Designed by Tradition
It’s no secret that natural fibers, such as the custom Shetland wool garments made for the 1953 Mount Everest expedition, have rivaled their synthetic counterparts in terms of insulation and moisture wicking performance. Likewise, old-world weaving and stitching methods such as waffling, ribbing, and tuck stitching to this day continue to deliver warmth, comfort, and range of motion essential for cold weather activities.
The Classic Waffle serves as a perfect midlayer underneath our Classic Shell Jacket or Alpine Anorak.
Dynamic ergonomic ribbing allows for wide range of motion through the shoulders and elbows while the traditional square waffle knit traps heat close to the body, providing warmth on cool nights in the Alps and cold winter days.
