Backcountry ski tours and alpine climbing will never be the same. The Axiom Jacket from Outdoor Research has changed the game and upped the ante. Using GORE-TEX Active Shell, the Axiom maintains an extremely high level of breathability while giving you complete protection from the elements. Articulated elbows along with a slight stretch in the fabric allow for maximum mobility. A helmet compatible hood and harness or pack compatible pockets make this jacket an essential piece of backcountry gear.
This cutting-edge shell jacket, the recipient of numerous awards, symbolizes just how far Outdoor Research has come in recent years as they have transitioned from an accessory brand to a top-tier outerwear maker. Made of innovatively lightweight and extremely breathable GORE-TEX® Active technology -- which is half the mass of the standard GORE-TEX® membrane -- the Axiom Jacket provides the waterproof protection for which GORE-TEX® is famous, but transfers moisture more effectively. The increased breathability negates the need for pit zips, allowing you to further save weight in this streamlined, durable and functional shell. Grab the Axiom when you're planning a highly aerobic ascent in rugged conditions. Even if you start huffing and puffing on the fourth lap of your favorite backcountry stash, it'll still be breathing easy.
