A light down jacket for really tough conditions: proofed breathable Drishell inside as well as out. Put it on straight over damp or snowy clothing and don't worry about soaking the down. A very user-friendly piece of gear, designed for easy swapping at belay points, with quick closure, large hood, cross-arm chest pockets, clip loop, etc. It will keep you warm on grim bivouacs, hanging belays, or just smothered in spindrift. Keep it for yourself or share it as survival kit for the p.b. who has to wait around while the leader sorts out the next pitch.
A specialist jacket to be worn over your wet waterproof iceclimbing jacket ;-), to be swapped between partners on belays.
This is built to order by PHD, expect some weeks delivery time ... quality is unmatched, imo.
Its easy to put on and off, even with gloves, no need to operate the zipper, the front velcros allow decent closure of the jacket. The optional hood fits over the helmet and provides additional warmth.
The outer/inner material repels water quite well but is easily pierced by picks and screws.
I'm using McNett self-adhesive patches to cover holes.
