Black Diamond Rain Shell Lineup

A raincoat is an essential item that every adventurous person should have in their arsenal. Not only does it protect you from the rain, but it also doubles as a windbreaker on chilly days. Black Diamond offers a range of raincoats, each with its own unique features and benefits. Let’s delve into the differences between their popular raincoat models.


Before we dive into the specifics, let’s take a moment to familiarize ourselves with Black Diamond’s innovative technology: BD.dry™. This advanced waterproof technology is designed to keep you comfortable and mobile even in wet conditions. The goal was to create a fabric that not only repels water but also allows for breathability during intense activities.

BD Dry

The 2.5L jackets featuring BD.dry™ made up of three parts: a face fabric that’s treated with a DWR finish, a membrane that goes on the inside, and a half layer print that goes on the inside of the membrane, right next to your skin. The face fabric with its DWR treatment sheds water—droplets literally roll off the hydrophobic DWR. Meanwhile, the microporous inner coating stops precipitation from penetrating through the fabric, while still allowing moisture vapor to pass through from the inside out, keeping your skin dry and comfortable. Finally, the .5 layer is applied as a raised print to the inside, which feels soft against your skin.


Now let’s explore the different raincoat models offered by Black Diamond
