I’ve been wearing this jacket all winter it and has kept me warm and dry in all conditions, including a few times filming the snow report in consistent rain. With a 20K waterproof rated membrane and breathability of 15K the Palladium II is the most technical and sustainable in XTM’s range.

Using XTM’s Reflex recycled fabric and a PFC free water-repellent coating the Palladium is fully seam-sealed lightweight shell, the tightly-bonded fabric protecting you from the wind while the breathability makes it perfect for spring touring.


When paired with XTM’s Australian merino backcountry mid-layer it is also perfect for riding in the storm, providing all the warmth you need for the coldest days. Again, tried and tested during the storms we’ve had this year when howling WNW winds took the wind-chill down to -20 and the snow was epic and and kept lapping for hours.

The Palladium has all the tech features you’d expect with fully taped seams, four-way stretch and waterproof zips while standard features include a powder skirt, two-way pit zips for venting, an internal goggle pocket, phone pocket and the jacket is 100% carbon neutral.

The 3-in-1 versatility allows you to wear this jacket as a mid-layer, a shell or combo. Head to XTM for more info and find your nearest XTM stockist here
