Making up for the distinct lack of snow last winter, 2018 is off to a fantastic start. As conditions continue to improve across Europe, the dreams of powder days are finally becoming a reality, even opening up the elusive British backcountry. It is here, in the mountains that the Sharp Edge Jacket and Pants really come into their own.
Perfected for ski mountaineering, the Sharp Edge is designed for technical climbs and nail-biting descents. Striking the balance between protection and comfort, the flexible Pertex AP 3L fabric is as breathable as it is hard-wearing, offering shelter from the elements without restricting movement.
Whether you are out day-touring or travelling hut to hut further afield, we have carefully considered the demands made on a shell of this nature. The result is a refined ski specific feature set including YKK AquaGaurd Escape Artist pit zips, chest pockets large enough for skins and a removable powder skirt.
Accompanying this, the Sharp Edge Pants are an equally refined offering with deep 2-way thigh vents for long ascents, Kevlar® Cordura® crampon patches and a ski mountaineering boot compatible hem with internal reinforcement and removable ankle gaiters.
From bluebird days on the Vallée Blanche to the white rolling plateaus of the Cairngorms, the Sharp Edge Jacket and Pants are an ideal combination for those looking to make the most of the current conditions.
