Inferno Zip



First held in January 1928, the inaugural Inferno Race took place when 19 members of Kandahar Ski Club climbed the Schilthorn (2,970m) above Mürren to race down the 2,100 meters to Lauterbrunnen, 14 kilometres away. A journey of almost 10 miles (15 km) and nearly 5 times the length of contemporary downhill Olympic courses, the Inferno was an alpine event whose novelty and legitimate physical and mental obstacles created powerful appeal to the growing racing class cut from the cloth of the Kandahar’s expansive blanket of accelerating British influence. High taste, panache, and handsome sensibility describe Alps & Meters Inferno Zip. An garment for every season, the Inferno Zip is crafted from a rich brushed wool coupled with signature suede trim.  Made in Italy, this classic sportswear garment is designed for the Gentleman Sportsman and includes Alps & Meters signature mark at left arm.  An  evergreen knitwear piece, this sporting style celebrates of the Kandahar Club’s polished British origins and legendary Inferno downhill which is still run to this day.
