Why We Love It
Engineered to provide the ultimate lightweight wind protection in the mountains, tthis combines superior weather resistance and breathability with an ultralight design, so you're always ready for what Mother Nature throws at you. And feel good about the weather protection you're getting because this shell features a revolutionary environmentally friendly PFC-free water-repellent finish.
Where We Use It
Running and questionable weather conditions (or keeping it in our hydration vest...just in case).
Launching in partnership with Green Theme International, the Distance Wind Shell features GTT revolutionary Breathable Water Protection Technology, an environmentally friendly PFC-free water-repellant finish that is superior in performance compared to any other C-6, C-8, or C-0 DWR. This performance is only exceeded by its durability, as the GTI Technology is permanently hyper-fused to the individual fabric fibers, and there is no need to ever refresh the jacket with an additional spray or wash-in finish. The Distance Wind Shell is ultra-packable, making it a perfect emergency piece for mountain missions with a chest pocket that doubles as a stuff sack and clips to a harness with a carabiner clip loop. With its air permeable qualities designed for high-output activities, and robust weather resistance, the Distance Wind Shell is tailor-made for fast and light mountain adventures.
