Outdoor Research updated this award winning jacket. Check out the new version in the main photo above, and keep reading for a detailed overview of the changes!
The Axiom was the best fitting and most mobile jacket in this review. We loved how the combination of a GORE-TEX Active waterproof breathable membrane and stretchy ripstop face fabric made for a quiet and supple fit that never constricted. The hood, sleeves, and low hemline all did a great job of keeping out snow and provided great weather protection. We also liked the specific features, like the two-way zippers and a media pocket and port, that set it apart from the competition. The Axiom is a great all-around option, whether you are climbing ice or alpine routes, skiing laps at the resort, or simply hanging out in the snow.
