The removable Storm Liner of the Sequoia is touch screen compatible, so you can stay connected on the lift without going barehanded, and it's convenient for drying liners out after a long day, or giving them a much needed cleaning. The gauntlet style shell is water repellent and durable, and the GORE-TEX insert featuring Gore Warm technology adds a layer of warmth and waterproofing in-between. The Rubbertec palm improves grip and brings rugged durability to the most heavily-worn area of it. But the real genius of this is the external water resistant zipper stash. It's great for securing a locker key or cash for the cafeteria, and it doubles as a heat pack pocket when the weather takes a foul turn.
