The Akin is everything you ever wanted in a jacket, and a whole lot more. We took inspiration from old school utility jackets and decked this one out with seven outer pockets. Never worry again with this awesome design. Just zip up, load up, and head into the great unknown. Highly waterproof and insulated enough to tackle the harshest weather, the Akin is an easy park cruiser, and a big mountain bruiser. This is where we'd drop the mic, if we had one.
Purpose-built for skiing and snowboarding, and packed with the features and tech you'll need for a day on the mountain.
Medium-weight insulation for perfect balance between warmth and performance (60gsm body, 40gsm sleeves and hood).
Dope DRYTECH membrane offers superior waterproofing and breathability through the use of hydrophilic membrane technology. Actively drawing moisture from the skin, the membrane keeps you dry even during intense sessions.
We equip all our fabrics with the PFC-free ECO Huntsman Zelan R3 DWR treatment. Water beads right off instead of soaking in, meaning improved waterproofing and reduced moisture ingress even in severe weather conditions and deep powder.
We fully tape our seams to make sure water can't get in. The seams are the weakest point of any garment, so by using a special tape that makes them totally waterproof, you can ride in the deepest powder or the gnarliest storms with confidence.
We use Sorona ECO insulation, which is made partially from renewable, plant-based fibres, and provides warmth-to-weight ratio for true all-day comfort.
Our shells are a 2-layer laminated fabric, with a super-tough woven outer, and our own Dope DRYTECH waterproof membrane underneath. A DWR treatment is then applied, providing great waterproofing, breathability, and resistance to wear in all situations (80,000 Martindale score minimum).
