A 4 a.m. start doesn't bother you one bit. However, an inefficient dawn patrol bugs you more than having to wear a pair of soul-sucking pantyhose on a Friday night, which is why the Black Diamond Women's Dawn Patrol Hooded Jacket is the go-to in your outerwear quiver. More specifically, the Dawn Patrol is a jacket built for powder-obsessed, backcountry addicts like yourself.
Touting a lightweight construction that makes accessing those drool-worthy chutes feel akin to a walk in the park (or something like that), the Dawn Patrol features a four-way stretch fabric that enables you to keep moving up the skin-track and shimmying down your fall-line. Additionally, the Dawn Patrol features a slim fit for smooth integration with your backpack or climbing harness, while the DWR treatment fends off light precipitation and moisture alike. Two internal drop pockets accommodate an extra set of gloves, and the two harness-compatible hand pockets allow you to access your necessities on the fly.
