Volcom Zip Tech Jacket-to-Pant System Keeps Snow Out
CONNECT FROM THE LEFT, ZIP TO THE RIGHT, COVER & SHRED!
It’s no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let’s face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on a icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort.
Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® “zip your jacket to your pants” system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defense in keeping your body dry and your stoke high.
Inside and around the bottom of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® jackets is an inner powder skirt with a zipper running around the skirt that connects to a corresponding zipper track that sits just below the belt line of Volcom Outerwear Zip Tech® pants. Once connected, this hidden interface is the best barrier against snow finding its way into your outerwear. No other method of attaching a powder skirt or waist gator to your pants, be it through use of a series of buttons and clips, is as impenetrable to snow or offers the freedom of easy layering underneath as the patented Volcom Zip Tech® system does.
Cross compatible between Volcom Outerwear jacket and pants styles as long as both feature Zip Tech®, the system also works across sizes, so that a small Zip Tech® jacket will work with a large Zip Tech® pant.
