Built for the devoted freerider, the new Free Shell 2.0 is a specialist 3-layer shell program designed for hardcore winter exposure: big lines, big airs, epic powder days and the search for backcountry adventures — in any weather conditions. This jacket has a long, oversized fit for maximized freedom of movement, large ventilation zippers for fast temperature adjustment, a generous hood that will fit any helmet and technical details designed to excel in mountain terrain.
When we launched its predecessor a few years back, it was an instant hit with the freeriding community and basically sold out within weeks. Then Covid struck, and production was delayed, so we took the opportunity to update the Free Shell program down to the very last detail: a completely new fabric, significant technical upgrades, an adjusted oversized fit, and improvements based on the feedback from users all over the world — all while adhering to high environmental standards.
The newly developed 3-layer shell is built from a new 100% pre-consumer recycled Japanese nylon fabric, paired with the unrivalled Dermizax™ NX technology from Toray. It offers increased durability while maintaining the exceptional waterproofness, extraordinary breathability and low weight that professional riders demand. You will have a hard time finding any shell material that can compete with its performance.
The new YKK AquaGuard® 2-way ventilation zippers are slightly enlarged, and all zippers are stitched for improved durability. The collar is redesigned with laser-cut ventilation holes on the front placket. All pockets are oversized, providing plenty of room for pocket bacon, latschenkiefersalbe and other go-to gear. The fit is slightly updated for unrestricted freedom of movement and enhanced performance.
A striking monochrome styling offsets its boundary-pushing performance, keeping it current for years and making it easy to combine with other Free System signature colors.
The Free Shell Program is a part of The Free System™, our innovative ecosystem of premium technical layering products for progressive freeride performance and big lines.
Completely waterproof, completely stormproof and extremely breathable. Durably lightweight with an oversized fit.
100% recycled Dermizax NX 3-ply nylon fabric, made in Japan.

2-way-adjustable fixed hood that will accommodate larger-sized helmets.
Embedded cord lock adjustment of hood.
Elongated with a straight cut for extra protection and for staying tucked under a harness.
