It starts at the core.

The Outdoor Research Men's Ascendant Insulated Vest has that special touch of core warmth required for skinning on a particularly cold ski tour. Most of the time you can stay warm and toasty by moving fast uphill, but occasionally your fingers start to numb, indicating that your core isn't warm enough to move blood down to your fingertips. Next it'll be your toes, then your legs, and your arms. This vest's Polartec Alpha insulation keeps your core at the right temperature while you're skinning so you don't lose feeling one pinky toe after another. Polartec Alpha is air permeable, which begins to breathe the moment you put the vest on, so you don't feel stifled with sweat before the first switchback.

  • Breathable insulator for backcountry skiing and belaying
  • Air-permeable Polartec Alpha insulation ensures breathability
  • Windproof Pertex Microlight shell with mirror-moving stretch
