Zip-Tech® Jacket to Pant InterfaceWhether waist deep in the backcountry or trying to one-up yourself in the park, nothing lowers motivation faster than snow jammed down your pants and up the back of your jacket. Volcom's originally designed and heavily imitated jacket-to-pant interface allows you to zip the powder skirt of virtually any Volcom Jacket to any Volcom pant, keeping snow out and heat in with no restriction of movement. Falling has never been more enjoyable.

Face Tech™"One less thing to remember," Face Tech™ is the first integrated face mask of its kind: detachable face mask that clips to the inside of Volcom hoods. The innovative design easily pulls over your head without having to unzip your jacket. The use of fleece and mesh offers protection and breathability superior to any balaclava or neck gaiter. The tension of Face Tech™ is adjustable via a pull cord found externally on the back of the hood.

Recco® Avalanche Recovery SystemRecco® is an avalanche rescue system utilized worldwide to locate avalanche burials. It is not a substitute for a transceiver or a properly trained and equipped riding partner.

Comments about Volcom Baldface Guide GORE-TEX® Jacket:

Great jacket for stormy conditions. Be aware it is a shell, so you have to layer for warmth also this jacket has no hand pockets because they figure your waist strap on your pack might make them useless. Some sites said the jacket had hand pockets and some said it didn't. I think they should have included them for when you don't have a pack on. Also I wish the helmet compatible hood was removable. Other than that I don't have any complaints. This jacket will keep the elements out and with the proper layering you will stay warm and dry through just about any condition.

Comments about Volcom Baldface Guide GORE-TEX® Jacket:

Great coat, Volcom seems to have steadily increased their sizing over the years so I went with a M instead of the L I had in the Doppler Pro Shell that was finally wearing out from 4 years of hard use. I am 5'-10" 170lbs and the M fits great, plenty of room to layer under but not super baggy.
