The only constant is change – and that's particularly true of the weather in the mountains. Down in the valley it was an agreeable 25°, while up at the first pass road it's a chilly 3° above zero and drizzling. But because we're all Scouts at heart, the lightweight Ryke Hardshell Jacket is always to hand. Ceramic coating on the inside of the 2.5-layer fabric works intelligently with the welded seams to deliver effective protection against wind and rain. Breathability comes courtesy of underarm inserts for optimum climate control.
