Show Description

When Mother Nature stirs up the breezes, you can pull out this protective wind shell. (RD stands for Rapid Deployment.) Practically undetectable in your pack, it shelters you while it's your turn to belay, when you're taking a quick break or when you're pace drops and you need an extra light layer.

  • Made of Toray stretch fabric that provides a nice balance of breathability and wind resistance.
  • DWR treatment repels light precipitation.
  • Streamlined hood has elasticized binding tape to seal out breezes.
  • Collar is lined and has a chin guard so the zipper doesn't chafe your skin.
  • Chest pocket inverts into a storage sack for the jacket.

Waterproofness

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Windproofness

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
