Why we chose the Montec Doom Jacket: Versatile, warm, weatherproof
Sizes: XS – XXL
Insulation: Medium weight insulation
Helmet Compatible: Yes
Montec’s aim with their all-new Doom Jacket was to bring in insulation to their traditional shell jackets. By doing this, they ultimately hoped to create a versatile ski jacket that required less layering while tackling various weather conditions around the mountain. This ski jacket has been designed to stay true to Montec’s clean silhouettes. It comes fully equipped with an asymmetrical, high-tech, aesthetic.
In order to fit with the all-mountain versatility vibes, Montec have gone and included a non-slip elasticated snow skirt. This means that no matter how deep the powder, you’ll be more likely to stay completely dry. Power Mesh inner pockets are hidden on the inside of the jacket, and they’re perfect for storing accessories such as goggles or gloves. Save them from being laid in the snow and getting cold when not in use.
A large media pocket on the opening to the half-zip jacket is also included, perfect for storing phones as big as the modern smartphones now go. The jacket is also packing an internal headphone cord outlet. Ideal, if like me, you refuse to buy into the bluetooth headphone market (bring back the late 2000s Skullcandy Era please).
This jacket has an optional half zip feature as well as an asymmetrical full zip. It feels like a setup designed to elevate a sense of versatility for the wearer and, quite frankly, it works.
