Volcom Fern Insulated GORE-TEX

With the reliability of GORE-TEX, Volcom Fern Insulated Pullover Jacket will keep you cozy during your subzero adventures. Backed by its Low Loft Polyfill Insulation, fully-taped seams, gaiters, Velcro cuffs, and hood, it seems impossible for the cold to penetrate. Its powder skirt has a zipper that allows you to connect it to your snow pants for better weather protection. The kangaroo pockets at the front also hide the hem drawcord toggles, so it’s not dangling your way.

We also like that the zipper pull of this ski jacket from Volcom works as an emergency whistle. And if you start overheating, you can allow some airflow by unzipping the side and pit zips.

On the other hand, some users might find the pullover design inconvenient. Volcom Ferm Insulated Jacket also lacks any media pocket. You can’t listen to your favorite tunes while cruising slopes.
