For the majority of mountain activities and for 90% of the time, POLARTEC® Power Shield® alone is the most comfortable and effective outerwear. Blocking 98% of the wind, highly breathable, water repellent and extremely abrasion resistant, the Sabretooth has phenomenal potential. The advantages of a softshell are obvious; stretch for active comfort, less rustle than a hard shell, warmth without weight and weather protection. Featuring classic Alpine features; adjustable hood, venting pockets and active tailored fit, the Sabretooth is an outerwear jacket that gets worn, not carried.
