From alpine climbing to cross-country skiing – in the Prodigy Jacket you’re the mastermind. A winter-weight Leadville, the Prodigy Jacket’s hybrid construction uses windproof GORE® WINDSTOPPER® for maximal warmth, breathability and weather resistance in moderate conditions. Venting side panels amplify breathability and Angel-Wing Movement™ allows functional range of motion. Tweak the fit with asymmetrical adjustable cuffs. The center front two way zipper sliders and Pack Pockets™ offer easy access to ropes, harness or waistbelts.
WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer windproof and breathability, combining the comfort of a soft mid-layer and the water resistance of a shell in one garment. Our WINDSTOPPER® collection keeps you comfortable while providing the freedom of movement you need for enhanced performance in a wide range of activities and weather conditions.
WINDSTOPPER® is a bonded 3 layer protection. The outer layer is high quality water repellent polyester micro fleece; the middle layer is ultra-light WINDSTOPPER® membrane and the inner layer contains polyester tricot knitting.
With its 3-layer construction, the WINDSTOPPER® membrane is bonded between a high performance fabric on one side and a quick-drying polyester fleece on the other. The durable water repellent finish offers additional weather protection.
WINDSTOPPER® protects your body's warmth from the chilling effects of wind and weather and prevents overheating and perspiration build-up by allowing moisture vapor to easily escape. The unique WINDSTOPPER® membrane totally stops wind from penetrating the fabric while allowing moisture to release unhindered for 2X more breathability than comparable windproof products.
WINDSTOPPER® performs well in outdoor activities, such as hiking, backpacking, cycling, hunting, mountain sports, skiing, snowboarding and trekking where weather conditions might include strong winds, light snow and rain. It retains heat not moisture and is 2 1/2 times warmer in 30mph wind than traditional fleece with no loss to breathability. And because its 'easy care', you can wash it in your machine.
M2 Softshells offer a great balance between weather resistance, breathability and thermal protection, excellent for a wide range of aerobic activities in moderate conditions.
DriClime® mesh is a bi-component denier gradient dimensional knit made of two different denier yarns. Using extremely fine deniers this knit is extremely light with superior wicking performance.
The larger outer yarns are a special filament yarn with an open capillary structure, which pulls the moisture away from the skin to the backside of the mesh where it spreads to increase evaporation. The dimensional structure of the knit combined with the smaller denier yarns on the backside of the mesh increase the surface area allowing for greater moisture holding capacity.
This technology increases the interior comfort of the garment by enabling the wearer to feel less clammy and more comfortable over a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The mesh prevents condensation from collecting on the skin no matter what the level of activity due to its 3 dimensional structure. The dimensional knit structure also helps by spreading the moisture over a larger surface area maximizing the efficiency of the evaporate process. This technology solves the problem of condensation and internal comfort that even the most breathable of fabrics have problems with during high intensity activities.
