A jacket that keeps you comfortably warm while you belay in either alpine or ice climbing adventures has to be a work of art, and the Black Diamond Men's Stance Belay Insulated Parka is the Mona Lisa of all belay jackets. Two layers of 80g PrimaLoft Synergy bring the warmth without the weight even if it gets wet, so you stay nice and toasty while you belay your buddy. A Pertex shell adds durability, wind-resistance, breathability, and better moisture-wicking qualities than waterproof membranes. To make up for that lack of wet-weather protection, Black Diamond coated the jacket with DWR to help keep you dry while your climber scrapes ice down on your belay ledge.The Stance features an adjustable hood that either slides over your helmet or cinches across your head. A two-way zipper at the center front aptly accommodates your harness, belay device, and rope. Stretch gussets at the cuffs softly seal out any blustery blizzard heading your way, and the drawcord at the hem retains all that wonderful warmth. The internal drop pockets have enough room for your gloves, and the chest pockets have even more space. With an internal pocket for your phone, you have plenty of space to warm up your digits in the hand pockets before you start your send.
