Wonderful warmth and magnificent mobility.

Instead of investing in an insulated ski touring jacket, an ice climbing jacket, and a light alpine climbing jacket, just grab the Black Diamond Access Hybrid Men's Insulated Hooded Jacket. It's designed to handle pretty much any alpine environment, with a Pertex Quantum shell that's been treated with a DWR coating, Scholler stretch-woven and breathable side panels with a NanoSpehere water-repellent treatment, and PrimaLoft Silver hi-loft synthetic insulation to keep you warm even if you get a little damp. If the weather picks up, snug the helmet-compatible hood up around your noggin, cinch down the drawcord hem, and keep on keepin' on.

  • Pertex Quantum fabric with a DWR coating
  • Schoeller stretch-woven softshell panels with NanoSphere technology
  • PrimaLoft Silver hi-loft synthetic insulation
  • Adjustable, helmet-compatible hood
  • Zippered hand and chest pockets
  • Internal drop-in pockets
  • Stretch cuffs
  • Drawcord hem

Got a few compliments. And it's warm!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have "last year's model" of this jacket, purchased from Backcountry. I bought it in September, when the summer days were shortening but the heat lingered. Out of the box, and over a t-shirt, it was too hot! I remember being pretty amazed at the insulation value of this fabric. Didn't use it again until a long peakbagging trip in October and November 2014. Up to the wintry highest points of Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and Arizona, it kept me snug in 20-35 degree temps when paired with a long-sleeved t-shirt and (once) with a fleece pullover. Keep in mind that I was moving quickly.

The real test came in January, when I took it to climb the Mexican volcanoes. I wanted something lightweight and compressible (for the many warm non-mountaineering days when it would stay in my pack), but SUPER warm for the anticipated 10 degree temps at 18,000 feet on Pico de Orizaba. At 1am inside the hut, I put on a merino wool shirt, a pullover fleece, and the BD jacket. At 4am at 16,000 feet, I was a little cool. Like being outside shirtless when it's 60 degrees out. At 7am at 18,000 feet, I was fine. The sun was rising and my jacket was working. Life was good.

Back in Montana, six different people said a version of "nice jacket!" to me. I never get complimented on my clothes, or really on any personal aesthetic characteristics. This jacket looks good!

More things: fits snugly but still layers well. Virtually no signs of wear after 6 months of heavy use, except that the "Black Diamond" on the sleeve is peeling off. The hood is even compatible with a ski helmet, and I have a big head. The zippers are very appealing to use. I'd recommend this!

Very nice!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This fits like a t-shirt and is equally comfortable and stretchy (almost like a second skin, but not at all confining). Definitely athletic/fit cut. That said, if you want to wear multiple layers under it, size up. I can get a thin fleece or waffle top under it (I bought it in the same size as my t-shirts). A sweater or thicker fleece is pushing it. Of course, it is a soft shell so you will likely be wearing it over just a base layer or you would be wearing something bulkier instead of this. It is great for high activity in cold weather and handles the wind well too. The side panels are thin and you may feel the coldness of the wind on the panelsbut it is not necessarily uncomfortable. I did not get to test this in wet weather but under the faucet it sheds water very well. The coat breathes well. This will be my "go to" while on the move during winter backpacking and I suspect it would be great while climbing/mountaineering. My down coat does fit over this well.

Very comfortable and packs well.
