Some of our best missions started before the sun came up, in those dark pre-dawn hours that ensured that the snow would be the deepest, the skies would be the clearest, and the coffee would taste the best.
The Darkstart Fusion Jacket is the ultimate active layer for high-intensity activities, to stay warm and dry on your next outdoor adventure.

This high-performance jacket starts with a high-density 4-way stretch nylon treated with the revolutionary PFAS-free EMPEL water protection that is highly protective against wind and light precipitation, while allowing moisture vapor to escape from the inside-out thanks to its shell fabric’s specialized 5cfm air-permeable properties.

In the sleeves and body, Lavalan Sport European wool insulation provides the ultimate combination of moisture management and thermoregulation, and low-profile double-weave grid-backed fusion zones under arms, at hem, and on hood allow for added breathability and decreased bulk and weight.

From a responsibility standpoint, you can feel good about the Darkstart beyond the PFAS-free fabrics thanks to its 100% recycled doubleweave zones and linings, as well as it’s natural wool insulation.
