The Coat Check 2019—The Holden Corkshell Summit Jacket

p: Mike Yoshida

SNOWBOARDER Magazine traveled all the way to Baldface Lodge high above Nelson, BC to experience some all-time cat boarding while getting a first look at how 8 new high-end men's jackets perform when navigating storm conditions, descending waist deep pow and keeping us composed despite our succumbing to the froth effect. Up to bat, the Holden Corkshell Summit Jacket.

The brand that built their reputation by bringing fashion forward street inspired silhouettes to the slopes, Holden, is now injecting that same avant-garde approach into their technical alpine pieces. The Summit's Corkshell™ fabric yields soft tactile comfort without compromising protection while the strategic placement of Bemis taping at key stress points bolsters the bomber durability of this coat. And of course this is a Holden piece so you know the aesthetics will keep the wearer looking sharp from the pillow lines to the après antics.
