There has been a buzz around the office about Black Diamond's foray into outerwear. For years they've been putting out top quality gear for high alpine excursions, snowsports, climbing, and camping. Basically, if you are going out in the elements or directly up a rockface then Black Diamond has you covered. Now, with their new line of outerwear, they will literally have you covered. The Access Hybrid Hoody is a technical insulating layer that uses strategic material mapping to maximize warmth-to-weight and mobility. Synthetic PrimaLoft layered under DWR treated ripstop nylon will keep you warm up on the mountain while resisting the elements. StretchWoven side panels allow for unhindered scree scrambling. Scrambled scree sounds like a terrible breakfast.

Rated 5 out of
Exactly what I was hoping forNote: I literally just got this in the mail so I haven't put it through any tests yet.,,,,I was a bit skeptical of this jacket because there are certain fabrics that my skin doesn't react to very well and the pictures for this item made me think that's what I was getting. Consdiering it was a great deal and had the features I was intersted in, I decided to take a chance. Glad I did too, because the product is just what I was looking for. ,,,,The outter shell is soft and glossy with the exception of the parts that have the Schoeller material, which is more rough. The jacket is super lightweight, meaning I can have this on me and not even notice it. You can feel a small layer of Primaloft through the jacket which is comforting. This jacket is literally everything I wanted.,,,,My biggest question is about how durable it is under a small amount of rain. Will report back after a few uses.
