The Outdoor Research Men's Axiom Jacket is a storm shell for alpine climbing and skiing. When the rain, sleet, snow and wind are factors in your climbing day, the Axiom steps up with Gore-Tex Active 3L fabric to protect your upper half. The Active fabric is the most breathable waterproof fabric in the Gore-Tex line, making it ideal for high-output activities. The jacket also has a bit of stretch in it so you can move and reach freely to the next hold. The hood is helmet-compatible and adjusts so you won’t lose peripheral vision. The dual hand pockets zipper shut to secure a pair of liner gloves while staying up and out of the way of your harness. The left hand pocket also doubles as a stuff sack for packing away on bright, sunny days.
