With the Black Diamond Men’s Liquid Point Shell Jacket, you don’t have to choose between burly waterproof protection and light weight. Made with Gore-Tex PacLite, this waterproof/windproof shell is easily stuffed in the bottom of your pack for when an unexpected storm blows through the upper most elevations. With a weight of just 14. 5 ounces, it won’t weigh you down during long approaches and multi-day backpacking trips, but that doesn’t mean it won’t fend of even the most unruly mountain storms. Fully taped seams, a DWR treatment, and a water-resistant center front zipper all prevent water from seeping through, while its helmet-compatible hood, and adjustable cuffs and hem let you batten down the hatches when the skies go from grey to black.
