Our lightest, most packable waterproof shell jacket.
This lightweight shell jacket is made for all-year mountaineering, but works great for general outdoor activities all year, from trekking to ski touring. It’s very packable and therefore easy to always bring along. We use A GORE-TEX® fabric, which is the world-leading membrane for durable waterproofness (28,000mm), optimized breathability (RET 3-6), and total windproofness.
This jacket is made in GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS fabric – a soft, lightweight (75/g m2) tiny rip-stop fabric with a 20D recycled nylon face. It’s extremely packable, thin, and lightweight while being waterproof, windproof, and offers excellent breathability. It has printed dots on the backer with a 3D function to keep distance to the body and create higher friction and a less sticky durable interior.
Main features include a helmet-compatible hood with one-hand adjustment, cuffs with Velcro® adjustments, an elastic bottom hem, a zippered chest pocket, and zippered front chest ventilation. The jacket has a technical fit with a Y-cut and articulated arms for good movement while climbing. A longer cut in the back ensures extra protection. No seams on the shoulders to prevent chafing when wearing a backpack.
