Spring flings for the alpinist: predawn turns, shaded verglas corners and high alpine storms. The Stretch Latitude's unwavering waterproof/breathable performance pairs with stretch reinforcements to keep you going in all conditions, while its soft interior glides over layers and wicks moisture. A helmet-compatible, 3-way-adjustable hood protects without hindering your vision, and the front water-resistant zipper has a brushed, offset chin to offset chafing. Other details include low-profile pit zips, an internal storage pocket, a zippered chest pocket and zippered handwarmer pockets that stay clear of a harness. Regular fit.

Material 3-layer fabrics are waterproof/breathable by virtue of an advanced combination of shell fabric, waterproof barrier and interior fabric that are laminated together. The barrier is porous enough to allow body heat to escape, without allowing water from the outside in. These fabrics are very durable.
