Inspired by creative spirit, Volcom was founded in 1991 and creates products for the persistent who are true to their passions. We were born to chase what we are true to. Volcom, True To This.
With the TDS INF GORE-TEX Jacket, Rain GORE-TEX Bib Overall, Winrose Insulated Jacket, and the Elm GORE Bib Overall as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, Volcom displayed their creative spirit with a drive to always remain True To This.
TDS INF GORE-TEX JacketMSRP: $600
Packing loads of high tech features into a simple and stylish shell, the TDS INF from Volcom was one of the best performing and best looking jackets tested. Featuring their Thermal Defense Technology (TDS) that strategically placed natural thermal down panels where we needed it most, while still remaining highly breathable thanks to its GORE-TEX C-Knit fabric construction, this jacket provided the utmost performance in a comfortable, classic-fitting package. And with details like Volcom's Zip-Tech jacket-to-pant interface and built in Face-Tech facemask, the elements never stood a chance.
Rain GORE-TEX Bib OverallMSRP: $370
Colors: Vintage Black, Black, Black Red, Shepherd
No one ever hopes to be riding in the rain, but, as we all are well aware, there's no controlling the weather. Well, with the Rain bibs from Volcom, at least our testers never had to worry about what the weather finally decided to do. Constructed with GORE-TEX 2L fabric, these shell bibs offered optimal protection from the elements – whether it was a rain-soaked afternoon or a waist-deep pow day. And with a Guide Proven Technology articulated fit, testers mentioned that, alongside staying dry all day long, they also remained mobile and comfortable thanks to an unrestricted design.
Winrose Insulated JacketMSRP: $160
Colors: Iridescent Magenta, Electric Blue, Black, Camoflauge, Crimson, Rose Wood
Admit it – while performance is paramount to picking out a new jacket for the winter, style is pretty darn important too. Well, don't feel like you have to settle between one or the other anymore because Volcom has you covered. Featuring V-Science Iridescent construction, the Winrose is one of Volcom's most fashion forward pieces in the women's line. Plus, with critically taped seams, a 10K waterproofing and breathability rating, and 100gm insulation, the Winrose was more than just a sleek looking jacket for our nights on the town – it also proved to be a high performing jacket for those long days on hill.
Elm GORE Bib OverallMSRP: $320
Colors: Camoflauge, Copper, Black
When it comes to powder day protection, bibs are pretty hard to beat. When it comes to using the bathroom in the middle of said powder day, well, they definitely can be beat. Not anymore thanks to Volcom's revamped Elm bibs. Now
featuring a unique drop seat construction that improved "rest stop" efficiency, these might just be the most user-friendly bibs on the women's market today. But quicker bathroom breaks aside, the Elm bib still proved to be a high-performing piece of outerwear thanks to its GORE-TEX 2L construction that features stretch and mobility in a Modern Slim Fit.
