Tired of uber-trendy outerwear that becomes yesterday's news before the day is over? The Armada Women's Run Insulated Jacket stays stylish without fawning over fads and serves as shield against cold, wet, and wind. It's too bad the Rune has no defenses against immature bosses and unrelenting in-laws, but at least you can escape the day-to-day with some high-altitude, snowboard-based fun.
When you close the slightly off-center front zip, you've just created an MLT sandwich. MegaRex 2L is two layers of durable fabric. Smack dab between the fabric layers lies a waterproof and breathable laminate so neither snowstorm nor sweat slows you down. The taffeta lining slips over layers thick and thin and gives you easy moving freedom. That's a tasty bit of weatherproof protection without the grease stains. Lightweight polyester insulation makes it easy to wear the Rune on just about any type of day, with the real exception being a spring day when a bikini is the perfect baselayer.
The stretchy, stashable powder skirt keeps snow from sneaking in on days when face shots abound. Racing up a hill to be first in line when patrol opens the gates? Open the underarm vents when you get there for a quick cool down, and close them up again so you don't freeze before they flip the sign. Chafing is an irritating experience, and the microfleece-lined chin guard keeps your face feeling and looking good. If you have a pair of Armada pants, attach the Rune for a united defense against the weather.
