It's a cold day, yet the skies are clear and you're sheltered from the elements by the rock itself. As you make the top-out you're greeted by cold gusts of wind, you zip up your jacket and set about making an anchor.
Forget the on again, off again, on again, off again; it’s time to think about what you’re doing, not what you’re wearing.
Morphosis means change, evolution, and adaptation. That’s why it’s the perfect name for a jacket designed to be comfortable no matter your activity, temperature, and effort level... Read more
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 which is just about noticeable in the strongest of winds yet sacrifices little protection. Zoned gridded fleece leaves the under-arms and side panels uninsulated, letting you dump heat when working hard without losing wind protection. A full-length zip gives you the option to vent when necessary.
Finally, with lightweight construction, Morphosis accords you the freedom of movement necessary for natural climbing,hill-walking, riding, and wild arm-swinging.
The Morphosis can be worn over a base layer in warmer temperatures and for high output activities like trail running, or layered over a fleece for colder conditions and slower work rates.

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.
