Black Diamond Liquid Point Shell Update Men
The Black Diamond Liquid Point Shell Update Men is the newest version of Black Diamond's lightest GORE-TEX® jacket, designed to make your trips to the mountains faster and simpler. With minimalist features and GORE's Paclite® technology designed for packability, the Black Diamond Liquid Point Shell Update Men provides reliable waterproofness and breathability in a jacket that's highly compressible and designed to be stuffed into tight spaces in backpacks as emergency protection. With minimalism in mind, the Liquid Point Shell Update Men features a helmet-compatible hood for use when mountaineering or climbing, and two-way armpit vents for heat dumping in warmer wet weather or intense activities. Black Diamond have also decided to use a primary fabric that is sustainably Bluesign® approved to promote the environmentally-friendly production of outdoor garments.
On outdoor missions where a light weight is key and space is to a minimum, waterproof jackets can sometimes be a hinderance, especially if it turns out they are not needed. The Black Diamond Liquid Point Shell Update Men uses durably waterproof GORE-TEX® in its lightest Paclite® construction to make a jacket that won't weigh your bag down, and won't have to be left behind to save on space, allowing you to always have convenient waterproof protection when you need it.

GORE-TEX® PacLite® Technology
Durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable, PacLite® products are of an extremely lightweight, packable, and minimal construction, designed for any activity that requires space and weight saving in a jacket that can be compactly stuffed into bags and backpacks. To achieve this level of compressibility, a thin 2.5-layer fabric is used, and the outer shell of the material is covered by a protective layer made of an oleophobic (oil hating) substance and carbon that makes the jacket much more pliable. Special GORE-SEAM® tape technology also ensures that all seams are 100% waterproof.
An ultra-thin coating applied to technical garments as the first line of defence against wet weather. This coating creates thousands of densely packed polymer “hairs” that prevent water from reaching the surface of the jacket and encourage water to merge together and bead off.
