Review: Dakine Gearheart

Storm skiing requires durability, function, and comfort, and Dakine’s Gearheart delivers all three. Three-layer Gore-Tex and taped seams keep you dry; wrist gaiters and hand-warmer pockets keep you warm; and a powder skirt and adjustable hood make it perfect for a pow day. One note on fit: Dakine must use its long and lean surfers as models—I’m 5’8” and the men’s medium sagged to my knees. $520.
