It has enough room inside for an extra layer for colder weather conditions and the hood is helmet compatible. A popular feature is an incredibly low weight for such a weather proof piece of kit. You can search the world for the best climbs and you might just find yourself back at Ben Nevis with its myriad of north face technical routes. That's why 'The North Face' chose Point Five Gulley of the UK’s highest mountain to give this 3-layer Gore-Tex® Pro shell its name. If you are going out in difficult conditions (that'll be Scotland then) pursuing classic alpine style adventures this is perfect for you. Keeping you dry in the fiercest storm and fresh in the most rigorous activity it's true beauty lies in its simplicity.
Breathable fabrics like Gore-Tex always work best when used in conjunction with a quality base layer to wick moisture away from your skin.
