Mentor Jacket

Outdoor Research has made some great improvements in its Mentor jacket this year. Built with Gore-Tex Pro Shell and fully taped zippers, moisture stays out but the jacket still breathes well. The double-sliding TorsoFlo hem-to-bicep zippers are a nice upgrade. For many years I've had to take my coat off to stay cool while skinning, but the full-length pit zips in this jacket keep me cool and dry. Available at Barrel, Northern Lights, Schnee’s, Round House, Timber Trails, Gallatin Alpine Sports, and Grizzly Outfitters. $400,
