Hyperlite Shell

A great technical jacket should obviously keep you protected from the elements, but an exceptional one should do all of that and more, but in a streamlined design that doesn't get in the way. 

Hyperlite Mountain Gear is expanding their range with a new technical jacket that incorporates ultra-rugged Dyneema fabric with eVent to create a piece that's highly breathable, water-resistant, and packs away into a pouch that's about the size of a small bag of chips. 

Depending on the size the jacket weighs an average of about 5.75 oz and it's loaded with features such as YKK Aquaguard zippers, a Polartec Power-Dry chin guard, and various adjustment points that add additional protection from the weather.
