Outdoor Research Skyward II Jacket

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

You're halfway up the skin track and you're completely soaked, but it's not raining or snowing. It's sweat. With the Outdoor Research Men's Skyward II Jacket you'll stay dry from your baselayer out, even when you're the one setting the skinner. The AscentShell 3L membrane is completely waterproof, wind-resistant, incredibly breathable, but also maintains a comfortable stretch so you can pole plant freely. The Skyward II is a winner simply because of the shell, but Outdoor Research also added a laundry list of thoughtful features to optimize the jacket's performance in the backcountry. Large hem-to-bicep vents let you easily cool down without shedding layers, and front pockets are strategically placed out of the way of a harness or backpack waist belt, allowing easy snack access. When you're getting ready to rappel into a couloir, or need to quickly access your beacon, the jacket's double zipper lets you do so with ease.
