Fit and Features
Designed with a regular fit, the jacket and the pants have been cut to sit comfortably around the rider, without restricting your movement. The female range has also been tailored to compliment the female figure, making the design slightly more hugging than the male ones. The female version of the pants also comes with a women-specific elastic waist adjustment for a better fit.
The 3-in-1 jacket is equipped with all the necessary features, and more. An elastic powder skirt that helps to keep you dry, an adjustable helmet-compatible hood, underarm vent zips, front zip pockets, chest zip pocket, an inner mesh pocket for goggles and a lift pass pocket with an integrated microfibre wipe.
For ultimate protection from the snow, both the jacket and the pants are equipped with a loop to connect the two with each other. On top of that, the pants have 2 hand zip pockets (the left one comes with an integrated hook solution), a tight cargo pocket with a zipper under the flap, inner leg ventilation zips with mesh, a protective rubber print at the bottom of the inside legs to avoid fabric damage from gear, pre-shaped knee area and 1 back flap pocket (but 2 shaping flaps at the back for an enhanced look).

Over the years, adidas has proven to us that they have an eye for style, and to be honest, they’ve managed to nail the look on their new technical outerwear too. With added sustainability and tech points, the new adidas TERREX 3L sustainable pants are gaining a lot of plus points from us, whilst the multifunctionality of the 3-in-1 jacket can be a lifesaver for many who struggle between the choice of a shell and an insulated jacket.
- At large, it is great to see adidas offering an equal range of men’s and women’s products with a customised fit for both genders
- Quality outerwear at a fairly reasonable price point
- adidas’s Rain.RDY technology isn’t exactly Gore-Tex Pro… but then again, neither is the price

“I rode in the Adidas Sustain Jacket for the week in Flachauwinkl. Paired with the Sustain bib pants, the set was really comfortable, just the right amount of bagginess to not feel restricted when cruising around the mountain. My only negative I would say is personally I’m not a fan of insulated outerwear, the jacket was 2-layer which you could get away with, but the bibs were fully insulated.
I’m quite tall with long limbs and I was impressed with the arm length on the Sustain, even when you were bending over to adjust your bindings the cuff didn’t ride up. I liked the high neck / storm hood to keep the elements out and the hood fitted well with a helmet for those days when you want to batten down the hatches on the chairlift.
The pockets were nice and spacious, I was able to fit a Go-Pro and handle in the chest pocket with plenty of space for snacks and sun cream in the other pockets. The material felt bomb-proof, it had a rough texture to it which felt like it would withstand any nicks from snowboard edges throughout the season and Adidas’s technical waterproofing stood up during the week when we got rained on. Overall, I was impressed with the jacket. One to look cool on and off the hill.”

“I was surprised how good this jacket was in warm spring weather. The material felt so hard-wearing that I thought it might become a bit of a sweat bag in the heat. But it was actually pretty cool and breathable. The fit was also good, even for a taller guy like myself which was cool. No tiny sleeves or a 90’s boob tube for the body, just a proper comfortable fit. I found myself wearing this one for a few days as it was so comfy.
My only gripe – the zips felt a little like the cheap zips you find on a kids coat. It’s far from the biggest issue a coat could face, but it’s worth mentioning.”
