When designing new outerwear, it’s always been part of the Horsefeathers approach to consult with the experts. The pro team is intimately involved in crafting the latest line each year – and nowhere more so than in the Addicted To Powder series, overseen by Tyler Chorlton.
“It is absolutely chock-full of features, some of which could be difference-makers when you’re far out of bounds”
The Horsefeathers Hector snowboard jacket is one of the new pieces the Andorran-based backcountry bandit has had a hand in (both hands, actually; as well as designing and extensively testing it, he has even modelled it for the 2017/18 catalogue). It’s absolutely chock-full of features, some of which could be difference-makers when you’re far out of bounds.
The waterproofing and breathability ratings of the Horsefeathers Hector are high, if not stratospheric. They’re certainly fit for purpose, and ensure that the overall cost isn’t prohibitive. Under the water-repellant shell sits a light layer of Primaloft Silver 40g insulation, allowing you to layer up for colder days or lighten your load on a springtime tours.
