When the lines are as steep as they are deep, step into the Haglöfs Men's Vassi Snow Suit, summon your inner norse ski god, and slay some pow behind the armor-like protection of this bomb-proof shell. Sweden-based Haglöfs has been turning out quality mountain goods since the winds of Thor began to blow cold ... well maybe not that long, but it started in 1914 when Wiktor Haglöf started making backpacks from his cottage tucked away in the woods of Sweden. The Vassi Snow Suit brings a healthy respect for the past, as well as a modern design for the modern freeskier.
The 3-layer Gore-Tex shell provides ample protection from snow, wind, and ice, but remains highly breathable for when you're lapping your favorite powder stashes. Meanwhile, two slanted ventilation zippers along the front allow you to quickly lose excess heat. The helmet-compatible hood has a 3-way adjustable design, and the internal boot gaiters prevent snow from crawling in from the bottom.
