Our lightest alpine climbing shell with Dry.Q Elite technology. The Quasar Lite is a forward-thinking 2.5-layer jacket that's built for speed. It combines a revolutionary air-permeable membrane with Dry.Q Elite technology, which instantly expels excess heat and moisture, to keep you dry and comfortable even on the most rapid and difficult ascents.
Ideal for backpacking or hiking in inclement weather, the Quasar Lite Jacket combines protection from the elements with superb ventilation, this ensures you are kept dry and comfortable both inside and out.
The Quasar Lite Jacket utilizes Mountain Hardwear's very own Dry.Q Active technology. This is used in the most premium waterproof-breathable products. It offers the most comfortable level of breathability by combining high moisture-vapor transfer rates and air permeability at all body temperatures. Traditional waterproof-breathable technologies require high levels of user exertion (high body heat) before the breathability kicks in. Dry.Q Elite is instant-on technology. It starts breathing the instant you put it on, regardless of temperature or level of exertion for waterproof, windproof performance like you've always wanted, guaranteed.
Further features of the jacket include a full, center-front PU zipper which keeps moisture out and adjusts easily from top-down or bottom-up. A 3-way adjustable helmet hood features a features a wire brim to hold its shape whilst Velcro® cuffs seal away the elements and dual PU zippered pockets keep hands warm and valuables secure.
Along with the nature of the 40D face fabric, to enhance breathability the jacket features two zippered chest pockets that can not only be used as storage but double up as core vents.
