Perfect jacket for Winter climbs!I've now taken this jacket on Shasta and even into the Inside Passage of Alaska! The durability of this jacket withstands a good hour of rain, while doing hard climbing and not wanting to put on a hard-shell.,,This was a perfect jacket for a skin up Shasta's Casaval Ridge and a ski-decent with howling winds!

My new favortiteGreat jacket. Sizing is as expected. Great alone or under a shell. It is a light but warm fleece. It does not bind at all -- I can't wait to use it ice climbing as soon as winter shows up!

My first purchase of Black Diamond productI'm not disappointed with my first purchase of Black Diamond, warm and a good mid layer.
How does this solution jacket compare to their "coefficient" fleece product line? Thanks!
Asked by: JTaylor
Thanks for reaching out to us! Unlike Black Diamond's Solution Jacket, their Coefficient version has double the elastane making it feel smoother and giving it a little more stretch. It also weighs less.
