For some, education is a compass that dictates the path into a particular job, career, or lifestyle. For John, he already found his way, he's just gaining the necessary tools to eat food long after he retries his park tricks for nipple deep days and a comfortable place to rest his head.

In the backcountry, there is this feeling between the instant that you pop and the impact from landing your trick where cognitive thought stops and everything comes into focus. It's a split second where you see the exact outcome of the trick prior to it happening. Your grab, body position, and how you ride away all come naturally as you stare down that small patch of transition on the other side.
This winter, we encourage you to find your moment of truth and want to keep you looking fresh as you ride away from that perfect trick, on the perfect day, surrounded by friends.

With trips to Mt. Hood, Whistler, New Zealand, and Argentina, our athletes ski year round and log 270 + days on snow. With so much exposure to UV rays, they would be forced to apply sunscreen multiple times a day in backcountry environments and terrain parks throughout the world. Along with being incredibly tedious, using that much sunscreen would require packing another item in their suitcases and be a very costly endeavor.
As a solution to this issue, we created the Watson Neck Gaitor to keep you looking fly and protected from UVA and UVB rays.
Sunscreen is played! Mask up!

With 10,000mm fabrics, custom trims and detailing, lycra wrist gaskets w/ thumbholes, sealed seams, mesh lined venting, pit zip ventilation, media pockets, a fade snow gaiter that acts as a tall-t, and a host of other features, the format jacket is absolutely baller. Here's Josh Bishop wearing the Format with an all-overprint Watson's Neck Gaitor.
Mad props to Jack Boyd capturing these in Breckenridge, CO.
