Elemental protection, no matter the storms that come your way
The Archangel Kit allows you to balance speed and efficiency with elemental protection, no matter the storms that come your way. The technology, design, and testing behind the Archangel was built for big-mountain ascents, making it a trusted solution for any objective preceding the alpine. If you refuse to settle for anything but the best, you need the Archangel.
This kit was built in collaboration with Outdoor Research Ambassador Graham Zimmerman, whose fast-and-light philosophy has rewarded him with a Piolet d’Or - the alpine climbing equivalent of an Olympic gold medal. Graham’s design ethos is all about balance, and the Archangel Kit reflects this with its balance of protection and agility in a hybrid-mapped construction.
The hood, arms, and body of the Archangel Jacket are GORE-TEX Pro 3L, providing gold standard protection from the elements, and making a piece of equipment that fully seals out any storm. This is complemented with a trim cut and stretch panels along the upper back that enhance mobility, allow quicker movements, all but ensuring speed and precision.
