Why we made this
We designed this alpine hardshell to be waterproof, durable and breathable — made for climbers, the Lightweight Prophet performs consistently across all four seasons.
Designed for mountaineers, the Lightweight Prophet is an alpine hardshell providing advanced weather protection and technical performance. Engineered to be waterproof and windproof, this jacket is fully seam sealed and features Pertex® Shield Pro fabric for a waterproof and durable 3-layer construction that provides highly breathable protection for extended use in extreme conditions. Pertex® Shield Pro uses a microporous membrane to allow moisture vapour to pass through the fabric, effectively minimising sweat build up and keeping you comfortable for longer. Complete with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) fabric treatment, the Lightweight Prophet is engineered to help keep you dry in the mountains. Designed with the climber in mind, this jacket has increased lift patterning in the underarms for freedom of movement and is both helmet and harness compatible, with raised hand pockets (and an external chest pocket) for easy access while on route. With a clean silhouette, high collar and YKK® AquaGuard® water-resistant pocket zips (please note: they are not waterproof), the Lightweight Prophet is fully featured for all-weather mountain missions.

is the hood detachable?
BEST ANSWER: No, and it is big to account for a helmet. Running atound without that can mean its a little annoying to get it fitting right. But I'd definitely take that given it gives amazing protection in really poor weather. That is, you can just narrow it to eye slits.
Does it have a snow skirt?
BEST ANSWER: This is a great jacket, which I've just used in the Himalaya. My son has one too. There is no snow skirt though.
