, while the YKK waterproof zips and fully-taped seams mean there is no leakage if you have the misfortune to be skiing in the rain.
The removable mid-layer is warm thanks to the 80% merino fill and brushed merino body and sleeves. It also looks pretty cool, so can be worn apres! The three-in-one has you covered for those cold, windy August days, while the shell worn on its own is perfect for spring skiing. It was also designed with the backcountry in mind, the multi-layer options working well for when you have to work on the hike or cruise on the downhill run. At $599.99 the Granite jacket gives you plenty of bang for your buck.
