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 Perfect Lightweight layer I bought this to climb Mount Rainier in July and it was the perfect layer. It was warm outside and when moving but the wind was blowing so this was the perfect layer to protect me against the wind but not get me to hot. The hood fit nicely over my helmet and was great in my layering system. 4 stars because I am 6'4" and wish it was a tad longer on waist but not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wear it for everything. This jacket is one of my favorite pieces in my gear locker. This jacket has essentially replaced my Gortex shell for most of my endevours. I can wear it over a t-shirt for the summer mornings when its just slightly cool. I can wear it over a breathable insulation piece to make it wind proof and highly water resistent(I dont really do long rain showers being in Southern California). I wear it for work, I wear it for play. In fact I'm wearing it as I type this review, sitting at my desk with a t-shirt on in the cold A/C(not everythign is extreme) and I feel extremely comfortable. The material is very quiet and doest have that normal Gortex swishing annoyance. I can also attest to the material durability as well, because this is my second jacket. The first one was damaged 1 week after getting it, however, it held up extremely well to what happened. Long story short, I ended up sliding across the concrete bike path on my back/side for approximately 15-20ft while traveling about 20mph. The jacket was abraded and a couple small holes on the arm, but I totally repaired it with some patches and that is the one I use for when I'm at work doing rope access or other stuff. If the temp is south of 73 degrees you can bet your money I have this jacket on. If I had to list something negative about the jacket, I guess...sometimes I do go to put something in my pocket and there arent normal hand pockets, but that goes with the territory and would just add bulk to the piece. So. There you go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket I bought thisfor a climbing trip in Alaska-worked amazing blacked raain and provided warmth

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.
