Roxy Essence 2L Gore-tex jacket blizzard ready

snow action team 20.08.2020

The Roxy Essence 2L Gore-tex® jacket is the latest in hi-tec low weight snow gear to cope with any conditions in style.

As some serious winter blizzards smash the Aussie Alps this week there’s no better time to be wearing it!

From dry Japow to old fashioned Aussie ‘liquid snow’, the Roxy Essence jacket will keep you out there for as long as you want to ride. Whatever nature hits you with, you’ll stay dry and snug within.

The Gore-tex® membrane lets the moisture out and lets your body breath. Gore-tex® ratings are considered to be higher than 25-30,000mm waterproof and 15-20,000g breathability.

For those good days the tuck away powder skirt and jacket-to-pant attachment system bring back the only actual benefit of onesie snow gear (keeping snow out) without the disadvantages.

Smart features you’ll love include the 3-way adjustable hood with wire face visor so you don’t steam up with it up. Of course it’s helmet compatible too. Team it with the Roxy Angie lid is our fashion meets function tip for that today, but it retro fits nicely with Ms Snow Action’s 10 year old Roxy helmet from 2010 (still her favourite and still going strong).

Come spring (or those crazy mid-winter warm days we get too many of!) just open up the smart design upper arm vents. You can wear it over a single layer if you want – making it the perfect all season jacket.

A surprise bonus in the pocket is the Roxy HydroSmart technology storm mask balaclava. It also doubles as an emergency face mask in these COVID restriction times.

Stand out style, outstanding performance

We love pockets, and the Essence delivers with internal pockets for goggles and media, a chest and zip hip pocket left side and double hip top button pocket plus side zip pocket on the right side are perfect for stashing whatever you need to.

Another advantage of being so lightweight is the versatility to be street style as well as snow style. As soon as flights fire up again it would be fine to take as carry-on to save on your luggage allowance/costs and slip it on when you arrive to chilly Sapporo for example – a couple of years back we left 42° in Sydney and arrived to -20° there for example.

The tailored slim fit line adds to that versatility.

It’s the second top model in the current Roxy snow jackets lineup, $AUD 649.99 – in stores and online here
