Volcom Womens 3D Stretch Gore-Tex 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The Volcom 3D Stretch Gore-Tex Jacket is fully insulated and has a great lightweight and flexible feel and has fully taped seams. This would be a great storm riding jacket, especially if you ride a mountain that gets the heavier wet snow. The hood fits great with a helmet for storm riding or even cold chairlift rides.
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 riders’ perspective.
Helmet: Smith Maze
Fit: The 3D jacket has a tailored long fit, the arm lengths are right where I like them, and it has enough room to layer under but you don’t get a baggy look at all. It feels lighter and moves much easier than normal Gore-Tex because of the stretch liner that it has and it feels light even though it has 60g of insulation.
Construction: Seems very well made, should hold up through a lot of laps and seasons.
Hood: The Fixed contoured hood that fits great over a helmet and leaves enough room for turning your head while riding.
Insulation/Warmth: The 3D Stretch jacket comes with 60g of Primaloft Gold Insulation that feels light and should keep you plenty warm.
Waterproofing: The 3D Stretch Jacket is a 2 layer Gore-Tex that is around 28k waterproofing that should keep you nice and dry even on those soggy storm days.
Breathability: 20k breathability
Packability: Normal packability, it is pretty light but don’t think it is made to pack down too compact.
Overall: If you are looking for a higher end jacket that can hang in most storm situations with the waterproof and windproof power of Gore-Tex then the Volcom 3D Stretch Jacket would be a good choice. The 60g of insulation will keep you warm but you can also layer up if you need to.
