Sports like alpine climbing, ice climbing, ski mountaineering, and touring are altogether different monsters than your average climbing or skiing sessions. That's why Black Diamond teamed up with Schoeller to give you the ideal protective layer with its Men's Dawn Patrol Hybrid Shell Jacket. Its StretchWoven softshell fabric covers your body with extreme durability, stretch, and breathability. And Black Diamond coated the shell with NanoSphere Technology to resist water, dirt, and even your own oily skin while you perform. Black Diamond also mapped the jacket with a three-layer waterproof laminate to keep you dry in specific areas that are most likely to get damp.

A slim fit pulls the Dawn Patrol Hybrid close to your body for optimal comfort with a harness on. It features an adjustable hood that either slides over your helmet or cinches across your head to prevent those blustery breezes from blowing it off. Hook-and-loop cuffs and a drawcord at the hem keep the sleeves and hem in place while you reach past technical cruxes on your route. And a stretchy internal pocket with a cord port lets you jam out to your favorite tunes while you climb up those powder-capped peaks and then bomb down.

My favorite shell

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

I've used this jacket numerous times on ice climbs, mixed couloirs, and multi-day mountaineering trips. Breathes great and keeps snow and light rain out. I haven't used it in a downpour yet, so I can't speak to that. It has a fitted, athletic cut that tucks into a harness without bunching up over it so it's easy to see and access gear on your harness. The softshell back and sides make it super easy to move and climb in without extra fabric to get in the way.

As for sizing, I'm small - 5'4"/125lbs with slightly longer arms and an athletic build and the small works great for me.

Great design, great quality.


Amazing Quality Outerwear from BD

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I wore this jacket on a rainy ski day this past saturday. I had worn it climbing a couple of times, but more as a weather resitant windbreaker than a true "shell" prior to that. Amazingly, water beaded and just "fell" off of not only the 3 layer fabrics so smartly placed over the front top of my core and shoulders and the top of my arms, but even on the stretch sofshell fabric on the torso as well. I skied for 3 hours in a rain snow mix (I live in tahoe and its early) and was Gore Tex style dry.

I must say, owning several pieces of BD clothing that I've been very impressed by the quality and make of their cloting. Its as good as anything I've seen.

Their clothes have an athletic cut, so don't expect baggy style. And as a climbing company, their stuff is borderline minimalist so expect light and no frills construction. I'm 6'1" and 170 and the large fits perfectly.
