Backcountry ski tours and alpine climbing will never be the same.

The Axiom Jacket from Outdoor Research has changed the game and upped the ante. Using GORE-TEX Active Shell, the Axiom maintains an extremely high level of breathability while giving you complete protection from the elements. Articulated elbows along with a slight stretch in the fabric allow for maximum mobility. A helmet compatible hood and harness or pack compatible pockets make this jacket an essential piece of backcountry gear.

    Comments about Outdoor Research Axiom Jacket - Men's:

    I have about 30 ski tour days and 20 hiking days in my Axiom. The Axiom stuffs into its own pocket and packs to the size of a water bottle. There are some smaller-packing "insect wing" shells on the market, but none that offer true alpine wind and weather protection like this. This isn't a gossamer layer, it's real Goretex that cuts wind and sheds snow. The sleeves fit long for active movement, the overall cut is slim and athletic so nothing is left flapping in the breeze. The hood adjustment works well w/ or w/out a helmet, even while wearing gloves. Fair warning though, this Goretex active fabric does require that you refresh the DWR. If you think outerwear should never be cleaned or re-treated, then this isn't the jacket for you. My only gripe is that the side pockets are un-useable while wearing a pack.

      Comments about Outdoor Research Axiom Jacket - Men's:

      I love this jacket. The fit is great (plenty of length in the sleeves). Its very durable and can shed water all day. I have yet to take this jacket up into an alpine environment, but after hearing first hand accounts I am confident that it will perform well.

        Comments about Outdoor Research Axiom Jacket - Men's:

        I've worn this jacket - and its prototype - since June and it has quickly become my go-to jacket. That's the jacket that I grab 80% of the time, and have to justify replacing it with something else. I've skied big multi-day tours and climbed long alpine routes in this jacket, and it has a degree of ventilation and stretch that I never thought possible with a Gore-Tex fabric. I'm really looking forward to using it this winter skiing.

          Comments about Outdoor Research Axiom Jacket - Men's:

          A great jacket that allows for lots of movement -far more they you normally get out of a hardshell. It's light enough to take rock climbing and burly enough to wear ice climbing. I used mine on a big wall ice climbing expedition to Juneau and felt it preformed great.
