Name Droppin’—Volcom’s Guch Gore Jacket with Bryan Iguchi

“Volcom really has dialed in their technical outerwear game over the years and it’s been a dream to develop the Researched & Tested signature line with them. I live and breathe Wyoming winters, spending long days accessing backcountry riding and I depend on my outerwear to provide shelter from the harsh, constantly changing weather conditions. My jacket is made of C-KNIT, a 3-layer GORE-TEX® stretch fabric that is lightweight, waterproof and breathable. It was designed for those long days and big efforts on the skin track/bootpack and has a looser fit to allowing unlimited layering options, covering a dynamic range of temperatures and conditions without restricting movement. It has mesh lined vents to allow you to dump heat while breaking trail in deep snow, keeping the powder out and the air flowing.”–Bryan Iguchi
MSRP: $600

Volcom Says:

The Guch Stretch GORE-TEX Jacket will take you to the backcountry with grace. Used and approved by our favorite guide Bryan Iguchi in his natural habitat in the Jackson Hole backcountry, this jacket gets his nod of approval for snowboarding adventures in the alpine. GORE-TEX 3-Layer Stretch C-KNITTM helps keep you dry and was designed from the ground up for breathability, mobility, and ventilation. A Drop Tail Fit and every crucial tech featured under the sun, this jacket lends a new definition to purpose-built. This jacket helps keep you covered head-to-tail so you can focus on any punches the backcountry throws at you.
