This jacket softshell-like comfort and excellent weather resistance. It's a lightweight version of a hardshell, bringing many of the benefits (waterproofing, wind-proofing, and snow-sloughing) without the extra weight. Unlike a hardshell, it is highly breathable, making it a great option for ski touring, hiking, trail running, and mountain biking.
The 3-layer AscentShell material is stretchy and soft but also burly and durable.
This jacket has been work about 10 times. There is a small tear that's been repaired (see photo): this jacket isn't great for wearing when swinging around ice axes.
Item will ship USPS Priority, with tracking and insurance.
