Springtime in Rocky Mountain National Park brings a reprieve from the mean winds of winter, but something else soon shows up: wet snow. Our Piolet Jacket is unshaken. It protects, moves and breathes with a 2-layer nylon waterproof/breathable and windproof GORE-TEX fabric that uses a DWR (strong water repellent) finish. The hanging lining gives terrific comfort, the helmet-compatible, 2-way adjustable hood has a laminated visor for optimal visibility, and the Touch Point System embedded cord locks in the hood and hem allow fast adjustment without opening the jacket. Finer details include a 2-way, center-front zipper, extremely low-bulk, watertight, coated zippers on the pit zips and three outside pockets (the jacket also has an internal zippered security pocket), low-profile cuff closures and full-reach gusseted underarm panels fo rmovements.
