Put off-season training to use.
You've been roller skiing all summer, and at last the snow is finally here. Break out your kick wax and get to the classic track or the skate trails with the Louis Garneau Cove Hybrid Jacket. If it's been a while since you've bought a Nordic skiing jacket, prepare to be taken aback by the Cove's lightness. Not quite a softshell but not a midlayer either, the Cove features a plethora of Garneau's technical fabrics, which together create a flexible, breathable outer layer capable of adapting to a wide range of temperatures depending on how you layer.
Along the front of the jacket, strategically placed wind panels block harsh gusts, and Polartec Alpha synthetic insulation helps you stay warm on frigid mornings while remaining breathable. A Drytex mesh lining furthers the breathability cause, and the jacket's slim cut and articulated elbows allow for ample freedom of movement around your shoulders and back, where you need it most. Thoughtful touches, like pockets positioned higher to accommodate a waist belt or bag, make life a lot easier when you're working hard on-trail, and a single inner pocket provides just enough space to keep your phone safely tucked out of the cold.
