I am wondering if this kind of jacket is designed to OffWidth/Chimney desert towers crack climbing ?

Hey Slim,

I would not say this piece was designed rubbing up against the harsh sandstone. As with canyoneering, offwidth/ chimney climbing will eat throw your clothes. But it does make you look like you accomplished something! For your top layer I would wear something that you don't mind beating up a little.
