Mountain Hardwear's Super Chockstone Jacket is super light and super stretchy with a softshell performance to keep changeable weather at bay.
Mountain Hardwear says: Lightweight, wind-resistant alpine and rock-climbing jacket with UPF 50. The double-weave fabric is light, stretchy, and offers excellent mobility. Boasting UPF 50 for sun protection and a waist cinch that’s single-hand adjustable, the Super Chockstone Jacket makes a great second layer for most alpine pursuits.
Mountain Hardwear's Super Chockstone Jacket is quite light for a softshell - that means its performance in dealing with drizzle and light showers won't be as good as heavier garments but its highly breathable, super stretchy and a joy to wear. Its completely unrestrictive and it will keep out the occasional shower.
The chest pocket and main zip are a contrast colour, whereas the zippers on the two hand pockets match the main colour of the garment. The binding at the wrist is very neat and there's some stretch in the wrist aperture due to the stretch of the fabric.
The inside of the hand pockets are lined with the same fabric as the jacket - not mesh - and the main hem can be cinched or left to drape. A micro fleece lining to the inside of the collar adds comfort.
The Super Chockstone Jacket is a really nice piece to wear for additional warmth and additional protection during Spring or Autumn excursions.
