The North Face Ama Dablam Jacket
The Ama Dablam Jacket has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best waterproof jackets for 2024.
This shell is not only light, comfortable and well designed it is very water resistant. Having used a lot of different shells I like this a size larger so I can layer fleece or down depending on the weather conditions. The inner water bottle is a nice touch.
Uses: Wet and cold. Proper layering will allow almost all cold weather conditions.
Pros: Very dry, comfortable and fair stretch.
Cons: Price tag will wake you up but this might be your last shell you’ll ever buy, unless you accidentally drag your ice axe across the sleeve.
this shell is sweet. i don't like north face shells too much, but this one is pretty hot. i love the waterproof zippers (introduced by arc'teryx) and its light as paper. i know ems makes a very similar shell if you really dont like north face. but i think this one is worth the money i paid for it.
napolean pocket is a plus.
great value since i got it on sale.
Fabric: gore-tex paclite
Price Paid: ~$200
honestly an unbelieveable packable jacket perfect for warm weather hiking trips... really breathable, cost is a lot but i picked up mine for 180. hood is super functional, i think the sizes run slightly large. only 15 oz so its really an unbeatable jacket. regardless of the anti-north face hype this jacket is great.
