Not one to be fooled by bluebird skies when you set out, you throw in your shell, a hat, and emergency chocolate for the last windy, shaded belay high on the route. This jacket is super-light and compressible, and small enough to be stuffed and clipped to your harness. It offers high levels of wind and water protection with excellent breathability.
