The Women's Alchemy Hooded Jacket is a softshell climbing jacket made with Mountain Hardwear's Dry. Q elite waterproof breathable technology, so you stay warm and, more importantly, dry during your high-altitude ascents. Traditional waterproof breathable tech requires a high amount of body heat before it starts to breathe, where jackets made with Dry. Q elite tech are breathable as soon as you put them on. This reduces moisture accumulating beneath your shell. The Alchemy features a 3-way adjustable, helmet-compatible hood with a wire brim, so it retains it shape after being packed away in your gear bag. A large interior mesh drop pocket is great for stashing a pair of gloves or other gear climbing gear.
Sculpted with a close-fitting alpine cut for climbing on rock and ice, this Mountain Hardwear Alchemy Jacket is the same one you've seen in magazines and possibly making the big moves out on the wall. It's a rugged and stretchy combination of breathable Alchemy stretch face fabric with Schoeller Softshell four-way stretch panels along the sides and sleeves. Everything is backed with a windproof Gore WINDSTOPPER Softshell Laminate that helps insulate without stifling vapor transfer. Clean Power Stretch cuffs eliminate the fuss and protruding tabs found on some soft shells with Velcro cuff closures. If conditions are dry, the Mountain Hardwear Alchemy Jacket is also an ideal fit for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing throughout the winter months. If mobility matters and wind protection is key, this articulated and athletic jacket is the right formula for you.

As the flagship of Mountain Hardwear's softshell line, the Women's Alchemy Jacket blocks wind, repels water, breathes, and stretches with the best of the best. Its Gore Windstopper laminate eliminates wind chill when you're standing unprotected atop a blustery peak. A water resistant finish sheds mild to moderate precipitation while allowing the softshell to breathe. The Alchemy remains a favorite among hardcore female alpinists and backcountry skiers not only because it protects them from harsh weather, but because its articulated, feminine cut with four-way stretch underarm panels lets them climb without restriction.
