The lightest alpine shell. With Dry.Q Elite technology, the Quasar Lite expels excess heat and moisture to keep you comfortable on tough ascents. Dry.Q Elite's waterproof, breathable, air-permeable technology keeps you dry inside and out. Revolutionary air-permeable membrane construction in a 2.5-layer shell. 40D face fabric is light and durable. Superior mobility: Bottom hem will not move even when arms are at full stretch. Dry.Q Elite is used in Mountain Hardwear's most premium waterproof-breathable products. It offers the most comfortable level of breathability by combining high moisture-vapor transfer rates and air permeability at all body temperatures. Traditional waterproof-breathable technologies require high levels of user exertion (high body heat) before the breathability kicks in. Dry.Q Elite is instant-on technology. It starts breathing the instant you put it on, regardless of temperature or level of exertion for waterproof, windproof performance like you've always wanted, guaranteed.
