      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

It’s a beauty >>>NEW and NEVER USED<<< and one that I purchased in 2000 as a “reserve” when my jacket/parka at that time was due to be “retired”….one of those could not resist moments. It has all the features an alpinist would want when I purchased it and is a quality product by Mt.Hardwear. Now that I’m dealing with multiple myeloma cancer I can see it will never be use by me.







Waterproof, Very breathable 3-ply Gore-Tex® XCR fabric with taped seams and DWR finish

Attached, Adjustable Optimal Visibility Ergo Hood; Helmet-compatible with laminated visor

Adjustable, stretch Powder Skirt

Pit zips for additional ventilation & underarm gusset keeps the jacket in place when you lift your arms

One-handed hood and hem draw cords for quick adjustments

Napoleon Pockets right and left and two Chest pockets make access to essentials easy

Interior pockets right and left for gear OR water bottles

A six-piece sleeve (both the lining and the shell are articulated) provides unrestricted range of motion for tool swinging and pole planting

Velcro adjustable cuffs

Soft Polartec100™-lined chin guard eliminates zipper chafe

Velcro sealed Zippers (2 each Top and Bottom) with gutter sealed zipper shield

Lots of room to layer over layers (below pic layered over Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover Jacket)


Weight: 29.4oz/.83kg


New price I paid in 2000 was $425, I would be willing to sell this for:

After looking at the most recent copy of the BP Magazine I have changed the posting to the present terminology of HARD SHELL rather than PARKA. This is a great deal for anyone looking at HARD SHELLS.
