On days where dawn-patrol ski tours lead to scratchy mixed chimneys, the Alpine Guide moves, protects and breathes. It relies on our best-ever Guide fabric, a Polartec Power Shield stretch-woven blend (nylon/polyester/spandex) with Hardface Technology that dramatically improves the Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finishs resistance to wind, water, snow and abrasion, while remaining stretchy and highly breathable. The articulated sleeves encourage mobility, while the brushed interior enhances next-to-skin comfort and moisture management. A chest pocket and two hand pockets sit above the harness line and close with coated, water-resistant zippers. Self-fabric hook-and-loop closures at the cuffs, a dual-adjust drawcord at the waist and microfleece lining on the collar, chin guard and wind flap round out the features.
