  • Garment seams are positioned away from where your backpack or harness sit.
  • UPF 50 protect you from sun exposure during long days on snowfields or rockfaces.
  • Low profile hood fits comfortably under a climbing helmet.
  • YKK® Vislon zipper closes smoothly on the front.
  • 2 zippered chest pockets keep personal items handy.
