Why carry three layers when you can wear one? With its new Vapour-Rise™ system, our Women’s VR Alpine Light Jacket provides all the thermal regulation, moisture management and weather protection the alpine adventurer needs.
As part of our highly technical Ascent range, the Women’s VR Alpine Light Jacket comes with a double-ended YKK VISLON® front zip for easy belaying, plus a lightweight elasticated hood with windproof peak. It also features large venting chest pockets for extra airflow, as well as elasticated cuffs and an adjustable hem for a tailored fit. But the real key to its mountain credentials lies in our re-engineered Vapour-Rise™ system. Built on the back of two years’ research and development alongside Leeds University and the Association of Mountaineering Instructors, it uses brushed polyester and mesh linings to wick moisture away from high-sweat zones. The breathable Pertex® Quantum Air shell then controls the dispersal of that moisture, keeping you dry during arduous ascents and warm when you need to rest.
As practical for skiing as it is for hiking, scrambling and mountaineering, the Women’s VR Alpine Light Jacket is the definitive multi-sport mountain softshell.
