The perfect compromise between blizzard in the forecast and first chill of fall, this multi-functional softshell works hard and plays even harder.

The ascender’s windproof omni-shield fabric breathes and wicks moisture while creating a water-repellent force field between you and precipitation. Tighten the hem to keep out cold drafts with the adjustable drawcord and warm your digits in the zip-closed hand pockets. A supple tricot lining delivers an added dose of cozy comfort.

  • Wind/water resistant softshell fabric

Isn’t that the point of a Jacket? To keep you warm?” You ask.Not really. I don’t get cold very easily, I make an absurd amount of body heat, and if it isn’t windy, a very light fleece, a hat, and some running…
