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.

The barrier is porous enough to allow body heat to escape, without allowing water from the outside in. These fabrics are very durable.
