There was once a day when skiers wore heavy cotton and didn't know what the word "waterproof" meant. What fools! Take advantage of modern genius and zip up the DC Men's Ambush Jacket, a standard fit riding jacket that repels moisture and cold without slowing your day on the mountain. Unlike heavy cotton, this polyester herringbone face fabric brags up a waterproof breathable membrane, able to keep out melting snow while not producing an uncomfortably stuffy environment. A touch of synthetic insulation pairs well with other layers to promote a warm and happy torso. If you don't need that insulation, then just unzip the underarm sections and let the free breeze tickle you through mesh vents. Another product of this wonderful era is the Lycra wrist gaiter and powder skirt, stretchy enough to maintain both free movement and the perfect fit and strong enough to block the entrance of snow during wipe-outs or intense storms. Store your pass, your phone, your music, and some snacks for a long day in Ambush's assortment of well-placed pockets.
