Depending on where you live, soaking storms can be a novel occurrence or simply wetness as usual (we'e talking to you, PNW, Eastern Seaboard, B.C., Japan¦). For those who move regularly through super-humid zones, the new Cloud Ridge Jacket balances reliable H2No Performance Standard protection with environmental impact in a simple yet robust jacket. Thoughtfully built with a 100% recycled 3-layer polyester fabric and a recyclable polyester barrier and backer, it offers waterproof/breathable protection and next-to-skin comfort in wet, sticky conditions. The 2-way-adjustable, alpine helmetâ€œcompatible hood with laminated visor rolls down and stows away with a simplified cord-and-hook design, while soft microfleece on the neck and chin goes easy on your skin. The watertight center zipper has a minimal interior storm flap and two ventilating mesh hand pockets (with coated, watertight zippers) that sit between a pack's waist belt and sternum strap. With hook-and-loop cuff closures, a drawcord hem and stuffsack with clip-in loop.
