An ultra-lightweight, minimalistic, waterproof hardshell jacket which focuses on the essentials without compromising on functionality and comfort. Great for summer climbing on Rainier or the North Cascades.
The 2.5 layer construction provides the protection of a hardshell and the lightness and breathability of a windbreaker. The jacket's interior features scuff resistance for the membrane underneath and feels comfortable on your skin thanks to its quick moisture wicking. Tiny, integrated beads (micro beads) in the structure mean that moisture can be more quickly absorbed and released to the membrane. This ensure the material does not feel sticky or wet, but dry against the skin.
Features such as the elastic waist and the chest pocket make the jacket even more functional: The jacket can be completely stored in the inner pocket and, thanks to the loop on the inside, can be quickly fastened to a climbing harness or compressed to save space and stored in a backpack. In addition, this jacket is equipped with a self-regulating hood. A circumferential elastic band and a reinforced peak ensure an optimum fit in wind and rain, while discreet MERINO COOL inserts increase wear comfort around the chin and forehead area. The elastic cuffs and the elastic seam prevent any unwanted wind and moisture penetrating.

But sometimes this dream can seem daunting. If you’re […]
