Lightweight and extremely proficient in any high-alpine situation, Columbia's Peak 2 Peak sports an innovative 3-layer fabric that’s completely waterproof, windproof, and ultrabreathable. And, it's an Outside Gear of the Year winner!
Clean, thoughtfully engineered lines provide a striking framework for the technology inside the Columbia Peak 2 Peak II shell: a sleek interior with a bonded liner, fully taped seams, and Omni-Dry — an extremely air-permeable waterproof fabric that diffuses the moisture vapors you generate while still shedding water in the worst of conditions. For times when your heart rate is really in the red, zip open the aptly placed underarm vents and let the fresh air flow in. Articulated elbows provide a natural fit and superior mobility. Hand pockets and a security pocket at the left shoulder all but disappear thanks to Columbia's Invizzip technology.
The most breathable waterproof technology designed to keep you dry during highly aerobic activity, whatever the weather. This extremely air permeable waterproof fabric transfers the moisture vapors you generate out of the garment at an extremely high rate, while still shedding the elements in the worst conditions. Omni-Dry is the ultimate in waterproof technology for the outdoors. During physical activity, increased body temperature can cause perspiration. In garments with low breathability, this results in condensation causing the wearer to feel damp, clammy or even wet. This is often mistaken for leaky or faulty construction, and is always uncomfortable. With Omni-Dry®, air is able to circulate through the fabric, helping to regulate the conditions in the garment and keep excess moisture from collecting inside, while still maintaining its wind blocking properties. This is achievable because the Omni-Dry® membrane is highly air permeable (100cc/minute vs. 0cc/minute for Gore-Tex®) and extremely thin and lightweight (7 grams per yard vs. 40 grams per yard in Gore-Tex®).
