The Albert Jacket Features
Some skiers we know who set the steepest skintracks in Tahoe told us they were tired of super light puffy coats that they’d toss on at the top of a climb only to realize the coat gets soaked with water and rips easily. Not cool. Lux 2-layer, 40-Denier fabric is Intuitive’s most durable 2-layer material, an ultra-tough blend of polyester and spandex. It has stretch, resilience, and a 20k/30k membrane that is, yes, absolutely waterproof.
High Performance DWR
We dare you to go stand in a shower or the next rainstorm with your favorite Flylow jacket on. See how the water molecules roll off the shell fabric? That’s due to our high-performance Durable Water Repellent, a polymer coating added to fabric that makes it hydrophobic, meaning moisture beads up and rolls off, like marbles on glass.
Primaloft Eco Insulation
The performance experts at PrimaLoft, Inc., have combined 80% recycled materials with advanced fiber technology to create a high performing eco-friendly insulation for immediate warmth without the bulk.
Conditions dependent, you split your time pretty evenly between the ski resort and the backcountry, which means you need gear that's tough and waterproof enough for the pounding of tram laps and storm skiing inbounds but won't sweat out on a climb on those days you decide to earn your turns. Here, we opt for fabrics and features that do double duty, like jacket powder skirts you can zip out or bib pants made for versatile pursuits.
