The age-old puzzle of the high alpine’s unpredictable weather is finally solved by the Black Diamond Access Hoody, which gives you the ultimate in packable protection. Constructed from a Pertex outer and body-mapped, migration-resistant PrimaLoft Gold Insulation, it marries durability that can handle the beatings that the mountains dish out with a trim profile for full packability. With gusseted, breathable underarms designed with Schoeller and a smaller concentration of insulation, you’ll be able to work through high-output pursuits without swapping layers. An elastic, climbing-helmet-compatible hood and a pocket that packs the jacket and clips to your harness give the Access Hoody complete versatility.
Ultralight and incredibly versatile, the Alpine Start Hoody uses Schoeller stretch-woven softshell fabric to provide highly breathable, weather resistant protection for alpinists and other weight-conscious climbers. Gusseted construction allows complete freedom of movement, and the hood fits over your climbing helmet for added weather protection when the wind picks up in the afternoon. This highly packable jacket stows in its own chest pocket when not in use, and a carabiner loop lets you clip it to your harness and take it up a route.
A midlayer for anything from ski tours to alpine ascents, the CoEfficient Hoody features Polartec® Power Dry® fleece with a gridded interior for increased wicking performance and added breathability. The under-the-helmet hood and full-length zipper let you regulate temperature on the go, so you don’t find yourself overheating a half hour into the day. A slim cut helps the CoEfficient Hoody fit comfortably under your shell, and with a redsigned, trim fit, this layer takes up little space in your pack.
After 60 meters of hard-fought progress brings you to the standstill that is the belay, the Black Diamond Cold Forge Hoody preserves precious warmth. Filled with PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Down Blend for the ultimate combination of warmth, packability and weather-resistance, the Cold Forge Hoody is the ideal midweight insulator for done-in-a-day winter routes and long, frigid ski tours. The adjustable, helmet-compatible hood blocks spindrift, and two drop pockets secure your climbing gloves while belaying your partner.
Designed to extend the technical midlayer’s comfort range across changes in weather, season and activity, the Black Diamond Deployment Hybrid Hoody employs a mixed-materials approach for summer alpine expeditions, mid-winter ski tours and everything in between. By strategically combining ultralight Schoeller® softshell fabric and PrimaLoft® Silver Hi-Loft insulation with our merino-blend Deployment fabric, the Deployment Hybrid strikes a functional balance between insulation and breathability that eliminates unnecessary layering adjustments throughout the day. An integrated mesh lining helps manage moisture on steep approaches, crux pitches and technical descents, while two zippered chest pockets ride above your harness and store small essentials.
There’s a fine line between splitter blues skies and afternoon thunderstorms in the mountains. That’s why we designed this streamlined, stretch rain shell.

Optimized for mobility, the FineLine has underarm gussets and a stretch fabric, which increases the shell’s comfort and durability during fast and light climbing missions. Featuring an adjustable, climbing-helmet-compatible hood and a waterproof center front zipper to keep out unwanted moisture, the FineLine packs into its own chest pocket. Clip it to your harness with the carabiner clip loop and rest assured that if the skies crack open, you’ll stay dry.

Quickly deployed on north-facing rock routes, blustery alpine ridgelines and cold mornings in camp, the Black Diamond Diamond Forge Hoody is a highly packable insulation piece featuring 700-fill, RDS® certified down that is DWR-treated for added weather resistance.
