Black Diamond Stance Belay Parka - Men's



Show Description

This insulated layer is the one to take for extremely cold climbing days. It's über-warm, but still lean enough to be layered under a shell jacket if conditions demand you hunker down and wait out a squall. The adjustable hood fits over your helmet without making you feel constricted. And stretch gussets on the cuffs allow you to reach without exposing your wrists to the elements.

  • Face fabric is 40-denier nylon treated with a DWR finish for water resistance
  • Insulated with 180g ThermoLite synthetic insulation that retains warmth even when wet.
  • Adjustable hood works with or without a helmet.
  • 2-way front zipper.
  • Ample pockets: 2 zippered chest pockets, 2 zippered handwarmer pockets, 1 internal stretch pocket with cord port, 2 internal drop-in pockets.
  • Stretch gusset cuffs are low-profile to slot easily under your gloves.
  • Drawcord hem can be pulled close to keep out wind.

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.
