Thursday Steals: 60% off Mountain Hardwear Jackets!
“When the winter snows start to melt, and spring comes creeping in, it’s time to kick-off climbing season with a thermos of hot joe and your warmest climbing clothes. Demanding durability to resist rock abrasion, stretch for unrestricted reach, and cold weather warmth, spring climbing asks a lot of your clothes. Mountain Hardwear put 10 years of research and development into perfecting a cold weather climbing solution and came up with the Super/DS Climb. This jacket offers next-level insulation that combines a durable stretch fabric and lofty 700-fill down for what just might be the perfect crag coat.” — Backcountry
“The minimalist and lightweight design of the Mountain Hardwear Kor Strata Climb Hooded Jacket will help push you to new heights on your climbing pitch in times of cold weather. Equipped with a Pertex Quantam Air fabric, the nylon material is durable against abrasion from porous rocks and resists water to keep you dry and comfortable if storm clouds roll in during your climb. Harness compatible pockets allow access to your gear when roped up, and a drop tail adds extra protection while you’re reaching far for the next hold. When you’re headed back to the car or basecamp, toss it in your pack without taking up room thanks to the compressible Primaloft Gold insulation.” — BC
“Layering for cool spring runs just got a whole lot easier thanks to the Mountain Hardwear Kor Preshell Hooded Jacket. This ultralight jacket has the stretch, breathability, and weather-resistance that you need to stay comfortable when you hit the road or trail in hard-to-guess weather. It’s made with Pertex Quantum Air, a lightweight ripstop that sheds light rain and blocks moderate winds without sacrificing air-permeability. The result is a jacket that offers weather-resistant protection and won’t pack heat when you start to work hard. The full-zip design allows for further ventilation and airflow if the weather warms up during your run, and if you find it’s gotten balmy enough to shed your jacket completely, you can stuff it into its own hand pocket, stash it in a pack or pocket, and keep on cruising.” — BC
“Following in the footsteps of Mountain Hardwear’s ultralight jacket that you know and love, the Ghost Whisperer S Jacket brings the featherlite warmth back with a unique silhouette. The S retains its competitive edge on the warmth-to-weight ratio scale with 800-fill down insulation and a savvy 10D x 10D ripstop shell, keeping its additional weight to your pack at a mere 7 ounces. And when it’s not packed down oh-so-small into its own pocket, it makes a most convenient layer between you and the freezing weather at the resort, or during an early-morning belay, or on windswept ridge trails. Nikwax-treated down won’t lose its valuable loft if it gets wet in that waist-deep pow, and the Whisperer face fabric defends the sharp wind that’s hanging out at the crag.” — BC
“Lightweight, stretchy, and breathable for your fastest runs, weather-resistant for unpredictable spring days—the Mountain Hardwear Kor Preshell Hooded Jacket has everything the dedicated runner needs to get out and enjoy those first days of muddy trails and snowless sidewalks. This performance-ready hoodie is made with Pertex Quantum Air, an ultralight ripstop fabric that balances air-permeability with weather-resistant protection, keeping you protected from light wind and rain while maintaining breathable comfort throughout your run. It’s got a full-zip design that lets you control your levels of ventilation when the temperatures warm up, and when you decide that the day’s gotten balmy enough to shed your jacket completely, you can stuff it into its own hand pocket and stash it in a pack or pocket.” — BC
“The Monkey Woman 2 Fleece Jacket is the revival of Mountain Hardwear’s original, best-selling jacket to continue to provide you with layering warmth, a soft feel, and comfort for your cool weather adventures. Whether you’re hiking or climbing, the breathable, heat-trapping grid fleece under the arms helps regulate your temperature on strenuous ascents or challenging routes. The two zippered pockets add convenience and secure your on-trail essentials.” — BC
“The Keele Hybrid Hoodie from Mountain Hardwear was designed for climbers looking to extend their climbing season and locations to colder temperatures, while still being unrestricted for powerful moves. The hybrid construction has super stretchy panels on the chest, back, and hood to promote range of motion and let you reach for the next hold effortlessly, while the Power Plush fleece and cozy warmth and breathability when you need it most. The 3/4 zipper design stays out of the way of a climbing harness, and a front zippered chest pocket holds your phone or keys.” — BC
“The Kor Strata Climb Jacket is a mid-weight technical jacket packed with climbing-specific features for rock enthusiasts. Two zippered hand pockets are harness compatible, and a highly packable design stows away in the rope bag when it’s time to try a new route.” — BC
