There isn’t much worse than a day on hill with a not-so-warm or less-than-dry jacket. When you’re heading out to brave the conditions, you want outerwear that will stand up to Mother Nature, because having to call it quits early when the snow is waist deep is just not an option. For 2014, brands have pulled out all the stops with technical pieces that will also make the transition smoothly to aprés activities. This week and next, we will be displaying an array of quality outerwear choices, so check out these offerings from your favorite companies before you head to your local shop to purchase a new kit.

For more 2014 outerwear, pick up the October issue of SNOWBOARDER on newsstands or in digital format.
