Just ask any experienced ski tourer – most of the time, the trek uphill is a warm affair. A functional base layer, mid layer and a windproof vest on top are usually all you need. However, in stormier conditions, at the summit and on the way back down, you're going to need more insulation. This is precisely where the Monviso Insulation Jacket shines. Whether you wear it as an outer layer or under a hardshell, its strengths will come into play.
It packs down small and provides reliable warmth.
The name says it all in the Monviso Insulation Jacket. Because at 3,841 meters, Monviso in the Cottian Alps has everything that you want in a mountain – steep ridges, an impressive summit structure and plenty of climbing routes. The Monviso jacket is just as multi-faceted.
The heart of the jacket is the innovative PrimaLoft® Cross Core™ Technology that enables an extraordinary warmth to weight ratio. Cross Core™ combines a high-quality PrimaLoft® Gold insulation with the space technology aerogel. The results: the insulation keeps you up to 50 % warmer than the classic PrimaLoft® Gold at the same weight. Even when wet, the heat retention is still exceptionally high.
The Monviso Insulation Jacket is ideal for alpine use and the perfect complement for layering with the Monviso 3L Jacket, a hardshell that's also been newly designed. Its pockets have been positioned so that they are directly under the hardshell's ventilation zips and feature easy-access. An additional hidden zipper ensures cooling ventilation even with a backpack on strenuous ascents.
If the jacket isn't needed and you want to stow it way, just pack it into its own inner pocket. With a small pack size and superior warmth-to-weight ratio, it's the perfect companion for challenging ski adventures in the mountains – whether on long ski traverses or short, crisp, cold ski tours. The Monviso Insulation Jacket is also ideal for keeping you warm on after-work ski tours.
