This winter La Sportiva’s Alpine Tech collection – for ice climbing and extreme weather conditions – will be available in the UK for the first time. Created in collaboration with Swiss mountain guides and La Sportiva athletes, Alpine Tech is the brand’s top-notch apparel range: the highest quality, ultimate functionality, maximum technicality and innovation put together with no compromises to meet alpine mountaineering needs. Three key garments in this capsule collection, available in men’s and women’s versions, include:
Supercouloir GTX Pro Jacket
The Supercouloir GTX Pro (£550) is a state-of-the-art shell developed for ice climbing and technical winter mountaineering. It is constructed using a mix of materials, with the main body in Gore-Tex Pro fabric and reinforced Superfabric inserts in high-wear areas. Total freedom of movement is guaranteed by articulated arms and shoulders, while an adjustable helmet-compatible hood protects from the elements. There’s one external chest pocket, two harness-compatible front pockets, two internal mesh pockets and a removable snow skirt.
Supercouloir 1000 Down Jacket
The Supercouloir 1000 Down Jacket (£400) complements the GTX Pro Jacket and is designed to balance freedom of movement with light weight and maximum insulation. The 1,000 fill power 90/10 Piumino Oca Pure White down gives unparalleled warmth, shelled with Pertex® Quantum recycled fabric. The insulated adjustable hood is helmet compatible, plus there are two front pockets and an internal mesh compression pocket.
Alpine Guide Primaloft hoody
The Alpine Guide Primaloft Hoody (£240) is a lightweight and versatile insulating layer suitable for year round use in the mountains. Weighing just 270g (Large) it is light enough to take as an emergency warm layer in the summer months, and thanks to the Primaloft Silver Active is breathable enough to wear all day in the colder months. The jacket features rectangular baffles to contain the loose fill Primaloft insulation and ensure it remains spread over the whole garment. The Primaloft Silver insulation is made from 100% recycled materials.
