Whether you're bugging out right before the end of the world or maximizing limited packing space for weekend escapes, the La Sportiva Women's Iris Jacket is your grab-and-go piece. This low-profile fleece jacket slips under a shell when you're foraging in nuclear winter, or goes it alone with confidence and style when you're ambling through the streets of San Francisco at dusk. TecStretch Pro fabric is like a good dance partner, following your every move without limitations. The stretchy fabric is treated with Polygiene to resist odor-causing bacterial growth, just in case your three-week vacation plans don't involve access to modern amenities like a washing machine or running water. The fabric does more than stretch like a world-class gymnast. The dual-surfaced material is highly breathable and insulating, so you can wear the jacket while working hard in cold environments and not suffer the ill-effects of chilled-sweat started shivers. Flat seams mean the Iris won't rub you the wrong way and thumbholes let you lock down the sleeves when the wind kicks up. The full-length zipper parks in a covered zipper garage, protecting your chin from chafing against cold metal. Two off-seam zippered hand pockets open up to hold your gloved hands when you need extra warmth, or just your phone and city map on an urban excursion.
The La Sportiva Iris Jacket is a great layering piece or a grab and go jacket for warmer winter days. The attention to design and fit combined with the stretchy TecStretch Pro will make this your most comfortable lightweight jacket. The antibacterial treatment will keep you smelling like a snow goddess.
