Adjustable waist system - Easy to adjust with one hand; just pull the cinch-cord within the hand pockets to lock out the elements. Press the one-handed release on the outside hem to loosen the jacket back up.

Review from canadiangeographic.ca
“The Westcomb Apoc jacket is a lightweight shell that managed to keep snow, rain, and sea spray off of me even in rough days — and it fit inside the minimalist pocket of the Hatchback camera bag. The taped seams and weatherproof zippers inspired the same confidence as the Made in Canada label. The fit is easily adjustable with six different adjustment loops, mostly around the hood and the collar, the latter of which is lined with soft felt that prevents chafing while your head is swiveling to steer around chunks of ice. On warmer days and long hikes, the armpit zips were a lifesaver. The Napoleon breast pocket let me keep some essential items like bear flares close at hand, keeping the roomy waist pockets free. This jacket performed amazingly well in varied conditions, and continually delivered surprises in its functionality. The only downside is the persistent, distinct scent of cumin that seems to have come with the jacket, which made me crave tex-mex, a rare commodity in the Northwest Passage.” Read more...
