The Men's Switchback Jacket is Cloudveil's mountain favorite. Cloudveil constructed this versatile softshell with lightweight Schoeller Dynamic, a woven blend of nylon and Lycra that is durable, breathable, and weather resistant. Climb, hike, ski tour, or bike the Switchback does it all. For maximum mobility on the rock, the Dynamic material is permanently elastic and has an active stretch. High set pockets keep you hands warm while shouldering a pack. In the winter backcountry, the Swithback's athletic fit and temperature regulating design keep you comfortable while you set the skin track. Meanwhile NanoSphere surface technology maximizes DWR performance by repelling oil and grease ideal when fixing your bike in the rain. Best of all, the Swithback's functional styling and clean lines make it a jacket you'll wear well off the mountain.
