Volcom are a brand with a proud 30 plus year history, its origins can be traced back to the Lake Tahoe snow dumps of March 1991. Richard Woolcott and Tucker Hall set off on a journey that would forever change their lives, after more than a week of waking up to two feet of fresh snow they developed an obsession. During this life altering period (trust us, once you’ve had a true powder experience, you’ll know the feeling too) they had talked about starting a clothing company, from that conversation Volcom was born. The idea was simple, start a clothing brand based around the sports they love (snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing) and with $5000 they started the journey toward becoming the iconic brand Volcom is today.
Volcom are a forward-thinking brand and their 2021 technical range of snow products is full of innovation, quality, and functionality to make your next trip to the snow one to remember. For the 2021 snow season some of our favourite Mens Outerwear products include the Volcom Mens TDS 2L Gore-Tex Jacket. With its 2-layer GORE-TEX shell it’s guaranteed to keep you dry and it also has 40g of quilted low-loft insulation to keep you warm.
