The original Black Diamond Alpine Shirt bit the dust years ago, but it's been bettered and brought back to life as the B. D. V. Men's Softshell Jacket, a light-and-fast climbing softshell made to help you get to the top and back down in one dry, comfortable piece. Made with Schoeller stretch-woven fabric and climbing-specific gusseted underarms, the B. D. V. won't leave you pinned in a stemmy corner unable to move your arms, and the NanoSphere technology will shed water to keep you from getting soggy in a drizzle. It weighs under a pound, stows away in its own pocket, and even has a carabiner loop so you can clip it to your harness when the sun pops out and things start to dry off.
Breathable, packable and highly weather resistant, the Black Diamond B.D.V. Jacket stands as a modern reimagining of our legendary Alpine Shirt and is the perfect accompaniment to alpine objectives of all sizes and persuasions. Built with Schoeller stretch-woven softshell fabric, the B.D.V. is dynamic enough for high-output days but durable and protective enough to fend off moderate alpine conditions. The gusseted underarm panels are optimized for climbing movement, and the jacket stores in its own chest pocket with a carabiner clip loop for easy racking on your harness.
