Black Diamond Alpine Start Hooded Jacket - Women's


Product Details

Going light is good, but going naked is bad, so split the difference with the Black Diamond Alpine Start Women's Hooded Jacket. At under seven ounces, it doesn't weigh much more than nothing, but it offers the wind-blocking protection of Schoeller softshell fabric, so you don't have to expose any bare skin to the elements when you're hitting the skin track or starting the approach at 4 a. m. The fabric sports a NanoSphere coating that repels water, dirt, and oil so you can move through showers and avoid disastrous dinner spills, and the underarms rock climbing-specific gussets allow you to make those big moves without having to de-layer. Needless to say, the low-profile hood is designed to work with helmets, the elastic cuffs and drawcord hem keep drafts out, and the self-stowing internal pocket easily stashes your jacket and clips to your harness for easy access when you're lining up a ten pitcher.

Price : $149

Fleece Jacket Checklist

Say "No" to Cotton: If you take cotton in the Montana backcountry...you'll be sorry sooner or later.
Pull-Over or Zip-Up? Both are popular and widely available. Make sure you get the right style for your own needs.
Snug Around the Neck? Some people like it...other's don't. But snugness helps keep the cold from seeping in. So it's a feature worth examining.
Pockets? Some fleece has tons of pockets, others none whatsoever. So check the specs before plunking down any money.
