Ready for city use and mountain abuse.
Whether you're seeking solace by way of a solitary hike up and over snowy ridgelines or you're navigating the cross-country track, the Klattermusen Women's Einride 2.0 Jacket provides protection from wind, light precipitation, and cool air. Fashioned with a women-specific cut, this jacket ensures maximum versatility and long-term use thanks to its thoughtful constitution.
Constructed with a fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment and organic cotton fabric, the Einride is windproof, water-resistant, and breathable, which makes it an ideal backcountry, hiking, or climbing staple. The drop-tail design and function-meets-fashion silhouette discourages wayward weather from sneaking its way through to your baselayers while the adjustable hem, cuffs, and hood provide a fine-tuned fit and can be easily replaced in the event that one of the cords becomes damaged. Additionally, the jacket is equipped with two harness-compatible pockets that are lined with mesh, which incidentally double as both a stuff sack for the jacket (when it's not in use) and quick ventilation when temps start to heat up. You'll find the Einride is fully furnished with a removable whistle and compass within the chest pocket; this connecting strap also encourages you to don the Einride as a lumbar pack upon stuffing it into the stuff sack rather than having to store it within your pack.

The most surprising aspect of this jacket is that it's silent. I'm normally used to hearing synthetic fabric rub on itself whenever anything is wind/waterproof. Not here - the touch and feel of the fabric is something else. Light rain showers, the jacket is fine. But it isn't meant for downpours.
I'm rarely in a setting where I need to be protected from heavy rain for hours at a time, so it doesn't really bother me. In sacrificing 100% waterproofness, this jacket is quite breathable so I never get the clammy feeling from wearing waterproof items. There is proper ventilation as well, so I'm never too hot. I believe the early explorers of the arctic wore cotton, so maybe they were onto something.
