Constructed with new Polartec® Power Shield® Pro this jacket offers unrivaled breathability during periods of high exertion as well as abrasion resistance in rugged terrain and durable water resistance in adverse weather conditions.
Features include: alpine fit; fully adjustable fixed hood; non-abrasive molded cuff tabs and hideaway hem cinch cord.
Engineered to help keep athletes moving through the most challenging of weathers, the Men's Kishtwar Jacket is the ultimate soft shell. It's constructed using Polartec® Power Shield® Pro, combining outstanding breathability with high levels of resistance to wind and water. It blocks 99% of the wind to prevent chill and repels rain and snow, yet enjoys exceptional air permeability to keep athletes cool as they clock up the miles. An abrasion-resistant face makes it highly durable too, shrugging off the bumps and scrapes inevitably encountered on challenging alpine assignments, and there's a good element of stretch for a comfy, secure fit. Other features on this Summit Series™ jacket include an adjustable fixed hood, hand and chest pockets and out-of-sight cinchcord.
