The Alpamayo jacket provides versatile comfort for skiing and mountaineering. This jacket meets the persistent challenge of selecting outerwear that will respond to the extreme fluctuations of temperature and moisture common to a typical day at altitude. The wide comfort range provided by llama fabric makes this jacket perfect for cold weather mountaineering, fishing, hunting, and climbing in conditions that can suddenly threaten survival.
It can also be worn in complete comfort whether skiing in January or shussing slush on closing day. The zippered hand warmer pockets and Napoleon chest pockets plus two interior chest pockets offer secure storage and ready access for maps, GPS, compass, gloves, and other essential equipment. The rich-looking, resilient fabric makes this piece a great choice for after-ski and around town.
The Alpamayo Jacket style is the only style in this line that is an oversized design to accommodate a wider range of movement. All the rest of the unisex sizing is designed as a true male fit in Small, Medium, Large, X Large, XX Large except for the Alpamayo Jacket which is oversized. Women ordering this style should consider ordering the next size down. Notice that the hip width is a narrower design and will not accommodate a wider hip area.
