Even in midsummer, conditions can be fickle on your north-facing alpine project. Scattered clouds and a light breeze quickly turn sending temps into an unpleasant belay experience. Luckily, the DAS® Light Hoody has your back on alpine belay duty, windy ridgeline scrambles and late-season desert tower missions. The hoody is constructed using Patagonia’s PlumaFill insulation along with an ultralight nylon ripstop face fabric that provides protection against those less-than-ideal conditions common in the alpine. By pairing a hung face fabric with quilted insulation, the DAS® Light Hoody provides maximum warmth with minimal stitching and little additional weight. Climbing-specific features include a helmet-compatible hood with a single-pull adjustment in back, a two-way, centre-front zipper for belay loop access, and the ability to self-stuff into the front left pocket.
