YKK® AquaGuard® VISLON® water repellent laminated front zip and internal baffle protects against water ingress. The Asmund hood fits securely over skiing and climbing helmets.
WATERPROOF BREATHABLE BALANCE
3 layer, ultra lightweight, micro-ripstop Polartec® NeoShell® waterproof fabric. NeoShell® has a highly aerobic air permeability with advanced wicking capabilities to keep moisture vapour away from your core. Prior to NeoShell® the elusive balance between waterproof and windproof protection and true breathability had yet to exist in a hard shell fabric.
Triple reinforced stitching ensures the VELCRO™ will not detach from the garment. Hypalon® cuff tabs are harder wearing and longer lasting than fabric cuff tabs. Scooped cuffs protect the backs of hands.
Anti-snag hem draw cords discourage snagging when harnesses and gear is worn; a problem encountered with traditional, loop draw cords.

Jöttnar’s incredible success, despite only launching in 2013, comes from making solid mountaineering clothing with impressive attention to detail. There are two places on earth where nothing is waterproof: under water and in Scotland. Well, it’s certainly waterproof, and I found it impressively breathable. In fact, Jöttnar are so confident in NeoShell’s breathability, they’ve not used any pit-zips. It’s also softer feeling than Gore-Tex shells. Over the next couple of months the Asmund was with me daily, on the hill while climbing and carrying loads, by the sea running in rain and even on a fashion shoot. Misuse or abusive use of a jacket can often cause abrasions and discoloration, but after three months, the Asmund proved to be durable and untainted.
