Live Your Adventure®

With stretch, breathability, and weather resistance, the versatile range of soft shell jackets is legendary. But the Sandstone Hooded Jacket is as an even more indispensable utility piece due to a low-pro stretch hood that fits under a climbing helmet. Targeted technical features focus the performance on moving fast in the alpine.

SOFT SHELL

The primary benefit of a shoft shell is that the fabric sheds weather but still stretches and breathes at an elevated rate during mountain activity. This performance attribute is why First Ascent stretch-woven soft shells are such perfect choices for cold-weather activities that require constant temperature regulation and liberating stretch.

STORMREPEL®

Durable, Water-Repellent Finish

Our StormRepel® DWR finish sheds moisture so it doesn't soak into the fabric.

"My favorite jacket for everything. I loved the versatility of the original Sandstone, and by adding a stretchy hood, we have extended the range of this soft shell to the highest of mountains."

      Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Sandstone™ Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

      I use this jacket year round. By far my most versatile coat. It is easy to pack, beads water in light rain. It's incredibly breathable but also functions well at blocking the wind. I have a lot of different specialized gear, but this jacket goes everywhere with me. It can be used as an outer layer in warm weather or a mid layer in cooler weather. I purchased this jacket for a summer climb of mount rainier and it served me very well as a mid layer under my hard shell in the rain/snow on the way up and as my outer shell when the temperature was 50 degrees (F) the following day. The stretchy fabric allows for ample articulation/movement. I have also worn this skiing, hunting and for riding my dual sport motorcycle (under my jersey or riding coat). I cannot speak highly enough about this jacket.

      My wife found this in the rock climbers' clothing. I use it to bicycle in cool to cold weather and love it. This is my second just in case something happens to the first. This is a gem.

          Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Sandstone™ Soft Shell Hooded Jacket:

          Awesome jacket. Exactly what I was looking for: lightweight (it virtually disappears!), lots of stretch, lots of breathibility; something to throw on in the shoulder season as the temps start to drop. Bonus, it layers perfectly with the Microtherm Stormdown jacket to make a formidable jacket system that can handle a range of temps, wind, light rain, and exertion levels without adding bulk or weight. Somehow either jacket can be worn equally easily under or over the other. Sorcery!
