Gigi’s awesome, Volcom are awesome, this jacket’s awesome. Read why…

Aside from being designed by one of our favourite riders in the history of ever and featuring all the Volcom features you’d expect of a pro-level jacket (15/10k fully taped fabric, pull-out Face Tech balaclava, Zip Tech jacket-to-pant interface, vents, pockets, ‘n’ that), what makes the Volcom Gigi Rüf jacket special is the TDS Zonal insulation. Using strategic layering construction, this has lightweight warmth in specific zones mixed with wicking material all over so you stay sweat free. The result is warmth where you need it without compromising ease of movement, so you can get way more awesome whatever the conditions.

Check out Gigi’s part for the X Game Real snow contest. He’s up against Jussi and while both parts are rad, we reckon Gigi just edges this one.
