Strata Flex Jacket $225

Gripped - - HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE -

The Strata Flex com­bines light­weight in­su­la­tion with ex­tremely high breatha­bilit y with stretch pan­els and a shell into a re­mark­ably ver­sa­tile jacket that func­tions equally well as a mid- or outer-layer. The shell blocks wind and sheds light pre­cip­i­ta­tion, the un­der­arm and side pan­els dump heat while it pro­vides core warmth with an un­prece­dented level of breatha­bilit y. The cut is slim and lay­ers well while gen­er­ous stretch keeps the jacket from rid­ing up out of a har­ness. Two hand pock­ets store es­sen­tials, and thumb loops in the cuff keep your wrists warm. The range of con­di­tions this jacket works in is hard to com­pre­hend: where pre­vi­ously you would shed lay­ers, the Strata Flex just seems to breathe more. The thought­ful com­bi­na­tion of fab­rics and climber-friendly de­sign makes this a stand­out piece for year-round use.
