Voted in one of the top four belay jackets of 06 by Climbing Magezine.
This jacket is a versatile primaloft insulated outer shell/summit/belay jacket
The Loki system-
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.
