Designed to trim excess weight on backcountry trails and alpine faces, the Black Diamond Liquid Point Shell carries all of the features you expect from a GORE-TEX hardshell jacket with minimal bulk and lightweight materials. Featuring hand pockets for cold digits, this jacket also has an adjustable, climbing-helmet-compatible hood and two-way armpit zip vents that allow for quick temperature regulation. The drawcord hem and custom-molded cuff tabs seal out intrusive moisture and cold wind when conditions get foul.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Since 1957, Black Diamond's innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas.
Black Diamond has become a globally recognized voice for conservation and preservation ethics, particularly in Utah, where Black Diamond's global headquarters sit at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains. Black Diamond and Waste Management recycled an estimated 25 tons of Black Diamond's waste—approximately 60% of the organization's total solid waste stream. This included approximately 138 tons of cardboard, 43 tons of metals, 28 tons of paper, 26 tons of plastics and 1,776 lbs of computer waste. This recycling effort amounted to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately 510 tons CO2—roughly equivalent to not driving 720,000 miles each year.
