Lightweight, waterproof-breathable, and durable, the Torsun Jacket by Mountain Hardwear is built for high-alpine pursuits. Superior articulation (particularly at the elbows) provides optimum mobility when you’re working your way up a route, and asymmetrical cuffs protect your hands without impeding dexterity. Dry.Q Elite 3-layer fabric is extremely strong, with a 40D nylon face fabric that can handle the roughest rockscapes. And this sleek-lined piece is fully waterproof, plus breathable from the moment you put it on (so you don’t have to sweat before the fabric starts to dump excess heat). Pack- and harness-compatible pockets keep all your stashed essentials handy, and also act as easily accessible vents. The hood is three-way-adjustable and helmet-compatible.
Meanwhile, the Mountain Hardwear Stretchstone Flannel Shirt is a ruggedly fashionable piece that stretches like carefully engineered technical wear. It may look like a button-up flannel worthy of wearing around town, but its poly-Lycra fabric provides plenty of mobility for active pursuits, without losing any of its cozy softness. The women’s version features a hood.
