"Bombproof" is an adjective that accurately describes the new Arc'teryx Keibo Jacket, created for big mountain, deep powder skiing. The three-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell blocks winter's harshest conditions yet allows internal vapor to escape. Coreloft Compact, a highly compressible and breathable synthetic insulation, provides warmth and ease of movement that many insulated jackets inhibit. Plush Coreline lines the collar around the neck for added warmth and a tall front collar blocks wind and driving snow; the helmet-compatible hood increases warmth and protection. Pit zips with meshing enable venting and block snow while the Snap ‘n Loc system secures the powder skirt. Keibo enables skiers to harvest fresh powder during the storm when most are inside drinking cocoa.
