- Sierra Trading Post refers to the men's version

The Sherpa Imja Jacket is almost weightless and hovers above your skin as you move, averting drizzle and wind. IceFil stretch-mesh panels under the arms ventilate and cool as you build steam, elbows are articulated, thumb holes keep sleeves in place, and it compresses to almost nothing in a pocket when not in use.

The weather report for the Squaw Peak 50 Ultramarathon calls for intermittent showers, so you grab the Sherpa Adventure Gear Men's Imja Softshell Jacket on your way to the start. This highly compressible and lightweight shell protects you from light flurries and drizzle thanks to the DWR coating. Underarm stretch mesh panels let fresh air in and hot air out as you grunt up a 5% incline in misty conditions. Thumbholes, articulated elbows, and two-way stretch fabric let you anchor the sleeves without feeling constricted or restricted. When it starts to spit more forcefully, the hood provides a bit more protection, and the elastic binding keeps it snug against your running hat. If you're Squaw support on a bike, you'll be grateful for the longer rear hem. This style ensures coverage when you're leaning forward. Completely squished, the Imja occupies the same space as a typical canned beverage.
