Winter in the Cairngorms: whether you’re making your approach, fighting your way up yet another pitch, or belaying your partner from a particularly exposed stance… who would say no to being swaddled by 100gsm of Primaloft Gold (with added features, of course…)? 

“This has quickly become my number one go-to-jacket… it performs exceptionally well… and synthetic means I can worry less if it gets a bit wet.” - Anna Wells, Alpkiteer 

Apogee is a packable, lightweight, and low-maintenance insulated jacket for keeping you warm in damp conditions where temperatures are around freezing. 

Designed with Scottish winters and icy days at the crag in mind, Apogee is feature-packed for mountain use. The helmet compatible hood, integrated wrist-warmers, dropped hem on the back and internal zip baffle fend off draughts. The two-way zip gives you access to your harness, and a relaxed cut means you layer up over a shell when the temperatures plummet. 80 gsm of insulation in the arms enhance your freedom of movement. 

Apogee’s durable and water resistant outer fabric more than handles the demands of hero life. The Primaloft Gold fill offers a warmth to weight ratio unparalleled in synthetic insulation; repelling water, retaining thermal properties when wet, and recovering quickly from a soaking. 

Hear from Anna Wells about how the Apogee performed in the field:  Apogee: Worry Free Warmth 

PRIMALOFT® GOLD
Primaloft Gold is a synthetic fibre which create millions of tiny air pockets to trap body heat, keeping you warm in colder conditions. It uses a water repellent finish to improve performance in extreme conditions, maintaining its thermal properties even when wet. Primaloft Gold has a better warmth to weight ratio than standard synthetic fibres. It’s also easy to care for, packable, breathable, and super soft: mega!

That's the one for scottish outdoorsy days!

No, down in Europe you don't need it. Down in Europe on a rainy day you just stay at home. Here in Scotland, you never know. The coctail of weather is everpresent, makind Scotland Scotland smile This is a down jacket that survives rain, means you don't need to put over it a waterproof shell when it comes to rain and then take it off, when the rain is off. You can walk worryless and enjoy the nature. I'm kind of size '11', buying size 12 in Alpkit, and it fits great! Cosy warm and ultra light, technical with sophisticated details, while still womany and chic smile

Apogee Jacket Makes Outdoor Magic 100

I like this jacket. It’s got a really solid vibe to it. Like a well-made family saloon car, it feels reassuring from the minute you get inside it.

UKC Review The Apogee Belay Jacket

Its top end insulation makes it very warm for its weight, yet still light and easily packable.
