For years Black Diamond has been making a name for itself as a leader in skiing and climbing gear. With many of the main designers being skiers and climbers themselves, they share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences have pushed then to make the best gear possible for their worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
Just in time for the Winter 2015 ski and climbing season, Black Diamond has released the Vapor Point Shell Jacket.
Designed for fast-moving alpinists and skiers who want to shave grams without sacrificing protection, the Black Diamond Vapor Point Shell is the lightest hardshell jacket in their line. Highly packable with a streamlined, articulated fit, the Vapor Point’s GORE-TEX® Active fabric provides fully waterproof and breathable protection on technical mountain routes. Integrated Cohaesive® cord-lock technology allows fast, one-handed adjustments.
Cohaesive is an innovative cord management technology that’s embedded directly into select GORE-TEX® shell jackets to provide quick and easy adjustments, even in the worst conditions. Cohaesive hardware is bonded directly to the jacket’s fabric, making it incredibly durable and easy to use even while wearing gloves.
