The high amount of elastic spandex in the Dawn Patrol Softshell Jacket by Black Diamond guarantees maximum range of motion during intense activities such as mountain climbing or skiing. The 4-way stretch with brushed back lies very comfortable on the skin and is extremely water repellent from the outside thanks to a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment. The breathable softshell jacket is tailored to the needs of ski touring adventurers and ski mountaineers. As such, the hand pockets are located on the sides so that they are easily accessible even with a tightened climbing harness and the hood can be easily adjusted even when wearing a climbing or ski helmet. Two further filling pockets are located on the inside of the Dawn Patrol Shell and on the left chest is an additional zipped chest pocket. High-quality Velcro fasteners on the wrists keep the sleeves in a reliable position. On long ascents and tiring ski and mountain tours, the Dawn Patrol Shell Jacket by Black Diamond provides a perfect combination of protection, range of motion and breathability.
