The Women's Powder Lite Hybrid Jacket is a lightweight, warm and highly versatile jacket with a water and stain resistant barrier on the outer shell, keeping you clean and protected.
Hit the hills with confidence in a sleek light hooded jacket designed to smooth your every move. It comes in the perfect lightweight material for added warmth in your spring time adventures, while zippered pockets and a drawcord waist keep everything where it belongs.
This item is compatible with the UTMB® Mandatory Kit.
The women's Columbia Powder Lite Hybrid Hooded Jacket is not as warm at the original Powder Lite range as it has less insulation and doesn't feature the Omni-Heat lining. Instead it's designed to be a lighter, more compact and stretchy jacket for use as a throw on active layer in spring.
The outer has been treated to resists light rain and stains, keeping you clean and protected and the sides and underarms have been replaced with stretchy paneling for improved breathability and movement. They have used their own Thermarator insulation but not loads of it so it's still warm but not warm enough to use as a main layer in winter, which is not what it's designed for anyway.
Overall a lightweight and highly packable jacket with a good warmth to weight ratio.
