Description

Built to help you pare back your kit on remote multi-day expeditions, it’s the perfect all-round waterproof shell for hikers, climbers and mountaineers. It uses recycled Stretch Knit Proflex™ fabric with a breathable waterproof membrane and a fast-wicking backer to shift moisture fast during high-energy ascents. It also uses Stretch Nylon Woven Proflex™ panels in the hip, arm, shoulders and hood to cope with the abrasion and exposure of tough, technical climbs.

Designed with a closer fit than a traditional shell, its flexible dual-fabric construction is combined with a range of high-spec features. For all-day dryness, comfort and mobility, they include a helmet-compatible hood, water-resistant AquaGuard zips and easy adjustment at the hood, hem and cuffs. Tough but flexible, waterproof but breathable, this is the ultimate ‘soft’ hardshell for committed alpine adventure.

Proflex™ Fabric

Feels like a softshell, protects like a hardshell. Proflex™ is our own waterproof membrane offering outstanding comfort at high intensities and in wild weather. Developed to offer stretch and exceptional breathability, the Proflex™ PU membrane has natural elasticity. It works in harmony with recycled knitted or woven fabrics to maintain this stretch and achieve a lightweight, soft, and flexible 3-layer waterproof fabric. The inner fabrics of Proflex™ laminates have excellent wicking properties. They work with the hydrophilic membrane to accelerate the process of moisture movement away from the body and out through the system. A DWR treatment on the face fabric keeps the membrane functioning at its best.
