Hood can be worn with a helmet. Two-way zipper for easy access to harness.
This mountaineering jacket was approved in a shower test under 100 L of water/m²/hour for 3 hours.
This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
To determine a fabric’s breathability, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 Standard). The lower the fabric’s resistance, the more water vapour generated by an active body evaporates, the higher the fabric’s breathability.
We consider that:
- RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric.
- 9 < RET < 12 = breathable fabric.
- RET > 12 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
This mountaineering jacket has a RET between 9 and 12.
The taped zipper under the arms helps create airflow to improve ventilation.
The adjustments at the hem (elastic drawstring and toggle) and cuffs (hook and loop tabs) let you tailor the airflow in these areas.
The pockets are positioned to be used as hand warmers and to be accessible when wearing a harness over the jacket. The jacket also has a chest pocket and an inner zippered pocket.
The main zipper offers the same waterproofing as a classic silicone zipper (similar to those on pockets) with increased flexibility, which makes the jacket easy to compress when stored. Plus, this zipper is easier to handle, which helps make it longer lasting. The two-way zipper allows you to use a harness under the jacket. The zipper pulls are easy to use with gloves.
The hood is large enough to wear over a mountaineering helmet. Its height and depth are adjustable to suit your needs. A semi-rigid visor offers better forehead and eye protection. The high collar provides protection for the lower part of your face.
