Description

Show Description

Sandbagged by a sudden weather change? Layer on this vest for some welcome core warmth. The close cut is enhanced by elasticized quilt lines in the underarm panel that eliminate air spaces and allow dynamic motion. The treated shell and synthetic insulation cope well with mildly damp conditions. Great as a skiing layer or a little temperature insurance in your climbing pack.

  • Fabric is lightweight 20-denier ripstop polyester with DWR.
  • Synthetic insulation retains warmth when wet. Fibres are locked in place with sewn-through quilting.
  • Elastic thread in the underarm panels gives you range of motion without compromising insulating power.
  • Fleece-lined chin guard and high collar.
  • Raglan style shoulders and elastic edge binding at arm holes keeps you free to move while still retaining heat.
  • Zippered handwarmer pockets.
  • Elastic trim at the wrists and a drawcord hem help trap heat.
  • Vest folds into its external chest pocket. The bartacked loop lets it double as stuff sack. Small enough to fit on a harness or in the lid of your pack.

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.

  • 2 handwarmer

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.

Wind-resistant
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.
