Description

Show Description

Built for flash storms on mountain routes or steady rain on hiking trails, the Alpine Go is a versatile jacket that's both packable and waterproof. Generous underarm zips give you plenty of ventilation when the elevation gain starts to get intense. And if the wind picks up along the ridge, the drawcord-cinch hem and hook-and-loop cuff adjustments won’t let any drafts creep in.

  • Lightweight and supple 2.5-layer GORE-TEX® PACLITE® fabric is breathable and exceptionally waterproof.
  • DWR finish, fully sealed seams and water-resistant zippers keep rain from sneaking in.
  • Adjustable hood with pre-curved brim is helmet compatible.
  • Pit zips let you exhaust heat when slogging uphill.
  • Handwarmer pockets and a zippered internal chest pocket.
  • Drawcord-cinch hem and hook-and-loop cuff adjustments seal out the wind.

Fabric waterproof rating

The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.

20,000mm
Waterproofness

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

Waterproof with fully taped seams
Fabric active breathability

The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.

Windproofness

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.

Windproof
Length Hip-length
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.
