Description

Morphosis means change, evolution, and adaptation. The Morphosis jacket is designed to be comfortable whatever your activity, temperature, or effort level.

  • Highly breathable, wind resistant and water shedding outer fabric
  • Zones of grid fleece around the core and arms for insulation
  • Fleece-free panels under the arms/sides to dump heat and moisture

When a windshell is too sweaty and a fleece won’t cut out the wind on its own, that’s where the Morphosis comes into its own. The outer fabric is more breathable than a completely windproof shell, allowing 6 CFM of airflow - just about noticeable in the strongest of winds while sacrificing little protection.

Zones of gridded fleece around the core leaves your under-arms and the side panels uninsulated, letting you dump heat when working hard, without losing wind protection.

The hood-free smock-design is is lighter and more comfortable for wearing under harnesses or rucksack straps without a rigid full-length front zip. But the Morphosis Smock still has plenty of venting capability, with its deep front zip.

The Morphosis can be worn over a base layer in warmer temperatures and high output activities like trail running, or layered over a fleece for colder conditions and slower work rates.

With it's super light softshell-like construction, the Morphosis provides all the freedom of movement you need for climbing, hill-walking and riding.

Wild UK Tests Out the Morphosis Half-Zip

Mine has been my constant companion on the crag, as it easily clips to the back of my harness when not in use, and comes into its own on those chilly belay ledges.
