For the up and the down.
Whether you're planning an Andean trek or a long ski season closer to home, if a lightweight, adaptable hardshell is what you're after, give the Houdini Ascent Jacket your consideration. This three-layer hardshell comes fully seam-sealed, with a slim design that saves weight and bulk whether you're on a long bootpack or enjoying a storm day at the resort. Houdini's Atmos membrane completely blocks wind and water without the use of harmful fluorocarbons, and the brand crafts its Bedrock Stretch fabric and accenting Motion Comfortshell panels using primarily recycled polyester fibers, so you can feel good about giving new life to old duds.
On deep days, take along the removable powder skirt to keep the powder on the hill instead of inside your jacket, and ditch it during dry spells to save weight, especially while you're touring. A wealth of pockets stash your essentials behind water-resistant zippers, while pre-bent hook-and-loop sleeve closures promise to keep your wrists dry while you're surfing through bottomless tree lines. Single-handed hem adjustments along the bottom hem and helmet-compatible hood make the jacket easy to adapt to quick changes in weather on stormy summits, and a high collar shields your face from icy gusts and face shots.
