Named after the Japanese phonetic for “simple”, our new Shinpuru II Jacket is a lightweight and breathable alpine layer – ideal for year-round use when weight is critical. A GORE-TEX® Active shell eliminates moisture buildup to keep you dry as you climb. It's soft too, ensuring optimal comfort from the moment you leave camp. Drop-in mesh pockets allow you to store small essentials, and also double as core vents for added breathability during intense climbing sections.
