Why we chose the Armada Grands Jacket and Emmons Bib: Versatile, durable fabric, loads of pockets
Insulation: 3 Layered Shell Jacket
Waterproof/Breathability Rating: 10K/10K
Armada has traditionally held on strong to their background in the freestyle industry. However, the Grands Jacket and Emmons Bib are perfect for ripping resort laps with the family or the softer stuff on the deep snow days beyond the ropes. This ski jacket and pants combo is the perfect gateway for anyone to buy into the company which has had such a prestigious history in revolutionising freeskiing.
Coming with a pretty affordable price tag, the Grands Jacket and Emmons Bib are packing a 3-layer construction for improved breathability on the mountain. This is specially important when you’re crushing park laps, or touring to the hidden powder stashes, all day and working up a sweat. This 3-layer construction also allows the jacket to be super-packable, in the event of it getting too hot. It will go down small enough into the bottom of your bag, without you even noticing its added weight.
You’ve got four pockets on the front of the jacket and one lift pass pocket included to give plenty of storage options. No one likes cramming a wallet, phone, keys and lunch into one tiny pocket do they?
Each of the pockets cater for all sorts of bits and bobs. We love added functionality and storage so we’re giving this aspect of the product a great big tick. For the tiniest bit of added convenience, the Grands Jacket comes equipped with a mesh inner pocket too which is perfect for storing gloves or goggles when they aren’t in use.
