The Volcom Gigi Ruf Snowboard Jacket features Volcom TDS which stands for Thermal Defense System. TDS is rider tested and approved via trips and round tables with Gigi as well as team riders Mark Landvik, Elena Hight, Jamie Lynn and Curtis Ciszek.
The idea behind TDS is a jacket built for optimum protection during a blizzard highlighting 3 different areas:
1. Protection against the elements in the hood, shoulders and top of the arms.
2. Maximum insulation for your core.
3. Minimum insulation and max breathability in the armpit and side area.
Not only is this jacket built for your best riding experience it looks damn good too with a muted pop color palette. At $269.95 in the Alli Rideshop, this quality jacket will weather the storm this season.
