Slightly long and super stylish, Dakine's Brentwood Women's Jacket looks like it was plucked off a New York runway, but fashion-first gear can't match its on-mountain functionality. Good luck finding a designer parka that can actually keep you warm like the Brentwood's Primaloft Silver insulation, or one that can fight off the snow like the Brentwood's two-layer 10K waterproof and breathable membrane, fully taped seams, and water-repellent DWR treatment. The insulation is slightly lighter in the hood and sleeves for unrestricted mobility, and Dakine finished the Brentwood off with a super-soft brushed tricot and taffeta lining that feels good against bare skin and slides easily over layers so you don't have to fight that marshmallowy feel while you tear through the trees.
Since you'll be spending time on the slopes and not at the cocktail reception, you'll be psyched on the Brentwood's killer array of features, starting with the mesh-lined underarm vents and stow-away Lycra powder skirt. They'll help you stay comfortable and snow-free, respectively, while the hook-and-loop cuffs, drawcord hem, and dual-drawcord hood can all be cinched down to seal you up tightly against the elements. Dakine hooked up a whole mess of pockets, too, and finished the Brentwood with leather details and a removable faux-fur ruff to boost your couture credentials, even though you're more concerned with boosting in the park than looking like you just jetted in from Paris.
