Fashion Friday outdoors: Telluride’s Jagged Edge features windstopper jacket

P1110009 When the January freeze is over and done, Telluriders tend to store our down jackets and grab for our soft shells.

" Softshell jackets combine the hard-wearing aspects of a Gore-Tex jacket with the mobility, breathability and feel of a much softer fabric," explains Erik Dalton of Jagged Edge. "Though they won’t replace your rain jacket come summertime, these softshell jackets are perfectly suited for our cold and dry conditions in the mountains of Colorado, and for the ups-and-downs of backcountry skiing, hiking, and ski mountaineering."

Erik's pick: Cloudveil's Rayzar, a jacket that offers protection from the fiercest storms and coldest chair rides, while keeping the wearer cool when it comes time to move.

Designed to excel at high altitudes like Telluride and in harsh conditions, the Rayzar's oversized pockets swallow gear you need to keep close. Its drawcord at the waist and a fully lined helmet-compatible hood seal out the elements. A fleece lining keeps things warm and comfy on the inside, while the flexible jacket fabric allows for full mobility without the familiar “crunch” of many Gore-Tex Hard Shells. The durability of the Rayzar is second to none, and a blend of thick nylon fabric and just  enough spandex gives just the right amount of stretch. When fresh tracks and first descents run out, the Rayzar Jacket looks equally at home on Main Street or sidling up to the bar.

The Rayzar is available in a variety of colors and sizes for both men and women. Price: $300.00
