Whether you're a flatlander or you live at altitude, packing for a foray at Ouray requires the right gear. Smash the Millet Men's Belay Device Jacket into its personal stuff suck, throw it in your gear bag, and hustle down the jetway because the plane won't wait for you. This lightweight, hardy jacket features a dual-zip front zipper and harness-friendly hand pockets for active ice and mixed climbing ease.
Ripstop fabric stops rock snags and branch scratches in their tracks. One level of protection is good, but crank the volume on shred-stopping and you can climb with a clean slate regardless of what happened the day before. DWR turns spitty snow and ice shards into misty memories. Dry is nice, but when ice gets too cold, dinner plates turn from delectable to dangerous. The Belay Device jacket can't control the temperature outside, but Primaloft Sport insulation keeps the temps inside the jacket toasty so you stay safely warm.
Preformed elbows take away one piece of resistance when you're swinging tools or securing screws. The hem adjusts to seal out spits and chilly breezes. Hand-warmer pockets placed well above your hips mean you can warm your paws without losing your harness. A high collar zips to your chin without turning your face skin into a raw mess of zipper rash. This thin puffy not only keeps you warm, but also looks good enough to compensate for your climbing partner's poor pitches.
