This is our Emergency Jacket. Created out of a need for an affordable, lightweight Dyneema Shell designed for those freak summer thunderstorms or Drizzly PNW mornings.
I've always wanted a Dyneema Shell, one that wouldn't wet out, EVER, and would be light enough to stuff away and forget about. This is that shell.
There's a jacket for every trip, and while this jacket performs well in many conditions, it is NOT intended for long, humid trips where you're expecting weather every day. It is an emergency jacket. No bells, no whistles. Just the bare essentials to keep you dry and be as light as possible.
Perfect for storms less than an hour, as long as there's a long sleeve base layer underneath and humidity isn't very high. The colder it is outside, the longer you can comfortably hike in this jacket -- all day at times. We will be releasing a fully-featured shell next year that is made from the WPB version of this laminate (which is much more expensive) which will be comparable to market leaders in weight, price, and features.
This shell features a brimless, form-fitting hood designed to be worn with a hat. A new jacket will be translucent and become more opaque with more vivid colors as it ages and creases.
It is a snug, athletic fit with room for a base layer, thermal, or maybe an ultralight puffy. If you intend on wearing lots of layers, size up. If you are in between sizes, size up. If you have massive forearms or very wide shoulders, size up.
Colorway pics are oriented so that the top color is the top of the jacket (hood, shoulders) and the bottom color is the bottom of the jacket (sleeve ends, waist) with the middle being natural non-sublimated Dyneema.
*Due to dye sublimation printing, colors may vary slightly.
