Summit Ridge Co. has come up with Apex G1 Alpine which is a premium quality mountaineering jacket. They claim to have brought a new innovation to the market for performance/ sports outerwear making it the most breathable and durable jacket there is.
Why Apex G1 for mountain climbing?
A jacket is one of the most important pieces of equipment mountaineers wear. It needs to be lightweight and durable. Mountain climbing enthusiasts and adventure lovers require the best and most efficient equipment for their mountain ascents to ensure safety, avoid accidents and prevent injuries. Apex G1 Alpine Select created by Summit Ridge Co. is the answer for all altitude lovers. The jacket has been specifically designed keeping these requirements in mind. Made with cutting-edge Nanofi technology for superior water protection and increased durability. The Apex G1 Alpine Select is better than the traditional 2- layer jacket because of its 3-Layered design with a mid-layer called the Apex G1.
What sets Apex G1 apart from the other jackets?
Alpine G1 select is incorporated with NanoFi fabric technology. The nano face fabric is a high-quality porous fabric, and the membrane has non-porous fabric, this gives an incredible functional temperature range even at extreme lows. The jacket is designed to operate in temperatures from sub-zero (with mid-layer) to warm summer mountain air. The biggest disadvantage of traditional performance outerwear is bulk-layering. Apex G1 has tackled this issue with premium technology embedded in the Apex G1 jacket.
The jacket comes with a few unique features such as ultimate breathability, 28,000 mm/g waterproof rating, flexibility, and durable 90D face fabric. Embedded with protection, comfort, and confidence to explore further.
