The Black Diamond Men's Alpine Start Hoody is a softshell jacket for alpine climbs, early mornings, and light weather protection. The Schoeller® fabric is stretch woven with NanoSphere® technology, which means it stretches and follows your every move while still providing light weather resistance. A little wind up on the crag or a light rain as you're scrambling down to reach your car by sundown are quickly tossed to the side by this lightweight jacket. At only 8.8 ounces, it tucks right into the chest pocket when the weather is sunny and warm, allowing you to clip it to your harness for later. The helmet compatible hood is adjustable and always ready to keep moisture and wind off your neck and the precious hairs atop your head.
Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.
