Show Description

All of the function and performance of waterproof-breathable shell, at around half the standard weight. Think of fast, light alpine ascents or all-day ski tours where you'll encounter changeable mountain conditions. This jacket breathes freely and has fully taped seams and a DWR treatment to round out the protection. The trim silhouette moves with your body, and movement-mirroring stretch fabric ensures you retain full mobility.

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.

Length Below hip
Durable water repellency

Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
