Alpinist Hard Shell Jacket
You have requested and we have listened. We are happy to re-release what Backpacker Magazine once called a "breathable fortress". The Alpinist Hard Shell Jacket is designed for fast movement and versatility. Utilizing the same fit from our Hard Shell FR-GT that gets rave reviews, these shells are light, packable, and more than equal to the demands of today’s operator.
The new 30 denier 3 layer GORE Military fabric provides an optimum combination of durable waterproofness and comfort. This new fabric package, characterized as Light & Fast by Gore, is more breathable and more capable of managing moisture and condensation near the body.
Features include an adjustable helmet-compatible hood, adjustable hem with hidden drawcord, two waterproof chest pockets, and fleece chin guard. Extended pit-zips (rib-zips) allow for maximum ventilation and access to mid-layer pockets.
