The Quasar Lite Jacket is Mountain Hardwear’s lightest and most packable alpine hardshell. In fact, it's so functional it's remained pretty much unchanged for 2016. Made from 2.5-layer Dry Q Elite, it's lightweight, but also durable, breathable and waterproof, with minimalist features that make it ideal for alpine climbing, hiking and mountaineering. As one of Mountain Hardwear's most well-articulated jackets, it's cut to allow a superior range of mobility so you stay dry and comfortable, even in the most awkward of positions. Other features include two harness and pack-friendly side pockets which double as core vents and a three-way adjustable hood with a wire brim, making the Quasar Lite the perfect emergency jacket for day-long alpine missions.
