Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket
Drop in to 'that' route wearing this superbly durable, meticulously designed freeride Men's Ski Jacket, and you'll have the Jacket you need to make it happen. The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket, a 3-layer GORE-TEX Ski Jacket, ensures your comfort even in highly active use, while allowing you the freedom to select a conditions-dependent layering system beneath. The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket protects in storm conditions on the most demanding routes, and with its Swedish style has the ability to look smart and perform on-piste too.
Waterproof GORE-TEX Ski Jacket
The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Ski Jacket is made from 3-layer GORE-TEX, a fully waterproof, windproof and highly breathable, durable membrane. The pores in the membrane are far small than a water droplet, but bigger than a vapor molecule, thus the fabric is waterproof from the outside, while allowing the moisture vapor generated in active use, to escape from the inside to the outside of the fabric. The tiny holes created while stitching the jacket together are sealed over with GORE seam tape, producing a completely waterproof Ski Jacket.
Durable 3-Layer Construction
3-layer GORE-TEX construction bonds the tough, yet smooth and supple outer fabric, and wicking lining directly to the GORE-TEX membrane. Thus eliminating movement and wear between the component layers, and ensuring moisture vapor can pass quickly through all of the layers. This method of construction provides the best possible waterproof durability, and comfort given its increased breathability. These attributes are essential on a Ski Jacket that'll be used off-piste, where the physical environment, in the form of rocks and stones, creates more demand of the durability of a waterproof Ski Jacket, and where you're far more likely to need to vary your under layers as you expend greater exertion reaching remote corners of the mountain.
Peak Performance's superbly tailored cut and articulated sleeves ensures the Heli Gravity Jacket is easy to move freely in, allowing smooth movement in an arms-forward skiing stance.
Equipped for Comfort in any Terrain
The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket is equipped with the features you'll need to function easily in the backcountry, including Recco reflectors for avalanche safety. It's got a fixed, protective hood that accommodates your Ski Helmet with well-designed adjusters for an equally good fit whether wearing a Ski Helmet or not, and a wired hood brim for maximum face protection.
The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket is longer at the back than the front ensuring that your back stays covered when leaning forward. Deep zipped vents under the arms allow you to dump excess heat when needed, and the zips have webbing tabs for easy operation with gloves.
Further cold- and snow-proofing comes courtesy of a stretchy, form-fitting grippy snow skirt (that can attach to the Peak Performance Heli Ski Pants, creating a really sound snow proof system) and warmth-inducing Lycra inner cuffs. There's also an elastic drawcord at the bottom hem and Velcro cuff adjusters that can be used to perfect your fit and keep powder out.
Multi Pocket Design
The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket has zipped hand pockets, a sleeve lift pass pocket, and a vertical zip chest pocket with a soft Ski Goggle wipe. The inner zipped security pocket with earbud exit slot keeps your smartphone close to hand.
When pulling the Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket out to write this blurb, I was stuck immediately by its exceptionally high quality - smooth, densely-woven outer fabric, metallic front zipper pull, neat exposed waterproof zips - and its tonal colour blocking which adds great Alpine interest to its style. The Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket will protect you in gnarly mountain conditions, over any terrain you ski.
