Volcom Melancon Gore Tex 2023 - 2022 Review by The Good Ride

The Volcom Melancon Gore Tex Jacket is a very waterproof and breathable shell that comes with a relaxed, semi baggy fit. But without being too long. It has a mid length torso, a removable hood, and a powder skirt. It comes in a very wide variety of sizes from XXS to XXL.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average rider’s perspective.

How This Review Happened: We borrowed this from Gravity Sports at Mt Bachelor to test the fit and features of the jacket.
