    Ed Viesturs, America's premier mountaineer, discusses the thought process behind building the First Ascent BC-200 Jacket - a 3-layer, waterproof/breathable hard shell with 20K/25K performance and complete welded-seam construction that's under 11 oz. AND under $200. All the protection of a seaman's storm jacket. Yet so breathable and lightweight you can wear it anywhere, any day of the year. Perfect for hiking, climbing, cycling or any other time when you're active and the weather's nuking. Quite possibly the most versatile gear you'll ever own.
