Riding powder – it’s just awesome, isn’t it? That feeling of floating and bouncing your way down a face, leaning back and slashing, giving yourself a solid faceshot far from the motorway pistes… nothing comes close. The guys at Horsefeathers are as hooked on ripping angel poop as we are, and as such have cooked up a new line focussed on performing on the deep days – after all, to get the most out of your time away from the resort crowds, you need rock solid, reliable gear and this is why they went all-in on a new, hi-end special edition line: AddictedToPowder

To develop this range they worked with team rider Tyler Chorlton, a seasoned pro who is equally at home on huge kickers as he is on huge faces. Tyler personally contributed ideas to and tested each item in the range, giving you the comfort of knowing that they have been tried to the limits and can handle whatever conditions your adventures throw at you! #addictedtopowder

“I set out to do tricks on various features of all different shapes and sizes and most importantly: out of the way of the crowds, in total silence and harmony with the mountain before drop in, into deeeep pow!” Tyler Chorlton



This lightweight shell uses fully taped UltraTech 3-layer fabric with 20k/15k waterproofness/breathability rating to keep the elements out. It’s made of stretch nylon so you know it will be unrestrictive and feel like a second skin.

The Nelson features a powder skirt that with jacket-to-pant connectors, wrist gaiters, and a brushed tricot chinguard. There are all the pockets you need – pass, media and fleece-lined handwarmer ones – and all the adjustments are designed to be used with one hand. It’s a shell, so you’ll need to layer accordingly underneath.

If you’re a powder purist needing the ultimate in protection from the weather in a lightweight package, take a look at this.

SIMON Jacket


The Simon comes with zonal Primaloft Silver insulation built in (40g in the body and sleeves) allowing you to take it easier on the layers when you head out to shoot tree lines.

This regular-fit jacket has a 15k/10k fabric to flip the weather the bird in all but the most extreme conditions, backed up by fully taped seams. It’s loaded with features – adjustable fixed hood, powder skirt, media pocket with touch-sensitive transparent window and much more.

From park laps to backcountry kicker sessions, you can be sure the Simon has got what it takes.

In many ways this is the same jacket as the Simon – it packs the same punch in terms of waterproofness and breathability, has the same amount of Primaloft insulation, and shares all the same features – from cuffs and gaiters to one-pull adjustability.

Again, it uses mechanical stretch nylon and has a regular fit for comfort and performance. Where it differs is in the pocket placement and overall styling – the Simon has more of a classic mountainwear look, while the Carnes has a bit of street swagger to it.

Riders who want the protection for powder days but without the look should definitely check this out.

With their bombproof construction and high specifications, these Majestic pants are perfect for long days lapping pow.

15k of waterproofness and 10k of breathability will ensure your comfort whether it’s bluebird faceshots or socked in storm riding and the detatchable elongated waist gaiter can be hitched up over your belly button to seal you in perfectly on those tit-deep days. You can zip open the bottom if you want that flared steeze, and there’s a liberal application of Cordura to toughen up zones that get a lot of wear.

These also have fleece-lined pockets to warm up your fingers in, plus a couple of other stash spots too for your essentials.

When the mercury heads way south you’ll be glad to have the Walsh jacket in your armoury.

This ultralight, yet ultra warm jacket can be used under a shell when conditions are Baltic, but if you feel yourself getting too toasty it packs down into its own bag which you can then toss in your backpack.

Plus when you’re off the hill the Walsh makes for a killer street jacket, and it even has a DWR coating so you don’t need to stress if it’s dumping on the walk home from the bar.
