Mountain Equipment Tupilak Jacket
© Mountain Equipment, Jul 2013 Combining all our technical hardshell expertise with the finest materials available today, our Tupilak Jacket is perhaps the ultimate waterproof climbing protection.
New generation GORE-TEX® Pro provides the foundation for a jacket that not only seals out the worst storms but works with you on hard routes anywhere in the world. New GORE-TEX® Pro fabric offers better durability than ever before and up to 28% greater breathability. Combined with a 40D face fabric and ultra-tough yet mobile 80D reinforcements you have the current state-of-the-art in extreme protection. STORM construction techniques work with these cutting edge fabrics to ensure that you stay dry when confronted by the worst weather imaginable. Trim yet with total mobility, our completely new Alpine Cut was custom made for climbers and mountaineers who demand an unrestrictive shell tailor made for the most difficult modern climbing.
Built with the assumption that you will have to keep climbing through serious conditions the Tupilak thrives on everything from the legendary savagery of Scottish winter test pieces to the intimidation of the last great Himalayan problems. Our Super Alpine Hood is the best available today, designed specifically to accommodate modern helmet designs with no loss of vision or protection. Easily adjusted in difficult conditions and with internal silicone grip strips it will move perfectly with your head, with or without a helmet. At last your hood can stay up without impeding even the hardest and most marginal leads in the mountains.
Two large Napoleon pockets store the essentials with food and navigation equipment always at hand either on a hanging belay or whilst battling down to the valley through a white out.
For the hardest climbs in the harshest conditions on earth the Tupilak provides ultimate climbing protection.
