Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.

Description

Lightweight and packable for wet climates or where you expect foul weather. The waterproof Pertex Shield is breathable so you don't overheat on long approaches. Nylon fabric is durable, and feels soft and supple, never crunchy. A helmet-compatible hood and pockets that sit above a hipbelt or harness make it ideal for alpine missions and backcountry trips. Best of all, we’ve kept it amazingly affordable so you can budget for longer climbing trips and extra days on the trail.
