Armada Shifter GORE-TEX Pro Jacket 2013
The goal is simple: to build the best performing, most advanced outerwear possible. The Vector Series makes no compromises and delivers the performance demanded by our elite team of athletes and mountain professionals by utilizing GORE-TEX® fabric throughout the collection. The Vector Series ensures you are ready for whatever conditions you face.
GORE-TEX PRO 3-LAYER
Engineered for extended and extreme conditions, our GORE-TEX Pro outerwear is the optimum solution to meet the needs of our team, outdoor professionals, and serious skiers with tough, extremely breathable, waterproof and windproof protection. All components are built for maximized ruggedness while strict textile performance specifications ensure optimum strength and must pass Gore’s toughest test conditions and most aggressive rainstorm test.
Our GORE-TEX Pro 3-layer construction comprises a special high performance GORE-TEX membrane bonded to a tough outer material and Gore’s patent pending Micro Grid Backing. The benefit is no movement between the three layers, which means even greater durability, and incredibly strong yet lightweight garment.
Armada garments engineered with GORE-TEX product technology are durably waterproof and wind-proof combined with optimized breathability. Our GORE-TEX outerwear is guaranteed to maximize the wearers’ protection and comfort.
MICROGRID BACKING TECHNOLOGY
Used in our GORE-TEX Pro 3L products, this technology improves garment comfort and performance using an innovative patent pending internal backer fabric. This technology improves internal abrasion and snag resistance, enhances garment breathability and decreases garment weight. It also allows the garment to slide easily over mid-layers.
RECCO Avalanche Rescue System-At Armada we strongly support mountain safety and avalanche education in the backcountry. If you spend any time out of bounds, we urge you to get educated and be properly equipped. It is in this spirit we are very proud of our partnership with RECCO and feature their reflectors in our line.
RECCO is an avalanche rescue system utilized worldwide to facilitate the rapid location of burials. The two parts-reflector and detector-enable rapid pinpointing using harmonic radar but are not a substitute for transceiver use. Complementary in function, the RECCO system increases the chance of being found in time.

YKK AQUAGUARD VISLON Water Repellent Zippers-Used to seal off our garments from the elements. Both the AQUAGUARD COIL and new for 12/13, AQUAGUARD VISLON are used in our line. The AQUAGUARD VISLON had the advantage of plastic teeth that run smoother in winter weather and provide more opportunity for color combinations.

We use YKK Water Repellent Zippers on some of our garments to help seal them off from the elements.
