The Guide Shell is made for demanding alpine activities like big mountain freeriding, ski-touring expeditions, climbing and alpinism in extreme conditions. This 3-layer shell is made from a new material, developed in Japan, that will keep you totally protected from the elements. It is extremely durable while still offering great comfort, high flexibility, relatively low weight and uncompromising functionality. It is completely waterproof, very breathable and will endure any challenges that you might encounter during demanding activities in the mountains. The Guide Shell is a full-featured technical garment with a reductive design. This means that you have all the functionality needed, without any unnecessary details. This system is designed for those who spend long days on the mountain, carrying a backpack, using climbing gear and other equipment.
Extremely durable, completely waterproof, completely stormproof and highly breathable. Two large chest pockets with plenty of room for smartphone, bars or a small camera, easily accessed when wearing a backpack and/or a harness. Elongated pit zips quickly releases heat during aerobic activities like hiking and skinning. 2-way-adjustable fixed hood that is helmet-compatible. Elongated cut with a straight fit for extra protection, and for staying tucked under a harness. Internal snow-gaiter system connects to all Stellar shell pants.
The Stellar Shell Jacket is lighter, smoother and more agile, with more pockets and a slightly shorter cut. It is designed to be very lightweight, primarily for alpine activities, but it is so versatile that it can be used for a wide variety of outdoor activities in all seasons. If you need a garment designed for skiing or ski-touring, this is a great alternative.
The Lightweight Shell Jacket is made from the same material as the Stellar Shell, but it is a very minimalistic alternative, stripped down to its bare necessities. It is very lightweight, nimble and packable while completely waterproof and windproof. Perfect for hiking or trekking in the fall, or fair-weather ski-touring in the spring.
