This Summit Series jacket was designed for the top, and then some. GORE-TEX Active Shell: Provides extreme breathability along with durable waterproof and windproof protection for all-weather, high-aerobic activities. GORE-TEX Paclite shells use a specific membrane with a protective internal layer made of an oil-hating/carbon hybrid - eliminating the need for a separate lining, making this lighter, smaller, and easier to pack away. GORE-TEX Performance Shell: Specifically engineered to form an impenetrable barrier against wind and water while maintaining breathability, this waterproof material uses a two-layer construction for a lighter, softer feel - and in a three-layer construction for a more heavy-duty alternative.
