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.
Active: Our most athletic fit. Close to body without restricting mobility. Designed to fit over baselayers and lightweight midlayers.
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.
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."
