A super lightweight, lined windshirt for alpine pursuits; designed for use as a layering piece or an outer layer.
On high ridges, steep ice and anything alpine, our new Alpine Wind Jacket serves as a true "best of all worlds" staple. It excels as a stand-alone shell for blustery rock climbs, cool-weather trail runs and high-output ski tours. And then, when conditions have you ice and alpine climbing, it functions as a lightly insulated windshirt on the approach that doubles as a frictionless mid-layer when it's time to bundle up and tie-in. The polyester ripstop shell, with Deluge DWR treatment, sheds snow and blocks wind, while the smooth, lightly brushed hanging mesh liner wicks moisture, dries fast and doesn't bind to your baselayers. Superlight stretch-woven underarm panels enhance breathability and allow for unimpaired arm motion, and zippers close the three pockets (two hand, one chest). A drawcord hem, elastic cuffs, a heat-transfer reflective logo and regular coil, center-front zipper with DWR finish round out the features. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.
