Show Description

Stay warm on the way to the summit. Windproof and extremely water-resistant, the Impendor Soft Shell Jacket is built for long days in the alpine. Stretchy panels at the hips and under the arms let you move freely up the face and vent heat to keep you comfortable. High zippered pockets are easy to open when wearing a harness or backpack, while the helmet-compatible hood has a wire brim to keep snow out of your eyes.

  • Made of polyester softshell fabric.
  • Sleeve and hip panels are made of stretchy nylon and elastane for increased mobility and breathability.
  • Both fabrics have an internal bonded Windwall laminate for totally windproof and a Durable Water Repellecy finish for water resistance.
  • Adjustable hood is helmet-compatible and has a laminated wire brim so it won't droop into your eyes.
  • Zippered hand pockets are set high for compatibility with your harness or hipbelt.
  • Bonded, stretch-woven sleeve pocket holds small items.
  • Velcro® cuff tabs and adjustable hem seal out gusts.

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.
