When it's your turn to set the skintrack, zip up the Outdoor Research Men's Skyward Jacket, and set that skinner steep. This air-permeable shell is one of Outdoor Research's most breathable jackets, so don't expect to sweat too much when you're backcountry touring, and it's still reliably waterproof so you won't get wet when you're skiing through the fluffy stuff. The jacket's stretchy fabrication moves with you from the first awkward switchback to the final turn of the day. The Skyward also features long zippers that run from hem to bicep to allow plenty of ventilated airflow in case you start working up a sweat setting that steep skinner. The hood is helmet-compatible, because you shouldn't ski without a helmet, and there's a wire brim that stays out of sight when you're gripped in rocky couloirs. There are a plethora of pockets designed specifically for warming frozen skins, protecting smartphones, and storing other valuables.
