First Ascent Neoteric Jacket - Review
The Neoteric Shell is First Ascent’s top of the line ski shell. Constructed with Polartec NeoShell, the jacket is designed for everything from lift-accessed powder to backcountry heli runs. In September 2013 the jacket won Outside Magazine’s coveted “Gear of the Year” award.
The jacket is built around Polartec’s Neoshell membrane. NeoShell is a unique fabric that offers the stretch of a soft shell with the waterproof and breathable performance of a hardshell. Its unique construction allows moisture to easily escape, while remaining waterproof. This makes it ideal for highly aerobic activities such as mountaineering, ski mountaineering and backcountry skiing.
