You think you really know the secret powder bowls and trees runs to your mountain until you get to ride with one of the resort guides. Their robust mountain beards can sniff out the best lines and the secrets that we all dream of. This year Volcom brings out another GPT (Guide Proven Technology) Jacket that is looking to push the boundaries of warmth, durability and functionality as we know it. Constructed with a highly waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® 3-Layer Laminate fabric, this jacket can withstand the brutal wind blown slopes and the rainy spring clouds. We all know that being prepared is something that all guides are known for, so Volcom added a Recco® Avalanche Recovery System piece to the Volcom Baldface Guide GORE-TEX® Jacket. This jacket isn't just for the burly mountain men out there, but also for the mountain-lover who is looking to further push the limits of backcountry snowboarding and touring.
GORE-TEX® 3 Layer Laminate Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® product technology are durably waterproof and windproof and have optimized breathability that maximizes the wearer's protection and comfort. Gore invests heavily in field testing to understand end user needs, which allows Gore to provide the GORE-TEX® GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™.

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.
