When climbing wintery peaks you need a jacket that can protect you from the elements without the weight or bulk of other winter coats. The best alpine jackets are designed to have cleanliness, keep you dry, allow you to breathe, yet subtle enough to wear under a harness and/or backpack without getting in the way. They also have to be durable to abrasion and provide a hood that can fit over a helmet or under if need be. In Alpine situations weather can be deadly, so that is why Rock Creek only carries the best companies to protect you in some of the harshest conditions.
