This protective shell jacket is made for ski touring but works excellent for mid to high-intensity activities ranging from trekking to lightweight mountaineering.
It’s made in premium GORE-TEX® fabric, and we use this because it’s the world-leading quality for durable waterproofness (28,000mm), breathability (RET less than 4), and total windproofness.
The jacket blends two GORE-TEX® technologies: The front and underarm area are in Active SHAKEDRY. This technology eliminates the face fabric, preventing water absorption to maintain comfort during high-intensity activities. As a result, wearers will not experience the chilling effect caused by a wetted-out face fabric, and the garment dries out fast.
The hood, shoulders, upper arms, and bottom hem are in 30D GORE-TEX® Active recycled nylon fabric built for extreme breathability and ideal for highly aerobic, done-in-a-day activities. Together, they offer excellent water protection with marked leading breathability.
Key features include: A helmet-compatible hood with one-hand cord adjustment, two chest pockets, a small inside chest pocket, lightweight hand gaiters, and asymmetric cuffs with Velcro® tightening. To provide optimal venting, it has a zipped front solution with a full-length venting area running from the chest and down to the hem, enabling airflow while keeping your neck and face protected.
The jacket has a technical fit with a Y-cut and articulated arms for good alpine movement.

The excellent balance of protection and comfort allows the wearer to leave the garment on – rain or shine.
