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.


Lightweight and packable, this fully seam-taped jacket is perfect for activity in wet climates or where you expect foul weather. The Hydrofoil Stretch Jacket's waterproof Pertex Shield construction is ridiculously breathable. 40-denier nylon promises durability and 4-way stretch that’s 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 hill.

  • Made of 40-denier nylon with a 2.5-layer Pertex Shield waterproof-breathable laminate
  • Fabric has built in 4-way mechanical stretch to move with you
  • Exterior is treated with a DWR (durable water repellency) finish to shed precipitation
  • Fully taped seams for maximum wet-weather protection
  • Fully adjustable hood with reinforced brim is helmet-compatible
  • Raglan sleeves for comfort under backpack straps

  • 2 zippered outer pockets are set high out of the way of a harness or hipbelt
  • Articulated elbows for good range of motion
  • Hook-and-loop–adjustable sleeve cuffs
  • Elastic drawcord at bottom hem
  • Cut for layering over light to mid-weight garments
  • Length provides extra coverage, and fit works for climbing
