Starting up the precipitous trail to Huayna Picchu you leave the crowds behind and enter the tropical, high-altitude world of mist, cloud and wind. This is where the Sidesend Jacket excels. Its soft-shell design blocks wind, sheds moisture and holds your heat when the day’s plans go into night. The Sidesend has a lightweight yet sturdy feel. Made with a stretchy fabric that combines a dash of spandex with recycled polyester, it manages a wide range of weather conditions while still maintaining a comfortable level of breathability for aerobic activities. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish blocks moisture. Inside, a soft, brushed tricot backer wicks perspiration to keep you dry when you’re pushing the pace uphill. Features include a stand-up collar; two zippered handwarmer pockets; a chest pocket; two internal drop-in pockets; and microfleece-lined neck, wind flap and cuffs for a skin-friendly feel. Hip length.
