Sustainable Performance

Performances durables

Nachhaltige Performance

Years of experience go into the design, creation and realisation of all of our products. Behind this stands a deep respect and love for the mountains we play, explore and adventure in. Inspired by this, the updated Microlight Collection is devoted to everything we’re passionate about - performance, technology and the environment.

Une longue expérience sous-tend la création et la réalisation de tous nos produits, ainsi qu’un amour et un profond respect pour la montagne, notre terrain de jeu favori. 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. Die überarbeitete Microlight Collection wird von ihr inspiriert und ist all dem gewidmet, woran unser Herz hängt – Performance, Technologie und die Umwelt.

Description

Need a lightweight down gilet for multi-activity insulation? With recycled down and body-mapped baffles, our Microlight Vest delivers core warmth without restricted movement or wasted weight.

Our classic Microlight Vest has been upgraded. In addition to a fresh, active-cut aesthetic, the use of zoned micro and nano baffle stitch-through construction ensures a more intelligent distribution of down, eliminating cold spots and delivering warmth exactly where it’s needed. Built exclusively from recycled fabrics, it uses 700FP P.U.R.E recycled down, alongside a 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon outer with a weather-resistant DWR coating. Practical mountain features include easy-stretch elasticated armholes, harness-friendly zipped pockets, a drawcord adjustable hem and a close-fitting collar. They also include a compact stuff sack and a weight of just 317g for the easiest possible carry.

Whether you want casual everyday warmth or a flexible mountain mid-layer, the new Microlight Vest is down insulation at its most accessible.
