Why We Like The First Light Hybrid Hooded Jacket

Whether we're wearing it alone during an early season multi-pitch or as a midlayer during a backcountry tour, the Men's Black Diamond First Light Hybrid Hooded Jacket always comes along for the adventure with stretchy performance and breathable warmth. Black Diamond uses Primaloft Silver to keep you warm everywhere from windswept ridges to snowy skin tracks, then adds merino blend panels for breathability that lets you work hard without working up a sweat. The low-profile hood can be tucked beneath a helmet if the wind picks up, while a durable water repellent finish sheds light flurries if the weather takes an unexpected turn.


  • Hybrid insulator for backcountry tours or early morning climbs
  • Synthetic fill provides warmth in wet or dry conditions
  • Water repellent finish sheds light rain and snow
  • Wool-nylon blend panels promote breathable comfort during active use
  • Underarm gussets and stretch construction offer easy movements
  • Low-profile cuffs and high neck keep out drafts on colder mornings
  • Packs down into chest pocket for easy stashing when the sun appears

Alaska Sim

Had to return, it was a bit snug. I did get the black one, fits like a glove, wear it all the time. Disappointing the blue one didn't fit like the black one.

It’s not great against the rain and decent windy/cold conditions. That said it’s very comfortable and it doesnt keep you hostage to all that sweating when walking and hiking, as the sleeves use a different material then the torso that allows for it. I’ve always tucked my gloves under my sleeves at the wrist level and this jacket makes that super easy with some elastic bands at the cuffs.

Decent, but not worth the full price

I got this to use for a base layer while in the mountains. It's pretty warm for what it is, but my main concern is that it's already starting to keep the sweat smell. I worry about how it will last. Fit is good, long to the waist, long arms.

Amazing hoody!

This jacket is incredibly versatile. It’s thick enough to be utilized as a coat on colder days but is also low profile to be used as climbing and hiking gear. I would recommend this hoody to get over and over again!

Great Midlayer

Bought this for winter jogging & hiking and it's a great for that, as well as just running errands or kicking around town. Have not climbed with it yet, but definitely has the mobility needed.

Great hoody

Super warm and light weight. A little bigger than most size M I'm used to. Love the look of it as well.

Portland weather

Got the First Light Hoody for my college son living in Portland. He needed to up his game and start to dress like an adult, so the First Light Hoody was the natural choice. Loves it! Light, warm, and keeps the light rain off as he moves from class to class. He travels quite a bit for his college job and coming home to Colorado and travel is a breeze! Can stow the First Light Hoody in his backpack and grab and go when needed.

Nice jacket

Fit is not the best, narrow shoulders and larger in the mid section.
