Patagonia has updated its PowSlayer Jacket (£600) this season with a more minimalist design and GORE-TEX PRO fabric featuring a fully recycled nylon face. This has made it more lightweight and packable. The fully featured shell delivers a high level of durable waterproof/breathable and windproof protection.
The Protest Remain comes in red checker lumberjack style. The jacket comes in a relaxed ergonomic preshaped fit and a longer length. The Remain is a member of the Geotech 10K series and withstands 10K mm of water pressure, safeguarding a waterproof finish. The removable hood boasts a thermoknit collar. The Remain features critically taped seams, and a regular waist gaiter, all ensuring your preparation for the slopes. The lift pass holder and headphone access increase ease.
A new type of glove landed on the Skier & Snowboarder magazine’s newsdesk recently. Now, we have not had a chance to test them in the snow, but if they do everything the Chinese manufacturers claim they could provide one of the cheapest alternatives around. They are currently selling in America at a starting price of $15 (about 12 quid)!
