Better get up and hit the resort in the DC Women's Prima 14 Jacket before all that fresh pow gets stomped. Its 15K-rated shell and fully taped seams ensure you stay dry whether it's still nuking or not, and the jacket remains surprisingly breathable despite its waterproof protection. The brushed mesh lining enhances this jacket's breathability and adds a bit of warmth, but it's the Thinsulate insulation that really keeps you warm throughout winter. DC placed 80g Thinsulate in the body and 40g in the sleeves so you get warmth where you want it and mobility where you need it.
The Prima's Standard fit is comfortable and functional without going too baggy—it provides room for layering in frigid temps and uses articulated elbows to prevent any restrictions. The mesh-lined underarm zippers open up wide to ventilate a lot of excess heat when you lap the terrain park. The powder skirt keeps snow off your backside when you biff it, but you can remove it when you're dashing downtown to meet friends in a snowstorm. The adjustable hood has a hidden head gaiter that you can pull up when your numb nose can't take it anymore, and the Respirator Breathing System lets you breathe through the gaiter. Inner hand gaiters add a bit of warmth to your palms and block any cold drafts trying to creep into the sleeves.
