Black Diamond's warmest Dawn Patrol piece.
It's a bluebird day and you're getting ready for a ski touring session. The Black Diamond Men's Dawn Patrol Softshell Jacket has Schoeller StretchWoven softshell that offers the right amount of warmth when the sun is overhead and the right amount of stretch so you can move across those powder-capped valleys. The fabric is also incredibly durable and breathable to keep you comfortable for years to come. Black Diamond coated the fabric with NanoSphere Technology to resist water, dirt, and even oil from your skin.
A slim fit pulls the Dawn Patrol close to your body in order to retain more warmth and reduce bulk. A high collar seals out cold drafts better than a hood, and both the adjustable cuffs and hem keep the jacket from moving around your body while you move across the mountains. And an internal media pocket has a headphone port so you can listen to music while you comfortably, and warmly, ski across your favorite areas.

Awesome slim fit jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I purchased the medium from Backcountry and it came just in time for my ski trip. I'm 6'2 and 175 lb and the jacket fits true to size, the cut allows for a good range of motion and keeps you warm enough for spring. The neck is cut a little wider than most jackets, but thats to allow for a fleece underneath.
The Schoeller material is excellent for moving around freely, and is primarily meant for fair weather.
great look/feel. not very windproof
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
Loved the fit and finish on this jacket but it was not windproof at all. Not sure what the designed for but I prefer a softshell that doesnt let the wind through. went back to my trusty North Face Apex jacket. Im sure someone has a perfect application for it but at $250 its not worth it for me.
