When Volcom offered to make us a custom jacket, we weren't about to pussyfoot around. So we had Volcom make the Men's Gennerman Jacket out of the best shit around: 3-Layer Gore-Tex Soft Shell. This jacket is guaranteed to keep you dry and breathes like you wouldn't believe. Fully taped seams, a jacket-to-pant zip interface, and a detachable powder skirt further kick up pow-protection. We had Volcom add a fleece lining for warmth, an internal pocket for your tunes, and a RECCO reflector for safety at equipped resorts.

Got this jacket on the cheap for 130. I've been in dumping rain conditions and stayed comfy and dry. This jacket is just a shell so don't forget to invest in a quality base layer! I must recommend smart wool for those who haven't tried it. But seriously this jacket is great and combine it with some zip tech Volcom pants and you'll have a great ride.
Volcom GoreTex Jack!
To be honest the Pattern and Colors arent my favorite. The Jacket itself is exactly what you would expect. GOOD SOLID JACKET. GORETEX! PIT Zips! brushed flannel lining. I haven't used the jacket in the mountains yet but will be within a few weeks. As for the fit, I got Medium and it feels PERFECT. Most Cats my size will find most Jackets are all too big for us, but this one is perfect. I LOVE THE GATORS! for the crazy low price of 69.99 its a STEAL! if your gonna pay 300-500 for it, then Id find something else that you might like a little more....

How did all these other people get this...
How did all these other people get this jacket for $70? I am looking at it and it's $329.
it was a sale they had going on, i guess it expired
Indeed, the $70 was below the 90 I got it for which I thought was steal at the time.
Short Sleeves Maybe, Steeze Mos Def
First off, im 5'10 & 140-50lbs. -Like most of "US" its hard to find a jacket that fits, Most Medium Jackets are huge and a small could be too small or perfect. Its tricky. This jacket does have somewhat short sleeves but makes it PERFECT! - I WISH MINE WOULD HAVE COME WITH A OZ OF BC NUGGETS!As for the jacket its what you will expect. Awsome quality. Cant wait to put it to the test. For 70 bucks its more then well worth it. Its a STEAL!
- about warmth. Its perfect too, its actually a little thicker then I thought. I guess from the Flannel! You just gotta Layer up like your suppose to and you will be fine! - One up for VOLCOM!
Short sleeves but still steeze
This jacket is amazing. I used it for 2 days at Silverstar. Once in pow and once on a bluebird. In the snow it keeps you warm and in the sun it breathes like a champ. The jacket to pant interface is nice too, especially in the deep pow. My only complaint is that I'm 6'1" and the sleeves are just a little too short, every time I go to put my binding on after the chairlift my glove popped out and I had to re adjust. Any time I extended my arms while riding the same thing would happen and snow would get in there. If it had some wrist gaiters I would have kept it but my loss is my slightly shorter armed friends gain.
Great jacket for the price ($69.99!!!) and if it's Gore-Tex you know it's going to be good.
Styling is a little out there for me (usually rocking the black on black) but I couldn't pass it up. Should make for a great shell on the wetter days (integrated hood and skirt - yes, that's right, no skirt removal).
finally got to shred with this on, kept me nice and dry and even zipped into my burton pants, major plus on volcoms part for making it compatible. when i got hot i just unzipped the pits and i could feel the heat dumping out of em. i ordered a size small, 5' 9'' 140 pounds, fits perfectly!
this jacket is so sick i ordered it and got it 2 days after i didnt even order 2 day shipping dogfunk is bomb but this is the most best jacket u can buy for the price $69.99 who can beat that haha i recomend it to everyone
I just purchased this jacket for my grandson...
I just purchased this jacket for my grandson we live in Ohio, it is very cold in the winter ,when I received this jacket I noticed that it was very thin, not being a snowboarder I am concerned that it will not be warm enough, does this jacket have to be layered for warmth
its a shell so he will have to wear stuff underneath it but as far as staying warm, he shouldnt have a problem because not a drop of water gets through the jacket, i have one similar to this and i never have a problem staying warm and i am amazed by the fact taht i can get covered in snow or rain and i am always dry. Moisture is your worst enemy on the mountain because that is how you get cold
also after switching to a jacket like this i only have to wear one mid layer on the mountain now. 69 dollars is a great deal on this jacket
Hi Sue, your grandson should be really happy with this jacket. You're correct, this jacket is a shell and lacks insulation but it is completely waterproof and wind proof. That being said, if he wears a base layer and a sweatshirt or fleece underneath, he should stay warm in the coldest weather.
Does this jacket have a zip in compatibility...
Does this jacket have a zip in compatibility with burton snowboarding pants?
Not sure about that one - definitely has it for the Volcom pants though. I was wondering as it states both (with and without zip in compatibility) so I am super stoked on this jacket!
can you just wear this jacket over the top...
can you just wear this jacket over the top of a t-shirt or jumper? Is it warm enough? I don't really understand what is meant by shell
Gore Tex soft shell is a deceptive name, its no wamrer than a hardshell and in theory actually isnt as warm because its way more breathable....the fabric itself is no thicker than normal harshell, actually a bit thinner, and has a little stretch, and has a softer hand feel inside and out that doesnt get all clammy when you sweat...basicaly is it thin, flexible hardshell material
Dogfunk and it's sister websites continue to impress. This Jacket is as stylish as it is functional. Well designed pockets, zippered pit vents and a hood that is comfortable with or without a helmet. The Powder Skirt, although not fully removable, can be snapped to the lining when not in use and even has silicone beading so it will not ride up. I am 6'1" 175 and a Medium is perfect for me.
We ordered this jacket first of all because it looked different and second of all, because not everyone will have it! The jacket looks great on! It is just a shell, which we knew, but some people might not. Great jacket if you want something that no one else has!
