Available in men's and women's versions, the Sharp Edge Jacket is made from tough 3-layer Pertex Shield Pro. As flexible as it is hard-wearing, this jacket sheds rain and snow with ease offering excellent breathability and freedom of movement.

Striking the balance between protection and comfort, the Sharp Edge has a refined ski specific feature set including chest pockets large enough for skins and a removable powder skirt. Alongside this, a helmet compatible hood can be cinched in to keep out snow and spindrift, while the YKK AquaGaurd Escape Artist pit zips are a quick and easy way to vent on steep climbs.
