Founded in Hawaii in 1979 and located at the base of Mt. Hood in Hood River, Oregon, Dakine builds backpacks, travel bags, accessories, outerwear, and clothing for people who snowboard, surf, skateboard, mountain bike, windsurf, kiteboard, and travel.
With the WyEast Jacket, Stoker 3L GORE-TEX Bib, Smyth Pure 2L GORE-TEX Jacket, and the Brentwood Jacket as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, Dakine highlighted a collection of outerwear built to meet the demands of snowboarders around the globe.
WyEast JacketMSRP: $260
Colors: Black/Field Camo, Balsam/Black, Russet/Fennel
From long days spent on the hill, to perhaps longer nights spent out on the town, it's important to have a jacket for every occasion. It's even better if you can have one jacket for all of those occasions. Dakine's WyEast is ready to fit that bill. Function, fashion, and everything in between, this jacket was full of features to keep testers warm and dry both on their boards and off. So whether it was a stormy morning on the hill, a hot tub mission in the afternoon, or just a night out at the bar, the WyEast will had us doing it in style.
Stoker 3L GORE-TEX BibMSRP: $420
Colors: Amethyst/Black, Fennel, Black
Whether you spend the majority of time in the backcountry, or you're just someone who enjoys ample storage in a high performance pant, the Stoker 3L GORE-TEX Bib is your go-to piece of outerwear. With enough pockets to stash everything we needed – whether that was a transceiver, phone, snacks or perhaps some herbal remedies – this bib was capable of carrying it all comfortably and functionally. But most importantly, the Stoker's 3L GORE-TEX construction ensured that we – and all our belongings – remained dry regardless of the conditions.
Smyth Pure 2L GORE-TEX JacketMSRP: $300
Colors: Balsam/Black, India Ink/Fennel, Black
This high performance shell from Dakine has become a team and tester favorite both in the backcountry and within the resort boundaries. With a GORE-TEX 2 Layer construction that's packed to the brim with convenient features, it's no reason why. From everything including a user-friendly interior mesh goggle pocket, to a secure, media-compatible chest compartment, the Smyth Pure jacket had room for all of our precious belongings and more. Top it all off with a clean looking fit and design, and this is a jacket that might just end up being your favorite, too.
Brentwood JacketMSRP: $260
Colors: Ginger, Balsam, Shark/Amethyst
This streetwear inspired jacket and its subtle features put a bit of feminine touch on a traditional, high-performing coat. From its longer length and cinched waist, to its removable faux fur hood trim, the Brentwood just oozed style. It was a jacket that looked just as good heading out to brunch as it did performing in the backcountry – all thanks to its stylish peached oxford 2 Layer shell. And with the soft and cozy PrimaLoft SILVER ECO insulation – which utilizes 70% post consumer recycled content – you can feel extra warm inside knowing that you did your part to help the environment.
