Millet is the choice of the Guides Company of Chamonix, and in fact the Guides are an integral part of the testing process and development of Millet’s product range. Trilogy is the name given to Millet’s top-of-the-range pieces, and they take their inspiration from the winter ascents by Eric Escoffier in the 1980s of the three major north faces in the Alps – the Eiger, Matterhorn and Grandes Jorasses. The Trilogy range is intended to allow you to perform even in the worst conditions the mountains can throw at you.
The prizes in our competition this month are a men’s and women’s Trilogy Down Tek Hoodie, and the spec for these jackets is quite exceptional. They use the water-repellent DownTek down, which is also anti-microbial and anti-bacterial meaning that they won’t pong as much as jackets using untreated down. The down is 700-fillpower (USA) and the jacket comes with an adjustable, helmet-compatible hood. The outer fabric is made of durable Pertex Endurance, and with two handwarmer pockets, a chest pocket and a zipped internal pocket the jacket is super practical too. The Millet Trilogy Downtek Jacket retails for £295 and is available at specialist retailers around the UK.
