Black Diamond Recon Jacket

The Black Diamond Recon Jacket offers up a long list of features in a relatively small package. In addition to the aforementioned zonal construction the Recon Jacket also sports a large helmet compatible hood complete with integrated Cohaesive cord management. It kind of works like a push-button adjustment and is super handy when fine tuning the adjustment of the hood and also the jackets hem, where this feature is also utilized. One push of the Cohaesive button provides three-way adjustability for the hood. Easy-peasy.

Pockets abound on the Recon Jacket with two zippered hand warmer pockets, two zip chest pockets, one side arm pocket and two internal skin-compatible stretch-mesh drop pockets. While most people store their skins in their pack between climbs it’s recommended to store them inside your jacket to keep the glue warm. This helps the adhesive work better and also makes them slightly less difficult to separate. The final touch on the Recon jacket is its integrated powder skirt which nicely meshes the Recon Jacket to the pants and seals out any drafts and powder on those deep, deep days.
