Ascending Insulated Shell.

The women’s ASCENDANT Jacket takes lightweight shell warmth to the next level in a cold-weather top for the trails or the town. Polartec Alpha Direct insulation packs that warming punch and wicks excess moisture away. A Pertex Microlight 20D ripstop outer is stretch-woven to mirror your movements while allowing your body to breathe free. The centre-front zip has a protective inner storm flap to stop element penetration. A zip chest pocket and dual handwarmer pockets take care of storage. Low-Pro binding cuffs keep the sleeves free of wind, and the elastic drawcord hem further secures the fit. The key clip makes things worry-free.
