Show Description

When you're battling spindrift, working your way up a dripping pillar, or encountering 1°C sleet, you can trust this waterproof and incredibly breathable piece of protection. The Realm Jacket is made with waterproof-breathable AscentShell, so it offers air permeability that's kind of revolutionary in a hardshell jacket. It lets you drop the hammer to get the pitch finished before conditions turn crazy-weird.

  • Made of 3-layer waterproof-breathable AscentShell stretch laminate that vents during high exertion.
  • Lightweight 20-denier nylon ripstop face and 12-denier polyester backer is highly packable.
  • Fully seam taped construction keeps wetness out.
  • Wire brimmed helmet compatible Halo-Hood won't block your peripheral.
  • Dynamic Reach underarm panels for full freedom of movement while climbing.
  • Hook-and-loop adjustable cuffs and a drawcord hem seal out drafts.
  • Water-resistant YKK Aquaguard Vislon zip has an internal stormflap.
  • 2 zippered chest pockets and an internal pocket that doubles as a stuff sack.
