In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Product of the week!


This week let us present a super light and extremely durable jacket by adidas, one of the pieces that constitute the terrex™ line. Icefeather is advertised as the best outer layer to wear while climbing in the most demanding winter conditions. It was tested by two successful and talented Austrian climbers, Matthias Wurzer and Charly Fritzer during their trip to Scottish Highlands which is a windy mecca of mixed climbing in Europe, famous for its rather adverse and fitful weather. In Cairngorms National Park, on the walls of Coire an Lochain, the team added to their list the ascents of lines such as Fall Out Corner (VI/7), Nocando Crack (VII/8) or Pic ‘n Mix (IX/9). Moreover, Charly was also successful in his climb on The Secret (X/10) located on Ben Nevis.

Both climbers were effectively protected by the adidas terrex™ icefeather jacket. The model was designed on the basis of the well-known, technologically advanced 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro Shell membrane (133g stressed zones, 90g the main section) and the FORMOTION™ technology allowing for the maximum freedom of movement while climbing. Thanks to adjustments in the front section, the jacket retains its body-hugging shape without riding upwards, even with arms raised. Even during climbing or when bending forwards, the jacket retains its fit on the upper body and does not bulge.The jacket is equipped with adjustable helmet-compatible hood, underarm ventilation system, two hand warmer pockets, two chest pockets and one inner pocket. Apart from the aforementioned features, icefeather is distinguished by other functional solutions: removable snow stop, reflective elements and 2-way zipper resistant to mechanical damages.
