Show Description

Not one to be fooled by bluebird skies when you set out, you throw in your shell, a hat, and emergency chocolate for the last windy, shaded belay high on the route. This jacket is super-light and compressible, and small enough to be stuffed and clipped to your harness. High levels of wind and water protection coupled with excellent breathability and tear-resistance make this a great emergency piece on lightweight adventures.

  • Diamond Fuse ripstop technology is 5x more tear-resistant than the previous Helium.
  • Adjustable hood fits over a helmet and won't impede vision.
  • Zippered chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack and has a carabiner loop.
  • YKK® AquaGuard zippers keep water out.
  • Elastic cuffs and drawcord hem keep out wind.

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.
