Ultralight and incredibly versatile, the Alpine Start Jacket uses Scchoeller® stretch-woven softshell fabric to provide highly breathable, weather resistant protection for alpinists and adventurers. Gusseted construction allows complete freedom of movement while climbing or running in the mountains, and the highly packable design stows in its own chest pocket when not in use. A carabiner loop lets you clip it to your harness or pack to take with you on missions.
The Alpine Start Jacket is an ultralight stretch wind layer, designed to shield the fast moving climber against ridgeline gusts and alpine weather. Black Diamond's lightest weight softshell, the ultra-packable design incorporates a self-stowing, external chest pocket for easy storage on your harness or in your pack.
