If you're the kind of backcountry skier who doesn't let stormy conditions stop you from going out and lapping your favorite zones, you have two choices for outerwear. You could dress yourself up in color-matched waterproof clothing from head to toe, and spend the first half of your day gradually soaking through your mid-layers one by one (and the second half of your day shivering). Or, you could put on the Crazy Idea Flame Jacket. Built for high-output touring in moderately snowy conditions, this new piece features weather-resistant Air-Tastic (yes, really) fabric on the front panels and sleeves for protection from the elements, as well as softer, lighter, and stretchier fleece under the arms and in the back panels to allow heat and moisture to exit the jacket efficiently. The Flame Jacket is insulated with Polartec Alpha, a very light and comfortable synthetic insulator that is rapidly gaining popularity in mountain clothing for its exceptional breathability. Finally, for comfort and flexibility in the lower back, Crazy uses their 3D honeycomb fleece material to hug the waist and allow moisture under your pack to escape. If you like moderate weather protection in a stylish package, the Flame Jacket is worthy of a look,

  • Jacket features a hood with a stiffened brim to protect you from wind and snow.
  • Hand pockets to warm up your cold fingers, as well as a zippered chest pocket and internal storage pocket.
  • DWR coating helps keep you dry from the outside, while breathable fabrics wick away moisture from the inside.
  • Excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and stretchy, comfortable fabrics make for an outer layer that you won't want to take off.
  • Reflective logos and color-contrasted seams will make you the envy of the skin track.
  • Polartec Alpha provides effective insulation without becoming overly sweaty.
