Who do you think really knows the mountains the best? Your parents? Your best friend? The bearded eye patch man who has been sitting in the lodge for the last twenty years? All good contestants, but there is only one group of people who truly know the mountain, the guides! Volcom

's Zip-Tech® and the Recco® Avalanche Recovery System you will feel more secure than ever against snow, whether you have a fear of it sliding down your pants or cascading down on you from a mountain top. Dress like the guides and don't let the elements keep you from the mountain!

Zip-Tech® Jacket to Pant Interface - Whether 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 System - Recco® 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.
