Often when skiing or snowboarding, how much fun you have is directly related to how comfortable you are. If you’re too warm or not warm enough, it can make for a miserable outing, so when it comes to ski gear, one of the biggest challenges is finding clothing that’s breathable and water resistant.
The Black Diamond’s new Convergent Men’s Shell Jacket fits that bill. It’s lightweight and designed with a three-layer WindStopper Active membrane that’s hooked up with fully taped seams. It provides better water resistance than the comparable Induction and if offers the same amount of breathability.
Helmet Compatible Hood
The Black Diamond Convergent Men’s Shell Jacket is designed with a helmet compatible hood, a brushed microsuede collar, and water resistant zippers.
It’s the perfect combination to help stay dry, not too warm, and wear your helmet without bulky material making it hard to turn your head and without a gap letting in wind, cold or moisture.
It’s an ideal choice whether you’re climbing, skiing, snowboarding, or hiking.
The Convergent Shell coat is an outer layer that functions well in any conditions.
Whether you’re caught in a rain downpour while hiking or hit intense powder on the slopes, the Gore Windstopper which is taped like a full Gore-Tex product, keeps you dry with unbelievable water resistant properties and wind resistant capabilities while still retaining superior breathability.
The Black Diamond Convergent Men’s Shell helps you be prepared for any condition when you understand the basics of layering.
However, the one thing this new shell doesn’t include is the Cohesive Cord Lock Technology that debuted in Black Diamond’s Front Point Shell, but hopefully that will come along in the next model.
For now, the Convergent Shell is a perfect choice for your front-line shell on the mountain and trails.
