Description

Show Description

Sandbagged by an abrupt change in the weather? Whip this super-light technical jacket out of your pack or unclip it from your harness and slide it on. The close cut and elastic quilting underarm panels keep the outline lean and eliminate air spaces. The fit promotes dynamic movement and allows long reaches so you can escape the route before the weather fully shuts you down. A DWR-treated shell and synthetic insulation stand up to dampness and shed light precip.

  • 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.
  • Adjustable hood fits over a climbing helmet.
  • Full-length front zipper.
  • Zippered handwarmer pockets.
  • Elastic trim at the wrists and a drawcord hem help trap heat.
  • Jacket 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.

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 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.
