New for 2014! Highly abrasion-resistant and water-resistant (not waterproof), the Black Diamond Alpine Start Hoody is constructed of a stretch-woven fabric that also grants ease of motion for climbing, backpacking, skiing or other backcountry pursuits. A streamlined profile also allows it to function as a performance mid-layer in colder weather.
Lightweight, breathable Schoeller fabrication knocks down wind and rain without bogging you down or making you overheat. It also makes the Alpine Start Hoody packable enough to stuff in its chest pocket for easy storage. An internal carabiner loop even lets clip it directly to your pack.
An attached hood is big enough to accommodate a helmet but also cinches down for a comfortable, adjustable fit when you aren’t using a helmet. Clean elastic cuffs and a drawcord hem further ensure a comfortable fit.
The Alpine Start Hoody has a tapered, athletic fit that enables it to fit well beneath heavier, warmer outerwear pieces.
The Blak Diamond Alpine Start Hoody is available in your choice of size and color.
