The unique heathered finish of the Eider Target Knit Spirit Men's Jacket will get all the compliments, but the Gore Tex Active Shell waterproof and breathable membrane is what will keep you fired up while you're wearing it. Active Shell blocks wind, too, so the Spirit is at home in all sorts of soggy and unpleasant mountain weather, even if it looks more like a city jacket than a highly technical trail piece. Its DWR finish beads and sheds precipitation, while the fully taped seams prevent insidious dampness from creeping in at the body and the laminated hood brim helps keep water away from your face. The Spirit has a slim, alpine ready fit and extremely packable lightweight fabric, so it's easy to stow when the weather turns. The Spirit has mesh lined hand pockets that double as vents, integrated thumbholes to keep your wrists covered and your sleeves in place, and a drop tail hem for extra coverage where it matters.
