christopher B.wrote a review of Black Diamond Alpine Start Hooded Jacket - Men's on April 12, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
It's 100% no Doubt the best lightweight shell on the market, hands down. I cannot describe in words the awesomeness of this jacket. Black diamond is using this Swedish company and the fabric is amazing!!! it's naturally water resistant and every time you wash the fabric it regains its water resistance so it's not a chemical that's sprayed on like all the other water-resistant jackets, that eventually wears off, this fabric is created with a natural plant based nanoparticle that is water resistant. And the winning touch, mechanical stretch...Perfect lightweight windbreaker/shell.
