The stretch and comfort of a softshell with the protection of a hardshell. A combination of knitted and woven Proflex fabrics provide freedom of movement, stretch and protection for fast moving alpine ascents.
The Women’s Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Jacket is built light but versatile for alpinists who want to pare back the kit list on multi-day mountain adventures. It is constructed from recycled Stretch Knit Proflex™ fabric with exceptional breathability of 35,000g MVTR. That is bolstered with woven reinforcements at the lower arm for walking; at the cuff for climbing; and at the shoulder and hip for backpack straps and harnesses. Built to combine hardshell protection with softshell comfort, the inherent stretch of the fabric enables a closer cut than a traditional waterproof jacket. The cuffs, hem and helmet-compatible hood are also adjustable for tailored comfort and the large zipped pockets are elevated to stay clear of the harness zone.
With a brushed fleece chin guard and fully taped seams, this is a purist technical shell for mountaineers, climbers and hikers.
