Black Diamond insists that their Stance Belay Hoody is perfect for when you're on belay in cold conditions.... I insist that it is perfect for a winter tailgate. We're both right, and it can handle anything in between. With the warmth and compressibility offered by 80g PrimaLoft insulation, this jacket can easily be taken with you on any adventure.... like waiting outside a Border's Bookstore all night before Black Friday only to realize that Borders has been out of business for a while. The Stance Belay Hoody's outer material is DWR (durable water repellent) treated to resist rain and the hood is adjustable and helmet-compatible. Just thought you'd like to know that.

Black Diamond Stance Belay Hoody Reviews:


Good fit for tall person

I'm 6'1" 190lbs. In military sizes I'm a Medium-Long. In Patagonia I am usually a large. This black diamond coat in size large fits me in girth and length perfectly. It's form fitting enough to wear under a goretex shell. If you wanted to use this atop other bulky layers you need to go a size up but keep in mind that the wrists and forearms are pretty snug fitting. I'm new to Primaloft and Black Diamond stuff so I can't tell you how it performs in the cold yet. All I can say is this thing looks really well made and well designed. Very light and stuffs well.

Perfect design.

I tried on 10 top brand jackets to replace my 10 year old Mountain Hardwear Compressor jacket. This one was the last I tried and the fit was perfect. I wear size large jackets and have broad shoulders. This one let me breath and bend my elbows. Great design.

Light and Warm

I've had a down sweater for years and loved it, but was looking for more warmth. Also was looking for something that would work in wet weather. I went with the Stance Hoody over the parka because of its packability for touring.
