Benjamin Herndon's Bio

Raised by a family of metaphorical mountain goats, I would gladly skip a trip to anywhere urban for a jaunt in the back country. Hell, I'd skip my best friend's wedding for a good alpine loop. Sorry Chris, no hard feelings.

A jacket of heroic proportions
5 5

This is the ultimate standalone piece, much like Hercules was as a Disney original (mainly because of Hades?). The 02 fabric breathes far superior to other softshell fabrics such as regular powershield -- which means it's also a kick-ass layering piece. Despite not being highly windproof (though pretty resistant), the high-loft fleece provides adequate warmth to keep you moving up and your sweat moving out. I maiden-voyaged the jacket up Hood and didn't take it off once. The fuzzy hood was almost as nice as the sweater-on-my-insides (a.k.a. whiskey) that we downed at the summit. It also fits nicely over a climbing helmet. The jacket length is dialed for my 6' 4" 185 lb lean frame (the drawstrings are necessary to bring the waist in some). Teamed with my Alpha LT, it makes for an epic duo. I really don't see ever finding a more glorious softshell/fleece. I suppose that's why it's the "Hercules."
