Product Description Item No.   10301543

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Soft Shell This jacket is an excellent lightweight soft shell that provides protections from the elements that is needed in the alpine. I have used this shell on multiple alpine climbs including most recently MT Rainier. It has performed extremely well in high winds and snow, keeping me both dry and warm. Only draw back is that I would like it to have hand pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best This is my second purchase. I have another one in black I've owned for several years. Don't worry that one is fine, but I wanted something that wasn't black for summer glacier travel as this is my go to jacket. I wear it commuting by bike when it's kind of rainy or threatens to rain. I wear it over layers on mountains in the spring. I go get groceries in it. You see where this is going. I love this jacket and if I could have it in every new color they make.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight & Versatile Jacket The Alpine Start Hoody is an excellent jacket. It’s super lightweight, packs well, and is an ideal jacket for mild changes in weather. I’ve had the jacket for about 3 months and used it for running, hiking, urban adventures, light rain, etc., and it’s performed well. For sizing, a large (L) fits me well [I’m 6’02”, 190 lbs and have long arms]. I’d recommend an XL for anyone who is larger than me. Highly recommend. I rated the jacket as 4 starts only because some of the cuff fabric is fraying (see pic).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit - Super strecth I have used this jacket for rock climbing, mountain biking, trail running, fishing and hiking in the couple months that I have had it. Great jacket and super versatile. Lots of stretch and breathable. I am 6'1" and weigh 178 lbs and purchased a large. Fits well. Could've gotten a medium,. but I like it a little looser as I plan on throwing it over a lightweight down in the winter for fatbiking and ice climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Jacket This jacket is light, stretchy, and versatile. It is a relatively 'tight' fit and moves well with your body. Will repell light rain. Purchased this for alpine touring use and it already has become a popular choice for me to use in the shoulder seasons or in cooler temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light but durable I have not field tested this yet out a crag, but it is a great light windbreaker. You are able to stuff it in a pocket or bag (could easily clip on a harness). Water beads up right on it and it does a good job of protecting the skin from wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Starter Jacket This jacket is incredible. I have worn it while out in a wide range of temperatures from 20ies up to the 60ies. Seriously the jacket ventilation is top of the line and it doesn't even have any vents. It is water resistant to a certain point but not a full rain coat but will still help to keep you dry even under exertion. This jacket is perfect for those early morning runs or some serious ski mountaineering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Great Shell Bought this jacket after climbing with a guide buddy who wore one. Have had it for a year and a half, wearing it through at least 100 days of backcountry skiing and several mountain climbs. Even wore it for two weeks straight on trails, trains and in towns throughout northern Scotland. Don't know how many machine washings it's gone through, but it's still in good shape. I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs., a size medium fits well in the shoulders but the sleeves and hem are a bit long. I recently bought an Alpenglow Hoody in size small, this fits perfect. Would definitely recommend this jacket.
