One of my favoritesThe Alpine Start hoody from Black Diamond is one of my favorite pieces of gear. For those cooler spring and summer days, when I need a light layer when the sun goes down, or to fend off light precipitation and wind, the Alpine Start is the perfect piece to have in my climbing or hiking pack. It is so lightweight that you barely notice that you're wearing it and it packs up as small as a baseball! However, packability and ultralight weight are not even the best features of this jacket. Self cleaning Schoeller construction adds durability and amazing weather resistance for this type of piece. I love to bring the Alpine Start hoody along when I'm climbing, since it features a helmet compatible hood, gusseted arms for maximum arm mobility, as well as slightly longer, trim fit that works perfectly with a harness. I have been continually impressed with Black Diamond's clothing line and the Alpine Start hoody is no exception.
