Depending on where you live, soaking storms can be a novel occurrence or simply wetness as usual (we’re talking to you, PNW, Eastern Seaboard, B.C., Japan …). For those who move regularly through superhumid zones, the Cloud Ridge Jacket balances reliable H2No Performance Standard protection with responsible construction in a simple yet robust jacket. Thoughtfully built with 100% recycled polyester face fabric and a recyclable polyester barrier and backer, it offers 3-layer waterproof/breathable protection and next-to-skin comfort in wet conditions. The 2-way-adjustable, alpine helmet-compatible hood with laminated visor rolls down and stows away with a simplified cord-and-hook design, while soft microfleece on the neck and chin goes easy on your skin. The watertight center zipper has a minimal interior storm flap and two ventilating mesh hand pockets (with coated, watertight zippers) that sit between a pack’s waistbelt and sternum strap. Details include a hook-and-loop cuff closures, a drawcord hem and stuffsack with clip-in loop.
