Active shell jacket in superior wind and waterproof DERMIZAX® MATTE FLEX 2.5L nylon fabric. The front of the jacket features Descente’s unique Dual Zip Ventilation system, with a mesh panel between two full front zippers allowing an inflow of outside air to alleviate any buildup of uncomfortable heat and humidity inside the jacket. The hood incorporates our Parahood system※1, which not only stores the hood neatly when not in use, but also prevents discomfort by preventing water from pooling around the neckline. Sleeves have our new Block Fit Adjuster Cuffs to stay tightly sealed and comfortable even in the rain. The hem now has a new Cohaesive cord lock system※2 to make getting the fit right simpler and faster than ever.
※1 By incorporating a unique top opening zip, which we call Parazip, the hood can be kept closed when not in use, but opened quickly when conditions change.
※2 Developed by Cohaesive Garment Technology of Canada, this is a durable, integrated adjustment management system using special, welded parts to embed and integrate the cords that tighten hems and hoods into garment fabrics, making fit adjustments much simpler, more precise.
The hood can be kept closed when not in use, but opened quickly when conditions change through the incorporation of a unique top opening Parazip.
