Description

A truly audacious line requires just-right conditions and the right mindset to envision it. The Farpoint Jacket offers up the performance of a soft shell in a super-lightweight package you'd likely mistake for a wind shell. Designed to protect you from light precipitation when you're moving hard and fast, it's incredibly breathable and offers good wind resistance. A great option for alpine climbing, ski touring, scrambling, or mountain biking. It has a fully helmet compatible hood and is compressible enough to stuff into its own chest pocket to clip to a harness or slip in a pack.

  • Made of nylon Airtastic soft shell fabric that effectively blocks wind
  • Elasticized hood fits under a helmet
  • Partially elasticized hem and cuffs seal out drafts
  • Chest pocket has a reverse coil zip, and works as the jacket's stuff sack
  • Full-length lightly stiffened internal storm flap behind zipper
  • Machine wash in cold. Do not bleach or dry clean. Tumble dry on low
