Kyan­ite Jacket

This highly an­tic­i­pated hel­met is one of the first that gives pro­tec­tion against front, rear and lat­eral im­pacts. De­spite the ex­tra pro­tec­tion, it is still con­sid­ered light­weight and well ven­ti­lated. It’s a rugged and ver­sa­tile hel­met, which is great for new sport climbers and climbers hop­ing for an ev­ery­thing-in-one hel­met. Highly rec­om­mended. Shoul­der sea­son sport climb­ing re­quires you to bring mul­ti­ple lay­ers and the Kyan­ite is a top choice for a mid­layer or a stand­alone. It’s one of the stretchi­est jack­ets on the mar­ket, which makes it good for big on-route moves. The high­tec fab­ric makes it durable for long crag days and the trim fit snugs it in close to the body. This up­dated-for-2018 Hirun­dos will be many sport climber’s num­ber one pick this year. It’s more com­fort­able than the al­ready-comfy outof-pro­duc­tion Hirun­dos that many crag dwellers had come to love. It fea­tures elas­ti­cized leg loops the give you a great range of mo­tion. It has four gear loops which give am­ple room for a rack of draws and an­chor ma­te­rial.
