When the cold Mistral wind blows through the Alps, our airshed pullover gets the call! A super lightweight layer, it’s ideal for those shoulder season days when a warm base layer is a bit too much.
Stretchy, breathable, and silky, it slides right over a base layer to provide excellent wind resistance. A zippered chest pocket can hold a credit card and a few euros—enough for lunch at Col Balme on the French-Swiss border, before your run down to Le Tour. Quarter-zip for venting helps you keep cool on the climbs.
Models: Run the Alps Guide Grant Fulton, Emily Geldard, Kim Strom. Grant recently ticked off a ski descent of the highest peak in Bolivia, 6,542-meter tall Nevado Sajama. Emily’s Airshed pullover made an appearance in one of Switzerland’s newest skyraces, the highly technical Trail du Besso. (Read her story here.) Kim is part of the crew at our friends over at ALPSinsight and co-authored Run the Alps Switzerland.)
