– One of our favorite new pieces for 2013/2014 from Black Diamond is the Dawn Patrol Jacket. This jacket is designed to manage the kinds of body heat you generate while skinning up a B line to the top. The trick is not to overheat while you’re hiking up. Once at the top the sweat will only chill you to the bone coming back down. You need an outer layer that will release that heat but block the wind on the descent. The Black Diamond Dawn Patrol LT Jacket fits this bill to a T.
The key is the material of the jacket itself. The Schoeller® durable and dynamic stretch-woven softshell fabric repels ice, spindrift and wet winter precip while letting all the heat around escape so you stay comfortable, warm, and not soaked. The durability of Schoeller is second to none, wears like iron, and will last you very long time.
The Feature list includes: Adjustable, climbing helmet-compatible hood. Zippered chest pocket. Two zippered hand pockets. Two internal drop pockets. Internal stretch media pocket. Velcro® cuff. Drawcord hem.
The fit is athletic and trim. No frills.
