YOU KNOW THE FEELING. The sun hasn’t yet come up, or maybe it set long ago, and the dew on the branches catches light from your headlamp’s beam as you move silently past. Your cheeks are cold, the dark air turning them red, and the tip of your nose tingles. But despite the brisk air, you’re warm, making your own heat as you move up, up, up.

Black Diamond's First Light Hoody was conceptualized from missions like these, born from early mornings and late evenings questing up granite slabs in the fall and floating through milky powder in the winter. The First Light Hoody becomes like a cocoon for its wearer, thanks to a breakthrough construction that allows the jacket to breathe in and out.





The result is a piece that’s with you through it all, from sweaty ascents followed by breezy traverses to extended belays.
