Your New Bestie For Uphill, Downhill, And Everything In Between

Using the latest technology paired with a forward-thinking mix of materials, the Ascendant family represents a firm step forward in the rapidly evolving category insulated layers that truly can be worn through a wide range of activities.

The newest in active insulation technology, the Ascendant Hoody drops excess heat and moisture when you're moving uphil – but shelters you from the cold when you downshift. The stretchy, weather-shedding Pertex Microlight 20D ripstop outer layer moves with you, and the wicking, lightly fuzzy Polartec Alpha Direct Insulation is perfect over a base layer, or even your skin. Ski in it, climb in it, ride to work in it – live in it.

Fabric Technologies & Benefits:

  • Pertex Microlight 100% Nylon 20D ripstop stretch woven shell:
    • 96% windproof. The air that passes through aids evaporative cooling and drying.
    • Micro rip-stop abrasion
    • Stretch comfort
    • Smooth surfaces layers easily under other clothes
    • Non-pilling fabric so jacket retains appearance for longer than conventional fleece

    • Large surface area for effective moisture wicking
    • High warmth-to-weight ratio

Looks good, a bit like the old Karrimor Alpinist Fleece before it went downhill.
