Offering the water resistance of a hardshell ski jacket with the breathability of your favorite softshell, the Black Diamond Men's Recon Jacket delivers the best of both worlds with its mixed material approach to technical touring performance. Purposely designed for fast paced tours where protection from deep snow and maximum breathability are paramount, the Recon Jacket is your new best friend for charging up steep skin tracks and dropping into pow choked chutes on the way down. Equipped with a Gore WindStopper membrane, the Recon is completely windproof, ensuring maximum warmth when you're battling frigid alpine air and howling summit winds. Gore WindStopper is also water resistant for high levels of protection in deep snow and variable alpine conditions. Incorporated into perspiration heavy zones, Schoeller stretch woven fabric enhances breathability along the underarms and back panels. This softshell fabric not only breathes exceptionally well to reduce built up perspiration on demanding tours, but it's also highly flexible for maximum freedom of movement where you need it most.
