Black Diamond Sharp End Shell
Black Diamond Sharp End shell is a 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro hard-shell jacket designed to keep you dry and protected during whatever alpine pursuits take your fancy, be it ski touring, ski mountaineering or ice climbing. It’s super-durable, abrasion-resistant, lightweight and easy to pack, with a stripped down design that shaves off the grams but has just the right amount of functionality to keep you protected when conditions get rough.

Garments made with GORE-TEX® 3-layer fabric offer added durability without extra bulk. The reduced layers required mean less weight and more freedom of movement.
The Cohaesive System
The Black Diamond Cohaesive system uses a specially designed adhesive in combination with specially designed components to embed cord management systems and clever features directly into the fabric. This reduces weight and keeps the outline of the jacket clean and stylish. Fixtures using the Cohaesive system are also often easy to use with just one hand.
Gore Micro Grid backer technology
Gore’s new Micro Backer Technology is used on its 3-layer Gore-Tex fabrics. This very fine fabric with a slight grid pattern is designed to be lighter than previous scrims while still improving durability, breathability and sliding more easily over mid-layers.
