Product Description

The Carbon is a fully taped Gore-tex Paclite shell with basic features like armpit zippers and a roll-up hood. It's heavier and more durable than other jackets, so it can easily crossover into winter use, but the soft outer fabric isn't bulky like some four season shells. The ample cut fits over puffy winter layers as well.


# Made with GORE-TEX® Paclite® fabric that provides the lightest most waterproof/breathable protection available.
# Fully seam sealed to keep out rain and moisture.
# Front zip closure with a Merrell logo zipper pull and an internal storm placket to keep out the elements.
# The collar holds a contoured pack away hood that stays out of your way and maximizes protection.
# The hood contains a one-handed drawcord for easy adjustability.
# Adjustable hook and loop tab cuffs for a custom fit.
# Two waterproof laser cut hand pockets with zip closure.
# Waterproof pit zips provide ample temperature regulation.
# Tonal hex print at the back.
# Adjustable hem with locking toggle drawcords for quick convenience.
# Fabric: 100% polyester.
# Machine wash cold, tumble dry low.
# Product measurements were taken using size MD. Please note that measurements may vary by size.

Great jacket
I have used this in very cold, snowy, and windy condition on top of Mt. Washington. It held up great and I couldn't even feel the cold wind on my body. I have also used this on Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood, where it did a perfect job of keeping me dry, warm, and the wind out.

When I used it as rain gear for backpacking it worked great. I have worn it in pouring rain and not even having one drop get through, while still being very breathable. I would give this jacket an A+ for Wilderness Usage.
