Alpamayo Waterproof Smock
|Colour:||Orange or Black|
|Construction:||Fully taped seams|
The Alpamayo Smock is a short-zip lightweight, offering excellent protection and the free arm movement so necessary in a smock design. YKK Aquaseal zips and a large wired hood ensure that our HS3 fabric delivers top level performance. The large chest pocket will take an OS map with ease.
A new take on a (good) old idea and altogether a pleasure to take on the hill with you.
HS3 is a 3-layer laminate, a modern high-performance fabric with a soft handle. It is not the lightest fabric we tested, but it has the right balance of the qualities needed for mountain shells: waterproofing, weight, breathability and durability.
YKK's Aquaseal zips are fully water and wind proof.
The weight shown (425g) is for size: L.

"This feels like a winter smock to me, the HS2 is a supple mid-weight laminated fabric with a soft-touch inner scrim. The hood is a cracker, a good fit on my napper. I think this looks like a good option, especially if the fabric does its part, it's got clean lines, just the features you need and hey, itâ€™s orange." Petsey (a.k.a Peter Macfarlane)
"The material has a soft feel and even on the really wet days kept me perfectly dry. Breathability is good as I never once noticed any wetting up inside; even when working hard going uphill in the wind and rain. I especially like the length of the Alpamayo, and although it only weighs 425 grams, it is a full four season jacket. I considered many lightweight jackets/smocks but am pleased that I chose the Alpamayo. Other jackets may be lighter, but, in my view, they don't match up to the Alpamayo for specifications and performance." Gordon Green.
