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.
