We liked our Alpha Ascender hoody so much, we decided to hack the sleeves off and turn it into one of those technical vests everybody’s wearing these days. But this is way more than technical “looking.” This vest is the product of 100,000+ vertical feet of testing by the world’s greatest mountain guides. Made with military-spec Polartec Alpha active insulation, and strategically located stretch panels, the Ascender has alpine credibility that the other guys only dream about.

FIT PHILOSOPHY

Our products have been designed for climbers and outdoor users to be worn as a system of layering, and each piece has been fit for optimal performance. In general, our products have a slim, athletic cut and a little extra length. Our layers intentionally fit over each other. If you are between sizes, or prefer more room in your garment, we recommend you choose the larger size. 

FIT GUIDE

Athletic Fit: A slimmer fit designed for functional movement, and can be layered over base layers and light midlayers.

Relaxed Fit: The roomiest of our fit styles that allows for layering of multiple/heavier technical layers underneath.
