Designed by Tradition

It’s no secret that natural fibers, such as the custom Shetland wool garments made for the 1953 Mount Everest expedition, have rivaled their synthetic counterparts in terms of insulation and moisture wicking performance. Likewise, old-world weaving and stitching methods such as waffling, ribbing, and tuck stitching to this day continue to deliver warmth, comfort, and range of motion essential for cold weather activities.

THE STORY

It’s no secret that natural fibers, such as the custom Shetland wool garments made for the 1953 Mount Everest expedition, have rivaled their synthetic counterparts in terms of insulation and moisture wicking performance. Likewise, old-world weaving and stitching methods such as waffling, ribbing, and tuck stitching to this day continue to deliver warmth, comfort, and range of motion essential for cold weather activities. It is from these traditional methods of making that Alps & Meters introduces the Classic Waffle.

Woven in a familiar square waffle pattern which traps heat next to the body and coupled with ergonomic ribbing, the Classic Waffle delivers a Forged Performance package of timeless technologies ideal for use on-mountain or about town.

FORGED PERFORMANCE

Dynamic ergonomic ribbing allows for wide range of motion through the shoulders and elbows while the traditional square waffle knit traps heat close to the body, providing warmth on cool nights in the Alps and cold winter days, while also serving as a perfect midlayer under an Alps & Meters outerwear garment.
