Product information

A hybrid close-fitting mid layer ideally suited to those needing to move fast over technical ground with the least amount of layers necessary.

The Switch Jacket uses POLARTEC Alpha insulation packed into flat baffles on the body, conserving body heat generated when working hard, whilst also providing protection from heat-sapping wind and drying quickly. Pontetorto Tecnostretch fleece on the arms and sides provides essential warmth whilst maintaining rapid moisture transfer. With a slim fit the Switch Women's Jacket exists to keep you at the optimum temperature for moving fast in the mountains, and could even be used as a technical heavy-baselayer.

We design, test and build our gear with passion and commitment. We use it ourselves, and we work closely with our Pro Partners to help us perfect our products, so that you can be sure that your Mountain Equipment gear has been proven to perform.
