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.


Ready for flash storms on the trail, the packable Flash Cloud jacket is ready to be deployed at a moment's notice. The waterproof Gore-Tex PacLite Plus construction is highly breathable and light, so you won't overheat on steep sections. A drawcord-cinch hem and hook-and-loop cuff adjustments keep drafts out when the wind picks up, and a Recco reflector in the hood adds some peace of mind when traveling in avalanche country.

  • Lightweight and extremely compressible 2.5-layer GORE-TEX® PACLITE® PLUS fabric is breathable and exceptionally waterproof
  • DWR finish, fully sealed seams and water-resistant zippers keep rain from sneaking in
  • Adjustable hood with pre-curved brim
  • Chin guard prevents chafing
  • Pit zips let you exhaust heat when slogging uphill
  • Hand pockets have water-resistant zippers and zipper garages
  • Hook-and-loop cuff tabs
  • Drawcord-cinch hem and hook-and-loop cuff adjustments seal out the wind
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to detect and locate it under snow. Recco tech is not a substitute for avalanche skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry
