Peru's Inca Trail is unforgettable, and the weather's usually good -- usually. Thunderboomers can happen, and when they do, the lightweight but fully waterproof/breathable Supercell is like gold. The jacket's roll-down Optipull hood fits over a variety of ski/alpine helmets, and new perforated hook-and-loop closures are lighter, softer and more compressible. Elbow-to-waist pit zips on the handwarmer pockets vent the torso.
Fabric: 2.7-oz., 2.5-layer, 50-denier ripstop nylon with a waterproof H2No® HB (Highly Breathable) barrier; Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish. All seams are sealed.
Breathable, lightweight and waterproof, it packs down well and can serve as your bad weather back-up.
Use it for:
Interior surface texture channels moisture away from skin, protects the waterproof barrier from abrasion and slides easily over layers
