The Black Diamond B.D.V. Jacket is a breathable, packable and highly weather resistant jacket that stands as a modern re-imagining of Black Diamond's Alpine Shirt and is the perfect accompaniment to alpine objectives of all sizes and persuasions. Built with Schoeller stretch-woven softshell fabric, the B.D.V. is dynamic enough for high-output days but durable and protective enough to fend off moderate alpine conditions. The gusseted underarm panels are optimized for climbing movement, and the jacket stores in its own chest pocket with a carabiner clip loop for easy racking on your harness.
In 1998, Black Diamond created a small collection of softshell climbing garments and called them B.D.V.s - "Black Diamond Verticals." BDVs gained cult status among alpinists, but BD eventually set clothing aside to focus on their hardware business and the BDVs faded into legend. Now, in 2014, the BDVs are reborn as a modern alpine climbing softshell line made with Schoeller stretch-woven fabric and NanoSphere technology that provides breathable, packable, high water-resistant protection in mixed conditions.
