A Truly Breathable Snowboarding Jacket

ride (1)Men’s Journal, February 28, 2014

Thanks to vents and a new, high-tech fabric, the Ride Admiral is one of the most breathable snowboarding jackets we’ve ever worn.

Most days on the mountain, your own sweat is a bigger threat than Mother Nature. To keep you dry, jackets often rely on user-controlled venting (strategically placed zippers) and breathable fabrics to keep your perspiration under control. The Ride Admiral does, too, but also adds Cocona, a material derived from coconut husks that the company claims “removes moisture while it’s forming.” An exaggeration, perhaps, but it’s still one of the most breathable snowboarding jackets we’ve ever worn.
