Let’s be real, no one ever loses that child-like zeal and enthusiasm for a fresh coating of snow, especially when it includes totals in the double digits. So when Ullr provides your hometown haunt with enough fluffy stuff to make a grown woman weep out of sheer excitement, make sure you’re well prepared with the Black Diamond Women’s Zone Shell Insulated Jacket. The Zone is Black Diamond’s warmest ski jacket and is specifically crafted for brisk days in the backcountry or frosty laps at the resort. Outfitted with the premium, synthetic PrimaLoft Silver insulation, this jacket has an athletic fit, designed specifically for technical layering while the rugged Gore-Tex exterior provides both reliable breathability and paramount, waterproof protection–ultimately ensuring maximum comfort, whatever the weather. However should you begin to feel a little toasty, the extended two-way zippered armpit vents enable speedy body temperature regulation. In addition to its formidable reinforcements, the Zone is outfitted with a large, helmet-compatible hood that contains integrated Cohesive cord-management hardware and easily adjusts with a single-pull. The independent, micro-suede lined collar provides cushy softness against your chin, in turn discouraging that rather unpleasant chafed-red-beard-esque appearance.
