The age-old puzzle of the high alpine’s unpredictable weather is finally solved by the Black Diamond Access Hoody, which gives you the ultimate in packable protection. Constructed from a Pertex outer and body-mapped, migration-resistant PrimaLoft Gold Insulation, it marries durability that can handle the beatings that the mountains dish out with a trim profile for full packability. With gusseted, breathable underarms designed with Schoeller and a smaller concentration of insulation, you’ll be able to work through high-output pursuits without swapping layers. An elastic, climbing-helmet-compatible hood and a pocket that packs the jacket and clips to your harness give the Access Hoody complete versatility.

Access Hoody is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket!!!! I'm a skier, live at a mountain pass at 3000' in the Cascades and ski in/out of bounds most days. I layer with a shirt, a fleece, then this jacket, and finally my water proof layer. I'm really impressed with this hoody. It's just the right amount of warmth, wind proof, and very water resistant. Most days when snowing, I never get to my water proof layer, even with higher winds driving the snow. I've been in snow rain mix and didn't get wet after a couple hours of skiing. The hood is generous for helmets, the pockets are large. The only thing I would like to see is a exterior chest pocket. Highly recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight warmth and comfort I’ve now had this jacket for a month and I’ve been loving it so far. Access Hoody is a very lightweight option for cool mornings or activities in the colder temperatures. The jacket has a very nice close to body fit. The jacket has been designed for an active user and has very high mobility. Love the synthetic fill which allows me to keep warm and comfortable even when the jacket gets wet. Highly recommend this piece for those who are looking for a bit of added warmth when doing something active. It can also be worn as a layer underneath a hard shell due to its great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect lightweight puffy For those curious, this is pretty comparable in warmth and packability to a Patagonia Nano Puff Hoody, and is actually a touch lighter. This jacket is an enormous improvement over the old version with softshell underarm panels, called the Access Hybrid. There are some breathable panels under the arms still, but I don't notice any loss of warmth like before. It's warm, is fairly form-fitting, and packs into its own pocket and clips to your harness. What's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have jacket for me I bought this originally with skiing in mind, but one day decided to wear it for a cold (think below zero F) winter run. Turns out it is the only insulating layer I've tried that has kept me warm AND breathed appropriately so as to not turn my torso into soup (which of course brings on problems). So now this is my running insulation layer in winter. Say it is zero degrees F, I wear a wool baselayer, this jacket, and then a lightweight running shell on top. Perfection. I'm afraid I probably won't be able to wear a different piece of insulation on my winter runs again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly perfect 3-season belay hoody I've been looking everywhere for a 3-season belay hoody, and it has bee surprisingly hard to find all the right features on the same, light, packable, jacket. BD got this one right, right down to putting the chest pocket inside the jacket, and excluding draw-strings. My only complaint is the cut, and sizing. I'm 6'1" and 185lbs with an athletic build. I'm a medium in most Athletic-cut jackets, with some room for a few layers, but in straiter-cut jackets, like the Access Hoody, A medium is too tight in the chest and lat

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice comfy jacket for the colder activites I bought this for a spring skiing trip and I have to say I love the jacket, wear it all the time. It's a bit long in the torso for me (5'10", 175lbs) but at least the 2 way zipper alleviates the issue. Otherwise it fits great, is not too tight, and the sleeves are long enough and not too snug. I use it mainly for back country skiing and general kicking around, as it's nice and warm and layers well. I wouldn't recommend it for climbing as the length would interfere with a harness, but it seems to excel in all other areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Light Insulation Piece 5'8" 155lbs, athletic build and a Medium fits perfectly. Dries quickly. Weighs almost nothing but is suprislingly warm and offers great wind resistance. I have used it mountaneering and climbing in frigid conditions in New Hampshire as a layering piece combined with fleece, baselayers, and a hardshell. Hood accommodates a climbing helmet. Trim fit works well under a shell. Always preferred synthetics vs. down as midlayers because of a synethetic's ability to work while wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm for the Weight This is a great layer for ski touring and alpine climbing, particulary for long day pushes. It is lightweight and warm. The fit felt spot on (Medium, I'm 5'10" and 165 lbs). Primaloft construction seems to be very effective in this product. It would also be a great crag jacket for bouldering or sport climbing in cooler months as it offers good wind protection as well. A good addition/substitute for older layers to lighten up the pack.
