Description

Our classic lightweight down jacket has been updated. With a fresh design aesthetic and recycled construction, the highly packable Microlight Alpine Jacket is the go-to system for rapid warmth when the temperature drops.

The redesigned Microlight Alpine Jacket takes the versatile, easy-pack insulation of the established classic and dials in some intelligent new upgrades. It features a combination of zoned micro and nano baffles to increase core warmth without inflating weight or bulk - and the jacket’s ethical credentials are now equally sound. With 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon, as well as GRS-certified, 700 fill power P.U.R.E recycled hydrophobic down, the Microlight Alpine Jacket now features fully recycled shell, insulation and lining. Practical and user-friendly, both as an everyday jacket and as a mountain layer, additional features include three harness-compatible pockets, an easy-carry stuff sack and a down-filled hood with stiffened peak.

With its refined styling, improved down distribution and ethical upgrades, the Microlight Alpine Jacket is the definitive multi-purpose down jacket.

Pertex® Quantum Fabric

Pertex® Quantum uses a tightly woven structure to provide a light and soft fabric that allows insulation to fully loft. With down proof construction, a DWR finish and soft feel, it's a lightweight and packable windproof fabric offering excellent weather protection.

Ainsi, la collection Microlight revisitée est axée sur toutes les choses qui nous passionnent depuis toujours : amélioration des performances, innovations technologiques et environnement.

Unsere jahrelange Erfahrung wird in Design, Kreation und Umsetzung aller unserer Produkte mehr als deutlich. Dahinter verbirgt sich ein tiefer Respekt und eine große Liebe für die Bergwelt, durch die wir Streifzüge machen und in der wir Abenteuer erleben dürfen.
