Ascent Insulated Trouser (Pre Order)
Alps & Meters
*Fulfilled Oct/Nov 2023
The Gentlemen adventurers of the Golden Age of Alpinism who gave birth to ski mountaineering and climbing gave limited thought to garment innovation until the end of the 19th century. Satisfied with their well-to-do high street ensembles many of the initial forays into the Alps of Europe were conducted in rudimentary garments that typified the clothing of the era. However, with the continued push into colder climes and higher elevations, weatherproof protection became the focus of specialized outerwear designers of the era.
Channeling the leap of apparel innovation which occurred during the Golden Age of Alpinism, Alps & Meters has designed the Ascent Trouser. Inspired by the pioneering spirit of the first alpinists and their first ascents, this unique high performance trouser combines classic design and materials with modern functionality.
Crafted with a Swiss engineered Schoeller waterproof wool blend, the Ascent Trouser offers unparalleled protection. Featuring a 2-layer Schoeller wool-blend shell fabric fortified with "C-Change" technology and 40g Primaloft Gold insulation, the Ascent Trouser delivers a 20k/20k waterproof rating, shielding off-piste Alpinists from extreme and variable weather including wind, snow, and rain.
With a classic cut and traditional suspender kit, this tailored, timeless, & technical trouser ensures all-weather protection, keeping you dry and comfortable throughout your ski mountaineering adventures.
