“Outerwear" is considered to be what you wear on top of all those other layers. Southeast Alaska's temperate rainforest climate demands the toughest outwear available. As a skier, climber, or backpacker, you also need outerwear that breathes well, dries quickly, and enables you to move freely. We have the best options for lightweight, waterproof, breathable jackets ideally suited for any season in Southeast Alaska. For those cold and dry days we have down and synthetic insulated jackets to snuggle up in and windproof jackets and softshells for those windy summer days.
The Arc'teryx Beta LT Jacket gives you the lightweight construction you want without sacrificing any of the weather protection you need for life in the mountains. The LT takes the bombproof AR and makes it lighter. A Gore-Tex Pro three-layer, fully seam taped shell holds off the worst storm you'll encounter and breathes incredibly well. The fit is trim, but with e3D Ergonomic 3-Dimensional patterning, including articulated elbows and gusseted underarms, it enhances your mobility and comfort in tight spots. LT Jacket still only weighs 10.1 ounces, which is less than in years past.
The North Face ThermoBall Jacket puts revolutionary new ThermoBall(TM) synthetic insulation to work. Warm and light, it mimics down, yet still insulates even when wet. Functioning like down feathers, the tiny round clusters of ThermoBall spun polyester trap warm air, while softly conforming to your body's shape. ThermoBall retains 80% of its insulating power even when dampened by rain, humidity or sweat, so you'll continue to stay warm. A perfect insulated piece for Southeast Alaska!
The versatile Arc'teryx Beta AR Pant is for outdoor purists who want one waterproof pant to do everything from alpine climbing to backcountry skiing and hiking. Full-length side zips let you put on these pants over crampons and heavy boots, and integrated gaiters keep out rain, wind, and snow. Three-layer waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro fabric gives maximum weather protection in big mountain storms and serious breathability when it's your turn to break trail.
Stylish denim lines with the versatility of a 3-in-1 system, The North Face's Kalispell Insulated Triclimate Jacket sports a Heatseeker insulated body with a HyVent shell and a removable heavy fleece liner to keep you cozy while you play outside. Waterproof and seam sealed, you stay dry while it's dumping. On chilly mornings, zip in the fleece liner to get additional warmth. Wear together or separately for maximum comfort.
The Mountain Hardwear M’s Homeride Trifecta Jacket is multitalented. With four distinct ways to wear it, this jacket adapts to almost any situation on or off the hill. The outer shell is a waterproof, breathable Dry.Q technology hard shell with a subtle textured pattern. The lightweight, insulated zip-in liner reverses for a classic, casual hoody look. Wear together or separately. Attached, adjustable, helmet compatible hood, adjustable stretch powder skirt, and plenty of interior pockets for all your gear.
