Summary Hoback Jacket
We designed the Hoback™ to offer solid winter protection that doesn’t break the bank. Lightweight lofty synthetic insulation to ward off winter’s chillier negative degree weather, and reliable best in industry 45K waterproof protection for whatever old man winter throws at you. Soft baffling lines the interior and the Sympatex membrane pairs nicely with fully sealed seams to guarantee that you stay dry. We gave the kit a relaxed fit for style, and the jacket features a slightly longer length that’s much appreciated when spending an extended time cruising around town.
Triple protection from the elements
The triple-layer zipper design provides two additional barriers to seal out wind and moisture when you hit the throttle.
Under-arm vents designed for ease and customization
This jacket features classic under-arm vents with double zippers, making them easy to open, close, and adjust the size of the vent.
Because you can never have too many pockets
With 4 external pockets, a goggle-specific pocket and a smart-pocket for your phone, this jacket has storage for all your adventure essentials—and then some. Remembering which pocket you put things in is up to you.
How Thinsulate performs against down
While down retains heat very well, it simply doesn’t breathe. We use water resistant 3M™ Thinsulate™ blown in insulation, a synthetic blend that wicks away moisture and allows heat to dissipate. This keeps you warm like down—yet comfortable and dry—while you’re doing winter chores around the house, running errands, and going on neighborhood adventures.
A collar designed with helmets in mind
The collar is just tall enough to meet the base of your helmet. It’s low-profile design seals out the elements without getting in the way. Lined with fleece for comfort.
How the Hoback jacket adapts
This jacket has a snow skirt that can form a tight seal with the bib. Use the “transport mode” buttons to tuck it away for your next powder day.
Why we use synthetic, blended insulation
Our insulation is made from a blend of different fibres, each with their own unique structure and qualities. Some fibres are added for puffiness, others for thermal efficiency. And while down insulation can clump, this blend of synthetic insulation keeps its shape, even if it goes through the wash.
