Black Di­a­mond

Dawn Patrol Hy­brid Shell $368

Gripped - - THE RACK -

Black Di­a­mond’s en­try into the tech­ni­cal climb­ing shell mar­ket is the hy­brid fabr ic-con­struc­tion Dawn Patrol jacket. Like other com­pa­nies, Black Di­a­mond em­ploys a water­proof/breath­able fabr ic on the hood, shoul­ders and ar ms, and adds a stretch wo­ven ma­te­rial in the body for ex­cel­lent breatha­bil­ity. But un­like other com­pa­nies, Black Di­a­mond has cho­sen to use only fabr ics from the Swiss tex­tile leader, Schoeller – a com­pany widely rec­og­nized as pro­duc­ing some of the finest tech­ni­cal out­door fabr ics. The con­struc­tion and de­tail­ing are sim­i­larly un­com­pro­mis­ing with care­fully po­si­tioned pock­ets (that are ac­ces­si­ble while wear­ing a pack or har­ness) and a low bulk hel­met-com­pat­i­ble hood for ex­cel­lent pro­tec­tion from the ele­ments. Two in­ter ior pock­ets pro­vide ex­tra stor­age, while the on-the-seam hand warmer pock­ets are a nice ad­di­tion when head­ing to the bar with fr iends to re­count the glor ious sum­mit push. This is a solid and highly ver­sa­tile soft shell jacket suit­able for al­most any win­ter ac­tiv­ity.
