When Mother Nature’s out for vengeance, the North Face Venture Jacket will keep you dry come rain or snow. The coat is made with a HyVent nylon fabric that utilizes a polyurethane coating, protecting you from all forms of moisture. Although the jacket is engineered to withstand intense rainstorms, it’s durable enough to double as a ski shell come those ideal Bridger pow days. Features such as the Velcro closure over the center front zip and the Velcro adjustable cuff tabs reject surrounding elements like a self-absorbed bitch at high-school prom. The jacket is also great for backpacking or general travel—it weighs a mere 12 ounces and is easy to compress and stuff into your already overflowing pack. Available at Northern Lights, Round House, Chalet Sports, Powder Horn, Big Sky Sports, and Gallatin Alpine Sports. $99; thenorthface.com.
