A super-fast drying action layer that combines warmth and weather protection for the most demanding climbing and mountaineering.

Mountain Equipment says:

Lightweight 30D RS stretch outer fabric balances the moisture transfer required for running up exposed ice fields with the durability needed for rock climbing in the high mountains. The specially developed Octoyarn Warp-Knit lining offers insulation you can move fast in combined with rapid drying that will be appreciated on one day sprints and multi-day missions alike.

The Kinesis Jacket is Mountain Equipment's own highly breathable active insulation piece. It's about half the weight of similar active insulation pieces (such as Polartec Alpha) but only has around 40g/m2 of Warp-Knit Octoyarn insulation which is about half the warmth of some pieces.

The Octoyarn lining is a very fine fleece fabric that moves moisture rapidly and dries just as fast. It's designed to keep you comfortable through most temperatures and activities. The 30D stretch air permeable outer fabric offers a good amount of stretch and will work well under a shell in wet conditions.

The jacket offers good wind resistance but it's not fully windproof as it work by letting enough air through it to help dry it out when wet. Overall a very lightweight, versatile and highly breathable layer for active adventures.
