Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: nylon, gore-tex xcr

This piece is from back when EMS made hard-driving performance clothing for the outdoors. It's a great mountaineering suit, waterproof, super breathable, windproof, reinforced in wear areas and has zip vents everywhere.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

A full-on waterproof/breathable suit designed to meet the demands of both the local ice crag and the tallest mountains in the world. Tested intensively by the EMS Climbing School. Noninsulated. Weighs 2 pounds 7 ounces. Ripstop nylon shell with reinforced shoulders, rear, and back of upper legs. 3-layer Gore-Tex? XCR membrane is built to withstand the abrasion-rich life of ice climbing and mountaineering. Gore-Tex XCR is as waterproof as original Gore-Tex and 25% more breathable. Roll-up, adjustable hood is large enough to accommodate a climbing or skiing helmet. Underarm pit zips extend down the sides of the legs all the way to the ankle for superior venting options. Main zipper extends from the neck, all the way down the front and part way up the back for convenience's sake. All zippers on suit are urethane-sealed to keep out snow and rain. Zippered chest pockets; elastic waist; adjustable (and removable) waist belt; adjustable wrist cuffs.
