Volcom Alternate 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The Volcom Alternate Jacket is a pretty good fitting jacket for the price even though it’s a touch behind industry average waterproofing/breathability for the price.  If you can get over the small down pocket’s and lack of a real media pocket then it could work.
