Black Diamond Access LT Hybrid Jacket - Women's
An ultralight belay jacket for long multi-pitch rock routes, an insulating mid-layer for winter alpine climbs or a shell layer for early spring ski tours, this is a jacket for all trades. It uses a fusion of synthetic insulation and stretchy soft shell fabric to create a versatile, packable, lightweight puffy. PrimaLoft Gold in the body provides core insulation while the Pertex Quantum outer shields against wind and rain. Climbing specific gusseted underarm panels provide efficient movement in the vertical environment and help regulate your temperature.
- Outer fabric is Pertex Quantum nylon ripstop, with Schoeller® stretch-woven soft shell panels with NanoSphere technology to shed water and grime.
- PrimaLoft Gold® insulation through the body core.
- Stretch cuffs are optimized for low bulk and effective layering.
- Drawcord hem provides adjustability for retaining heat.
- Fit is lean and athletic.
|Face fabric||20-denier ripstop nylon|

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