How does this cope in high altitude conditions (aka hiking above 10,000 feet). I’m interested in using it during summertime, but still need something to deal with wind and cold.

Hey there Rory!

This jacket won't be affected by a higher altitude. It is made with Windwall fleece which feels soft to the touch and warms up quick! It is a polyester jacket so it will feel nice and durable. It is also very soft on the inside! This would be a great 3 season jacket! I think it would work great on cold summer nights, in the fall or the spring!
