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.

Die Microlight Collection

In search of a lightweight down gilet for mountain, town and trail? With recycled construction and body-mapped baffles, our best-selling Women’s Microlight Vest is more effective than ever.

Our classic Women’s Microlight Vest has been brought up to date with a slick new design aesthetic and some carefully selected upgrades. At just 259g, it retains outstanding packability but, from the 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon shell to the 20D lining and the GRS-certified 700FP P.U.R.E down, the fabrics and down are now fully recycled. The new design also features ‘intelligent’ insulation. The zoning of micro and nano baffles helps put the down where it’s needed, reducing migration and improving warmth, without wasting weight, adding bulk or restricting movement. Ideal for both everyday insulation and mountain layering, ascent-ready features include a weather-resistant DWR coating, two large harness-friendly zipped hand pockets, a warm down-filled collar and a drawcord-adjustable hem.

The new Women’s Microlight Vest delivers an appealing combination of low weight, core warmth and easy movement for a rapid insulation boost whenever it’s needed.
