Description

A lightweight, robust and versatile men’s jacket that offers excellent year-round protection in the high mountain or on cold climate expeditions to the polar regions. Made to last, the jacket will retain its performance over time and age gracefully into a classic, weathered look.  

Created in collaboration with leading outdoor and wilderness guides, the design incorporates numerous well-considered technical details. The Ventile fabric is windproof and will keep you dry for extended periods during light showers. Relatively quick drying and virtually noise-free, the fabric has a soft, comfortable feel against the skin.

The jacket is made from compression-woven organic Ventile® cotton that is water-repellent yet exceptionally breathable (non-condensing). The secret to Ventile’s water-repellency lies in the swelling of the woven fibres when they come into contact with water, forming an effective barrier against light rain. Originally developed fire hose material, Ventile fabric was repurposed as cockpit clothing by the British Royal Air Force (RAF) just before World War II, as a way to increase fighter pilot survivability during cold water landings. It has stood the test of time and is still in use in the RAF today. This high-performing fabric was also worn during the first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, and on numerous demanding polar expeditions since.

The water-repellency of the Ventile construction has been enhanced by an added Schoeller® 3-layer hydrophilic membrane to the hood, shoulders and upper arms. This combination offers a lightweight and comfortable jacket with exceptional breathability while keeping you dry during light showers. At times of prolonged or heavy downpours, you may experience water seepage, but in exchange, appreciate the superior breathability compared to regular shell jackets. A good tip is to pack a lightweight storm shelter as a weatherproof cover for yourself and your backpack during heavy rain showers. Storm shelters have multiple uses in the outdoors and are worth their weight in your backpack!

For optimal moisture transport and thermoregulation, we recommend wearing Super Thermo mesh next to the skin, and a Classic merino wool midlayer on top.

    Beautifully made parka for polar explorers, but just too heavy (2 lbs) for a recreational shell. Return procedure the most expensive ($30) and difficult (try to find the real return form hidden in the fake return form) of any company I have dealt with!

All sizes are averages and approximate. Your size may vary depending based on your body shape and the model.

Mesh base layers are generally quite stretchy in all directions and are cut long. As the girth increases the length will decrease

Generally the Women’s sizes will be one size smaller than Unisex. I.E. a Unisex SM is equivalent to a Women’s MD.

Laundry Instructions

Wool is a natural fiber which does not to be laundered regularly. A global wardrobe survey in 2015 by AC Nielsen confirmed that wool garments have a longer life than cotton – as much as 50% longer. Merino wool can be worn multiple time between washings which will prolong the garment life and protect the environment. The synthetic fibers like Schoeller® Polycolon can be machine washed and hung to dry.

Hand wash or machine wash on gentle cycle with cool water (not to exceed 85°F).

Line dry. Do not tumble dry.

Do not use bleach.

Do not use fabric softener.

Do not dry clean.
