Alpine dash essentials: rope, skeleton rack, M10 Jacket on your back. It's an alpine climbing jacket made for those who thrive on thin and technical climbs in full alpine conditions. A study in minimalism, and the lightest H2No® Performance Standard hard shell we make, the 3-layer waterproof/breathable M10 Jacket is a must-have for both our alpine and rock climbing ambassadors.
The soft, pliable waterproof/breathable nylon ripstop fabric yields surprising durability for its weight and protects against monsoon-season precip and summit ridge gusts. We've simplified the design, eliminated the pit-zips and handwarmer pockets -- our ambassadors didn't want 'em -- and gave it a single exterior zippered chest pocket that doubles as a stuffsack (with reinforced clip-in loop).
Details include sonically welded seams with the narrowest possible tape, watertight zippers, a microfleece-lined neck and chin and cuffs that adjust with minimalist hook-and-loop closures. A single pull adjusts the helmet-compatible hood (with laminated visor) and a drawcord hem blocks out spindrift backdraft. Slim fit for technical use over light-to-medium layers.
