Why we chose the Volcom Arthur Longo GTX Jacket and Pant Snowboard Outerwear: Equipped for versatile riding to help you make flow like Longo in S.H.E.

“This project was all about benefiting from the decades of Pat’s (Pat Field-Volcom Outerwear Designer) experience but at the same time trying to step away from what he’s used to make. We both love it and hope you will too.” – Arthur Longo

With his seemingly effortless flow and ability to tackle any kind of terrain with grace, Arthur Longo has become one of the most influential riders in the game. With chameleon-like adaptability, this Frenchman is all about versatility, which is why together with Volcom Arthur has designed an outfit that works for it all – the updated Arthur Longo GTX Jacket and Pant are back for their second season.

Who Are The Volcom Arthur Longo GTX Jacket and Pant For?

This is for the rider looking for an outfit that can do it all and do it well. Guaranteed to keep you dry, the Gore-Tex fabric is as rigid as it gets, while the signature Arthur Longo design will give you a confidence boost and get you flying like the man himself (or at least you’ll feel like it).

Materials and Construction

Thanks to a PFC-free DWR coating, fully taped seams and a Gore-Tex shell, Volcom is able to offer a jacket and pair of pants that do an exquisite job at keeping the elements at bay.

Gore-Tex, being the industry leader when it comes to offering durable, waterproof, membranes, might be a slightly spennier option but definitely worth the money. With maximum waterproofing, there’s no need to worry about snow or rain getting in, whilst the also breathable membrane allows water vapour to evaporate into the air keeping you dry from the inside too.

While doing an excellent job at keeping out the elements, its lack of insulation also provides for the possibility to layer up for colder days while making the jacket ideal for warmer spring sessions too. This gives you the opportunity to better regulate the temperature according to your own needs, making this an excellent choice no matter the weather.

Fit and Features

Quoting Arthur’s own words, “Most of all we wanted to nail the silhouette and the fit of the collection. I went for something a bit more baggy and boxy than what I would usually wear because I was excited about this direction.”

The Arthur Longo GTX Jacket is designed with a relaxed but not oversized fit, while the pants are cut in a more roomy and relaxed fit.

By adding cuffs both on the jacket and the pants, Longo wanted to add to the outerwear’s individuality. With a jacket to pant interface, you can also easily attach the two thus making it harder for snow to get underneath the jacket.

As for the jacket, it also comes with a removable hood, a super suede chin guard for added comfort and brushed tricot-lined handwarmer pockets for the hands to rest in.

With the input of a rider like Arthur Longo, it’s a no brainer that the Arthur Longo GTX Jacket and Pant excel in so many different fields. If you’re keen to mimic the smooth flow of the guy himself, this outfit will help you do so.

Trade Secrets

Patrick Field – Global VP Design, Volcom Outerwear

“When Volcom and Arthur first began working on his collection, snowboard outerwear was on the verge of a change. Arthur was looking for new fits, technical features, and aesthetics overall. By aligning we were able to jump start these forward thinking designs ahead of the curve. Arthur’s pure power as a rider was the perfect platform to start experimenting with these new styles to create a truly rider driven collection. As a designer, it’s been a pleasure working alongside Arthur Longo. Not only is he one of my favourite riders and humans but oozes style from tip to tail. These opportunities do not come along that often.”
