Wicked winds, spring squalls and the bite of early March mornings - whether leading out from a hanging belay or ski touring the High Sierra, the all-new Adze does everything a soft shell should. It breathes, blocks wind and keeps quiet. Key is the Polartec® Windbloc® stretch-woven polyester shell, which deflects wind while breathing freely and moving with a soft, supple hand - add to this a moisture-resisting DWR (durable water repellent) finish for a jacket can deal with the elements. The microgrid fleece interior traps heat, moves moisture and feels great next-to-skin, allowing total versatility with short- or long-sleeved layers. Features include two reverse-coil zippered hand pockets and one internal zippered chest pocket, hook-and-loop cuff closures and a drawcord hem to seal out the elements and seal in heat.
