When the ascent demands lightning-fast speeds through variable conditions and terrain, look no further than the Black Diamond Women’s Sharp End Shell Jacket. The Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer shell provides unparalleled protection and breathability in the alpine, and since it weighs in at only 14 oz, you aren’t sacrificing weight for protection either. When the breathability of jacket isn’t enough to keep up with the rate of your ascent, two ventilation zippers allow you to ditch heat quickly to avoid perspiration. The integrated cohesive cord management technology implements an internal cord-lock for fast adjustments at the hem and hood without loops and elastic sticking out. Two side storage pockets provide room to carry a few snacks, straps, or lightweight liner gloves. All the while, the Vislon Aquaguard center front zipper prevents moisture from seeping in through the front.
