Technical  MEN's wear

Despite the overall increase in temperatures in winter, it is essential to be well equipped to brave the peaks, take a family mountain walk, go tobogganing, skiing, hiking, or "snowshoeing". Having high-performance equipment adapted to your needs has become essential to resist the elements and practice your mountain activity with comfort and safety. Note that depending on the discipline chosen, the equipment will not necessarily be the same as any other discipline. Today, men's technical textiles have evolved considerably, both from a technical and aesthetic point of view, whether you are a competitor, a hobbyist, a beginner or a regular, a fashionista or more basic. Technical clothing becomes a real ally that promotes movement, wicks away perspiration and limits the presence of outside humidity, in style. We offer you a wide range of products that will keep you warm and dry during your trips (in the mountains), whatever the weather. The idea is to effectively protect your body from the cold, external and internal humidity.

But then, how to dress during your winter expeditions?

First of all, it is essential to wear a first coat.
Underwear keeps warm and warms up the body's most sensitive parts. More and more manufacturers such as Icebreaker or Ortovox use merino wool as a first coat. Merino wool has the impressive ability to absorb large amounts of moisture without appearing wet. It transports moisture to the core of the fibre before gradually releasing it. At the same time, it regulates the temperature, prevents unpleasant odours (antibacterial fabric) and dries quickly, as much as synthetic. Merino wool is the most functional fibre in the world. It is the best material for professional technical underwear. To sum up, merino wool protects the body from perspiration and this is essential in the mountains, where you must avoid getting cold.
In fact, first coats are useful in all seasons, especially in winter. Why? Winter sports cause a wide temperature range between perspiration during exercise and cooling during breaks.

Then, depending on the weather, you can wear a second layer, which will bring more warmth to your body. Powerstretches can be an interesting choice to stay warm, while having a breathable and comfortable product to wear during exercise. The softshells, considered as jackets, are appreciated for spring alpine skiing, very breathable, but also for cross-country skiing, walking, or trekking. Namely that softshells are not waterproof, but windproof. The Trilogy V Icon WDS softshell can become a must as a mountaineering jacket (ascent or approach jacket). It is 100% windproof thanks to its Windstopper Light Active 3L membrane, but also water-repellent, lightweight and does not sacrifice protection or ease of movement. It facilitates the technical gesture and boosts breathability.
Polar fleece clothing to effectively fight the cold can also be a tool adapted to mountain practice.

Finally, a third layer is essential in case of wind, rain, humidity, or snow. An anorak can therefore be a solution to stay out of the weather, while remaining free in its movements. The Scott Jacket Vertic GTX 3L biking jacket can be a great choice for the most adventurous riders. The seams are completely waterproof, and its membrane is Gore Tex, perfect for extreme conditions.
The famous Gore Tex is perfect for thermal insulation, and offers excellent water repellency and waterproofing, and wicks away perspiration, but you still have to choose the right Gore Tex jacket, because all have their own characteristics (gore tex pro/ gore tex active/ etc). Moreover, to preserve your Gore Tex jacket for a long time, be careful when washing.

In addition, it will be important to choose comfortable pants that insulate you from moisture and allow you a lot of freedom of movement on difficult terrain or steep passages.

For all these technical reasons, a wide range of products has been carefully selected by experts in extreme cold and snow sports. We offer you anoraks, softshells, first layers, pants, socks, gloves, and hats that will allow you to be comfortable and elegant in all situations, and whatever your practice: trekking in Nepal, skiing in the Alps, hiking in the Vosges, cross-country skiing in the Jura etc.
