Black Diamond Sharp End Shell Women
It's not just the cold that's out to get you in the mountains. Black Diamond designed the Sharp End Shell Women to take the abuse of speedy scrambles over harsh terrain, squeezing up awkward snow gulleys and rock chimneys, and those inevitable nicks from your ice axes. Its 70-Denier GORE-TEX Pro 3-Layer offers high levels of abrasion and tear-resistance for the best possible protection from cuts and tears, yet still remains breathable. The Sharp End Shell Women is ideal for any alpine climber or mountaineer seeking a hard-wearing jacket that's made to last.

GORE-TEX® Pro 3-Layer
GORE-TEX® Pro products feature three distinct features: an exclusive 100% ePTFE-based multilayer membrane system that enhances weatherproofing, outer materials that are higher than 40-denier to increase abrasion-resistance, and a patented Gore Micro Grid Backer technology that improves breathability, reduces weight, and slides easily over internal layers. It's designed for top performance in demanding environments.
