Every little bit of warmth is precious when you're in the alpine. Black Diamond designed the Forge Hoodie to retain warmth on ice-cold alpine walls, wind-blasted ridges, and frigid transitions. While incredibly warm, down can be tricky to wear in a storm because it loses its insulating properties once it gets wet. Black Diamond put a DWR treatment on the 700-fill down and the Pertex Microlight fabric for some protection from light precipitation. Underarm gussets give you a wide range of motion on the ascent, and the whole jacket stows in its chest pocket with a carabiner loop so you can easily clip it to your harness or stuff it in your pack when the sun pokes out.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
