Properly located zipped hand warmer pockets sit above harnesses and rucksack hip belts.

As soon as I put this jacket on it was clear that a lot of thought has gone into its design. Not only that, but from people who really know about being in the mountains.
Superb insulation at the high altitude refuge when the night temperatures dropped massively; the hood and the high neck offering supreme cosiness without the bulk of a down jacket.
There are some giants there that could see their market share shift over to these guys if Jöttnar continue to produce kit of this standard. Highly recommended.
