Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: wb400
Price Paid: $229

The gladiator of the EMS line. This is the big brother to the Ascent Dryskin Jacket. WB400 fabric makes it totally bomber in any condition. EMS is top quality once again and proves once again that they are king of the mountain.

My favorite feature is the built in dryskin hood. Stretches and forms well around my helmet on steep walls. Definitely worth the 229 price. It may be cheaper by now.
