Product Description

This is a light weight durable shell jacket made with 3 layer e-VENT


The Loki system-

-Integrated Mitt:
The mitts on this jacket, unnoticable until deployed, can be accessed quickly when times are chilly. (the begiining of a hike or time on the summit)
There is no constriction in the wrist area while the mitts are in use, allowing body heat to travel down the arm and into the hand area, super efficient.
Used in synch with a wind-proof glove liner in times when dexterity is needed and or colder temperatures are involved.
The mitts can also be used as a back up application, if gloves become wet or lost.

-Integrated face shield/neck gaiter:
The gaiter rests unnoticably in the hood area.
The hood can be used with or without the gaiter.
When gaiter is deployed, it can be used to cover neck only, or neck and face and the adjustable hood follows the head when looking in all directions providing excellent hooded visibility.
The gaiter does not wrap fully around the back of the neck, this allows for body heat to travel from the chest and back area to heat the face and head, efficient.
The hood has several adjustability options for optimium comfort and visibilty with or without helmet.

A zippered back pocket can be used to store a water bottle/bladder, food, and a layer.
When going for a summit bid and jacket is not neccesary at the moment, the back pocket can be flipped inside-out and used for storage of the jacket. two lightweight nylon adjustable straps are used for the shoulders, providing a small backpack with enough room inside for the jacket and the items mentioned above.
A lightweight dream!

rasgoatGreat piece!

Voted 5/5

I really cant say enough for this jacket!

The e-VENT works the way they say it does

The Loki system's function superceeds all other jacket designs.

I use this jacket in summer spring and fall and winter, it has everything you need at your fingertips without having to take up extra space in the backpack.

When I get cold (in the winter, summiting or belaying) I throw on an insulated Loki model. (insulation in the mitts too)
