Backcountry Warrior

From contest podiums to backcountry exploration, pro skier Sammy Carlson has always skied his own line. Every season, the Oregon native continues to push the boundaries on his skis, so when designing his signature Highline Pro it was mandatory that this jacket was as individual as Sammy. Highly breathable, windproof, and durably waterproof, this jacket is built to endure the elements of the Pacific Northwest—which means it’ll perform anywhere. But it wouldn’t be Sammy Carlson’s gear without a significant dose of style. The result is inspired innovation: a backcountry-ready jacket with streetwear aesthetics with a subtle nod to our retro roots


"This jackets technical & lightweight design keeps me dry on the stormiest of days and feeling good on the skin track."

- Sammy Carlson



GORE-TEX® performance fabric is durable, waterproof, windproof and optimized for breathability. 


Keep the performance level high and limit your impact on the environment. 86% of this jacket is made from recycled plastic bottles.  Durable, PFC FREE hydrophobic treatment is an eco-friendly water repellent that keeps you dry while being kind to the planet.



Oregon native Sammy Carlson first entered the skiing consciousness through his unique take on the park. A freestyle phenom, Sammy won five X Games medals early in his career and landed the first triple rodeo 1260 in 2010, earning recognition and awards from his peers, Powder Magazine and more. But this was merely the foundation for where Sammy really wanted to go. When freesking entered the Olympics in 2014, Sammy wasn’t interested. The backcountry was calling.

It’s there among giant peaks that Sammy has further secured his legacy (of course, he since snagged three more X Games golds in the Real Ski backcountry video competition, too). Growing up on the terrain of Mount Hood, Sammy always sought out the unusual, pushing past the expected on his skis. Part of this is that his style is deeply rooted in his love of surfing; Sammy’s always chasing the free feeling of deep cuts and smooth turns in the mountains and it’s easy to see—Sammy skis like no one else.

Sammy’s filming career began when he was only 12. Now in his early 30s, his video resume is stacked. He’s filmed with iconic crews like Poor Boyz, had award-winning video parts, driven full features, notably Teton Gravity Research’s The Sammy C Project in 2015, and released an entire series, called Retrospect, that looks back at his entire canon of segments. But the celebrated parts are only a piece of why Sammy Carlson is one of the very best to ever drop in on skis. He’s got a pow turn like no other and a no-holds-barred, full throttle sending style, even on the most technical terrain. Sammy now spends his winters in British Columbia, exploring the expansive BC backcountry and every season, he continues to up the ante. His philosophy when filming? “Stack A-clips, then turn the A-clips into B-clips.” In 2020, Sammy released Resilience, a deeper look into his season, his experience, and the path his skiing has taken thus far. He followed that up with North of Now in 2021, a downhill rumination on backcountry terrain in British Columbia. North of Now was eleven minutes of Sammy’s finest work yet—or is it play? For the PNW native, it’s more the latter than the former—all with no sign of slowing down.
