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 A great piece of protection When my Hoody arrived I thought the box was empty. This is one light shell. I purchased it for spring skiing, climbing and mountain biking. I have been impressed by its balance of wind resistance and how well it breathes. As for long term durability I cannot comment. The only reason for 4 stars is the sizing. I'm 5'9" with the torso of someone much taller. If I'd bought a medium like other reviews recommended I'd be in a half jacket. The large is on the verge of being to short for my liking. Other than that it's been an amazing jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from could be the best windshirt on the market I own several windshirts, but my Alpine Start is the one that gets the nod most often. Foremost it blends breathability (roughly 35 cfm) and water resistance (roughly a HH of 300) about perfectly. And while I have lighter windshirts, the Schoeller material is more robust and an advantage in rougher terrain. I like the athletic fit and adjustable hem and hood. I use a windshirt in all four seasons and the Alpine Start sees the majority of that use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must This beauty is an integral part of my winter setup. I wear it every single day I go outside. (Being a ski guide, this is almost every day...) It goes right after my base layers, just before my insulation. Throughout the day, I can remove as much layer as I need, I always have this perfect windproof softshell. I also wear it the rest of the year... A must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lughtweight Jacket Out There This is actually my second alpine start jacket - sadly my first on was left in a hotel room somewhere. Hopefully somebody else loves that one as much as i did. Light weight, water resistent and packs down to fit in the snallest pockets. Cant go wrong for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a myriad of uses I have used this as a wind shirt (light precip too) for climbing, biking, dirt biking, rafting, etc. This is truly a pretty versatile shell and super durable fr how light weight it is.
