Our most technical soft shell for full-on mountain pursuits strikes the alpinist's balance between protection and minimalism. The dense polyester-stretch doubleweave, with stitchless seams, has exceptional water- and wind-resistance, a rapid dry time and superb breathability. Pared-down detailing provides everything you need and nothing more: a helmet-compatible, 3-way-adjustable hood; water-resistant zippers; large external handwarmer pockets (with zipper garages) that are placed above the harness-line; an internal security pocket; articulated arms; supple die-cut cuff tabs and elastic at the wrists; a drawcord hem. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program..
