Dawn Patrol Hybrid Shell Jacket

If you haven't already guessed by its name, the Dawn Patrol Hybrid Shell Jacket loves fresh snow, early morning starts, and breaking trail. Designed to keep you comfortable on the skintrack as well as the way down, it features a unique hybrid construction. Highly breathable 4-stretch softshell is placed beneath the arms, while the chest, shoulders, and hood remain impenetrable to snow. So while you wouldn't want to be jumping into any lakes expecting to stay dry, it's more than ample protection for that fluffy white stuff—and we think a little extra internal comfort on the ascent more than makes up for this.


  • A hybrid ski shell destined for backcountry tours
  • Waterproof panels offset by stretchy, breathable sections
  • Highly durable water repellent takes care of sneaky moisture
  • Underarm gussets and 4-way stretch ensure full mobility
  • Built-in center mesh panel and perforated collar vent body heat
  • Harness-compatible chest pockets large enough to carry skins
  • Internal wrist gaiters seal out the snow and secure sleeves
  • Slim fit is low-bulk without constricting mobility
  • Item #BLDZ999

Love this shell, it's so light weight and really breaks the wind, so many options for ventilation - a must have for any winter mountain adventure.

Excessively tight in armpits

Size Bought:
5' 8"

I'm 5'8", 137 pounds and I have an athletic build due to climbing and mountaineering. I ordered a medium and the armpits were uncomfortably tight over a tee-shirt. I added a layer and it was so uncomfortable. People doing outdoor activities want to move freely and in the backcountry it's essential to be able to layer with midlayers under a shell. Please construct jackets with ample room in the shoulders.

Crappy Zipper

Wore this jacket 5 times. Washed it on delicate and the main zipper and zipper pull blew up. Pretty weak zipper.

New favorite jacket

I wear this all the time. Love this jacket. Layers comfortably. Marked off one star because it doesn’t have pockets to put my hands in

Great Shell!!

I originally bought the BD recon shell. It was also amazing, but I needed something for the backcountry. The vents are big and were great on a sunny day of touring. Pockets on the inside and outside are big. It's breathable and allows good movement. Overall love this jacket!
