Arete is designed to offer lightweight sustainable warmth for alpine adventures. It does this using merino wool insulation instead of down and a recycled polyester shell fabric. Unlike down, 80gsm merino wool insulation can shift moisture away from your body quickly and is warm even when wet, which makes merino insulation far more versatile.
What’s that? You don’t own a down vest? Oh my. You’re truly missing out. A good quality down vest, like the Laurel Vest, is the perfect layering essential for chilly days. A vest doesn’t overheat like a down jacket, but it adds more warmth than a thin midlayer. This well-designed vest offers a long, slim fit, plenty of style for off the hill, and wind-and-water-resistant down fill to keep you dry and toasty.
