The age-old puzzle of the high alpine’s unpredictable weather is finally solved by the Black Diamond Access Hoody, which gives you the ultimate in packable protection. Constructed from a Pertex outer and body-mapped, migration-resistant PrimaLoft One Insulation, it marries durability that can handle the beatings that the mountains dish out with a trim profile for full packability. With gusseted, breathable underarms designed with Schoeller and a smaller concentration of insulation, you’ll be able to work through high-output pursuits without swapping layers. An elastic, climbing-helmet-compatible hood and a pocket that packs the jacket and clips to your harness give the Access Hoody complete versatility.
For long, exposed approaches, summit naps and sunny sessions at the crag, the Black Diamond Alpenglow Hoody keeps you covered when sunscreen just won't cut it. Constructed from Wick-It fabric, it manages sweat, and 50-UPF protection blocks out harsh rays at high elevations. An underarm gusset, under-the-helmet hood and comfortable cuff dial in the details.
For ridge traverses, windy days at the crag and summer high altitude objectives, the Black Diamond Alpine Light Pants combine a breathable construction with a profile that enables reachy moves and fast ascents. With a single-weave fabric and four-way stretch, they'll handle the gamut of mountain pursuits, plus a DWR finish takes on light precip. Adjustable cuffs easily adjust the legs on warmer days and tight squeezes, and a ladder lock with belt loops manages the fit.
During any spring or fall mission, the Black Diamond Alpine Pants marry extreme durability with a highly breathable construction. Designed with a four-way stretch fabric, they can handle any on-route move, and their lightweight construction keeps sweaty high-output missions from getting out of hand. A DWR finish adds peace of mind during questionable weather windows. With a hem-cord adjust in the ankles and integrated, adjustable belt with low-profile belt loops, adjustability is paramount.
An ultralight softshell designed to shield weight-conscious climbers from ridgeline gusts and light weather, the Black Diamond Alpine Start Hoody features Schoeller® stretch-woven fabric to provide highly breathable and highly packable weather resistance. A gusseted construction offers unrestricted freedom of movement, while the adjustable hood fits over a climbing helmet. The jacket also stuffs into its own chest pocket, which features an internal carabiner clip loop for attaching to your harness.
