Since its founding in 1993, Mountain Hardwear has aspired to outfit all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts with high-quality technical performance apparel. No matter if you’re a world-class climber or even just a weekend day-hiker, the California-based outlet has an offering perfectly suited to your requirements.

With the announcement of its all-new Exposure/2 Gore-Tex Pro LT Jacket, Mountain Hardwear has crafted its lightest, toughest shell to date. Based on the Exposure/2 Gore-Tex Pro, it’s been stripped down to the basics in order to ditch any excess weight. In practice, this means that it clocks in at a full 56 grams lighter than its predecessor. And when it comes to the construction, it features 3L GORE-TEX Pro fabric, a bluesign-approved material that’s both incredibly waterproof and also highly breathable. Add to that an adjustable hood for helmet compatibility, a set of oversized interior pockets for storage, as well as some underarm zips for ventilation, and you have a jacket that comes with everything you need and nothing you don’t. You can buy it for $450 from Mountain Hardwear’s website.
