This lightweight shell jacket is made for all-year mountaineering but works great for general outdoor activities all year, from trekking to ski touring. It’s very packable and therefore easy to always bring along.
The jacket is made in a premium GORE-TEX® fabric, and we use this because it is the world-leading membrane for durable waterproofness (28,000mm), optimized breathability (RET 6), and total windproofness.
This jacket is made in GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS fabric – a soft, lightweight (75/g m2) tiny ripstop fabric with a 20D recycled nylon face. It’s incredibly packable, thin, and lightweight while being waterproof, windproof, and offers excellent breathability. It has printed dots on the backer with a 3D function to keep distance to the body and create higher friction and a less sticky durable interior.
Key features include: A helmet-compatible hood with one-hand adjustment, cuffs with Velcro adjustments, an elastic bottom hem, a zippered chest pocket, and zippered front chest ventilation.
The jacket has a technical fit with a Y-cut and articulated arms for good movement while climbing. A longer cut in the back ensures extra protection. No seams on the shoulders to prevent chafing when wearing a backpack.
