The women's Sumcham Shell is a highly waterproof, breathable and versatile jacket. Super tough so it can withstand alpine abuse.  

Berghaus says:

The women's Sumcham Jacket is perfect for those classic Alpine routes or big days out in the West Highlands of Scotland - fully waterproof and tough as nails!

This streamlined, clean-cut, extremely durable jacket features Hydroshell Elite Pro waterproof fabric, with extra protective panels across the shoulders and hips. Storm tested and pushed to it's limits by our field testing team in the Alps and UK, you can be confident that the Sumcham has been put through its paces. The female-specific design provides a flattering silhouette without compromising the technical features that you need for a hard day's climbing.

The feature set includes a helmet-compatible hood with a wired stiffened peak, articulated sleeves for good arm lift and two raised hand pockets, so you'll stay comfortable and protected all day long. A superb versatile jacket that's as up for it as you are!

We like that the Women's Berghaus Sumcham Shell jacket features a more robust fabric over the arms, shoulders and waist, as you definitely want enhanced durability over the heavier worn areas that rucksacks tend to ruin first. And as it's feature set is aimed at alpine climbers, I'm sure it will be put to the test during a hard days climb.

It offers durable strength for close to rock activities and excellent waterproof protection that can stand up to extreme Scottish weather.
