This awesome women's jacket has a great shape and tough exterior to cope with rock climbing and Alpine mountaineering adventures when carrying heavy loads. Constructed from a one piece FuseForm outer shell which has the ability to allow for different tear strength within the fabric in a waterproof and breathable 2.5 HyVent layer. This jacket has a helmet compatible hood with laminated brim and adjusts easily with a single pull. Also to make life easier when trying to keep attached to the rock and rummaging through pockets, they have been situated a bit higher so as not to interfere with your harness and equipment. With abrasion resistant zones in critical areas, this reduces the overall weight but provides all the strength you need when exposed and battling the elements.
