In the war of snowboarding apparel, since it is arming ourselves against nature and frostbite we are talking about here, it is better to be cautious head for the protective and highly technical than something that skimps. Nike Snowboarding enters the market for snowboarding and ski wear and promises to shake up the competition, thus keeping other labels such as Burton on their toes. The Rosewood Jacket from Nike Snowboarding is one of the strongest contenders from the apparel line-up with 10,000mm waterproof and 10,000gm breathable specifications. Aside from a water-resistant yet ventilated body, the jacket also wards against winds with fully-taped seams, elastic cuffs and hem, and a music player compatible pocket. Like any good snowboarding jacket, it also comes with jacket to pants interface on the removable powder skirt– because no one wants to get chills down their spine from physically touching powder during a fall.
The jacket comes in two clean yet energetic colorways of black, red and grey, and yellow, blue and grey, mimicking some colorways familiar on your favorite Nike kicks. The jacket is currently available at select retailers such as CCS.
