The pinnacle of protection, born from history
The Golden Age of first ascents during the late 19th century, alpinists were captivated by the alluring call of the mountains. These brave souls embraced the frigid embrace of the peaks, braving variable atmospheres and treacherous terrains. But to conquer such majestic heights, they needed more than just courage and skill; they needed the perfect garments that could withstand the ever-changing conditions of their alpine journeys.
In the spirit of the intrepid Founding Fathers of ski mountaineering, such as the legendary Fridtjof Nansen, Alps & Meters has embarked on a quest to channel the very essence of those early days. Drawing inspiration from the natural fibers that birthed the original mountaineering outerwear, they have meticulously crafted the Ascent Insulated Jacket—a true homage to the heritage that forged the path for mountain adventurers.
