Slithering through a sea of ordinary jackets, the Sidewinder SV writhes its way to the top, representing the pinnacle of design, materials, and craftsmanship. Much like it's reptilian counterpart, this jacket suffocates the competition by staying true to its roots as an exceptionally durable, lightweight and breathable piece for mountain exploits. The N80p-X face fabric withstands years of abuse, ski resort or otherwise, while the friendly expedition fit and articulated e3D patterning allow for layering and alpine acrobatics. Updated styling, WaterTight Vislon zippers, and an integrated stretch-panel powder skirt equipped with Slide 'n Loc attachment points are just some of the new features added to this legendary shell. The Asymmetrical zipper keeps your chin chafe free and at 20 ounces, you'll hardly feel this bombproof shell ripping turns down steep faces. If you call big mountains home, sport the Sidewinder SV and handle the harshest conditions mother nature can throw at you from the plush comfort of this technical shell.
