Have you ever thought about what the ultimate ski jacket would be? Sure, everyone will have their own criteria and unique needs. Possible preferences can include a jacket that feels light, maybe it is insulated or not, some prefer a hood and others prefect a hat only… no hood thank you. Well, knowing the ultimate jacket that will work for everyone and designed for everyone’s favorite winter activity is a tall order we do feel that the Modon from ArcTeryx is definitely in the running. This jacket recently won Outside Magazine’s 2013 Jacket of the Year Award.
Collaborating with Gore, ArcTeryx, developed the new N80p-X face fabric becoming the company’s most abrasion resistant to date. The Compact Cereloft 80 insulation is deceptively light and slight in profile giving you a very streamlined and tailored looking jacket. The Cereloft insulation will keep you warm even on our most frigid February mornings. The slim profile and lightweight feeling the insulated Modon gives you won’t restrict your range of motion and it retains a nice flexible feel. We feel this makes this jacket super versatile – something you can wear in the backcountry or in-bounds ripping up the ski area (or both on the same day). You will be able to focus on the task at hand whatever the weather is throwing at you.
