From first tracks to first ascents, the First Light Hoody is the quintessential start-stop piece, a layer that breathes and moves on alpine approaches, banger skin laps and everything in between. Fully insulated with PrimaLoft Silver Insulation Active and constructed from lightweight Schoeller, it is our most breathable insulation piece, and will stay on through all of your transitions.
The Black Diamond First Light Hoody was designed as the ultimate in lightweight, breathable insulation, a piece that can handle anything from windblown knife-edged traverses to mellow tours out the hut’s backdoor. With a baffled body packed with migration-resistant Primaloft Silver Insulation Active, the First Light Hoody has a unique build that allows it to breathe during even the most intense high-output sessions. Schoeller construction maintains durability, so you can wear it anywhere from on the wall to on the descent trail. With an elastic, climbing-helmet-compatible hood, a low-profile, single-adjust hem and internal stretch mesh pocket that packs the jacket and clips onto your harness with a clip loop, all of your needs are covered.
