For constant and extended exposure to the worst possible conditions, our Super Alpine Jackets provide trusted protection in a light, nimble package rich with features critical to the habitual mountain user.
In the big mountains, bombproof weather protection can help you keep it together while everything else is falling apart. The Super Alpine Jacket protects against the worst possible conditions with the best available waterproof/breathable and windproof fabrics. It features a light-yet-durable 3-layer nylon new generation GORE-TEX® Pro fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, key-area reinforcements and a technical fit with a slim torso. The two harness-compatible handwarmer pockets have a single-pleat design that lets you see your feet but also allows the pockets to expand without bulky seams. Trim, watertight zippers for the pockets and pit-zips are laminated in place to reduce weight and bulk; a small internal zippered chest pocket stows small valuables. The underarm gussets keep the jacket in place when you lift your arms, and the streamlined Gasket Dry Cuffs seal out the elements at the wrists. Our adjustable, helmet-compatible Optimal Visibility Hood™ has a laminated visor and the sleek Touch Point System™ embedded cord locks (in the hood and hem) allow for easy adjustment without opening the jacket.

"GORE-TEX Pro products have a 3-layer construction that comprises a special high performance GORE-TEX membrane, bonded to a tough outer material and a specially developed robust inner lining. The benefit: no movement between the three layers for exceptional durability and the option of combining the layers with insulation.
The GORE-TEX® membrane has 9 billion pores per square inch, with each pore 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet. These tiny holes are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside. But these same pores are large enough for moisture vapor to pass through, so your body's perspiration is able to escape and you won’t feel clammy or uncomfortable inside your jacket."
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
