The ultimate shell for skiing outside the ropes, the Compulsion jacket delivers unbeatable waterproof breathability and a smooth face that takes the "hard" out of hardshell.
It's almost as though you wait until the weather has past miserable and is moving dangerously close towards tortuous before you venture outside. The Mountain Hardwear Men's Compulsion 3L Jacket can't explain you, but it understands what drives you forward when mere mortals take a step back. Tough face fabric puts the hard in hardshell protection but feels soft and pliable to keep you comfy in the backcountry for a full day of touring. Dry. Q Elite represents Mountain Hardwear's premier weatherproofing. Unlike other technologies, Dry. Q Elite does not require a critical mass of moisture vapor to breathe; instead, this tech is always on, so you don't notice the first peep of perspiration when you're skinning straight up. Conversely, the dense nature of the nylon weave creates a windproof barrier. If you do get sweaty, and you're ready to reap the steep and deep fruits of your labors, Dry. Q Elite won't the let wind in to turn your sweat into cold, clammy wetness. Since water is bigger than air, it stands to reason that if air can't get through the fabric, it would be physically impossible for water to get in. As such, you're left with Dry. Q's windproof, waterproof, and breathable protection. Instead of bells and whistles, the Compulsion 3L has fireworkers and cannons. The adjustable stretch powder skirt comes off when spring corn replaces February pow spray. The drop hood holds your helmet and adjusts so you're never looking at the inside of the hood. Pack-compatible pockets double as escape routes for surplus body heat as you hit steep sections of skintrack, and the full-length water-resistant zipper takes away water's last chance for entry.
