Vollebak, which means “all out” in Flemish, is an adventure brand launched last year by athletes / designers Nick and Steve Tidball. Their Condition Black Jacket is purpose built to save your bacon in the most extreme backcountry snowboarding, snowkiting, downhill mountain biking and skiing circumstances. Using two trademarked pieces of technology, ceraspace and NanoSphere, each jacket is like a piece of armor for snow sports and adventure. The 19 ceraspace panels in the jacket protect you from repeated 75mph falls and is hard enough to scar rock. The NanoSphere coating on the Schoeller WB-400 softshell gives you a textured surface that sloughs off water and dirt while still keeping you warm, dry and protected from the wind. If that’s not enough in a coat of armor, there are also magnetic survival pockets to help keep you in the fetal position if things go awry.
