Aether’s ‘Catalyst’ Is A Stretchy Snow Jacket With A Built-In Avalanche Beacon

Dec 1, 2020

Category: Gear

Aether’s well-rounded selection of outerwear has always left us excited for the winter season, thanks to its admirable array of technical trappings. While previous years have gifted us with a number of pronounced procurements, this season’s snow-savvy torso piece — dubbed the “Catalyst” — brings buyers a utilitarian shell catered toward the slick and slippery backcountry slopes.

The Aether ‘Catalyst’ snow jacket boasts a versatile collection of technical traits, including a fully seam-sealed Schoeller shell, breathable, two-way stretch fabric, and a zippered venting system for improved airflow when things get too stuffy. Since it’s been primed for the mountain, the example also features fully-integrated, weatherized zippers, Cohaesive cord locks, and a brim-based RECCO rescue reflector for additional visibility during inclement weather. To finish things off, a series of adjustable Velcro openings allow for easy resizing, meaning that you’ll be able to seal in some heat without having to worry about penetration by abhorrent winds, water, or snow. Head over to Aether’s website to pick up one of your own for $795.
