Mountain Hardwear Superconductor Jacket
The Superconductor is a lightweight “do it all” insulated soft shell jacket that pairs a 50D Chockstone face fabric with 100 gram Thermal.Q synthetic insulation. At 1 lb 8 oz it is essentially designed to replace the soft shell, or outer layer, and the insulating, or mid layer, into one piece for less weight. For the times when the versatility of a soft shell — good abrasion resistance, highly wind and water resistant, breathable and stretchy — is needed, but the temperatures are too cold for an unlined shell, the 100 gram synthetic insulation will fight off the chill. A nylon liner has been added to increase comfort for the users as well as add some extra wind protection.
The Superconductor is built with a high collar and three harness- and pack-compatible pockets: two hand warmer and one chest pocket. This jacket is also available in a separate version with a 3 way adjustable hood.
Built in both men and women’s, this jacket is designed for on the go, high exertion activities, where the body is generating a lot of heat and the breathability would be beneficial: cross-country skiing, ice climbing, and hiking would be typical uses.
Historic Range: $69.95-$175.00
