In 1911, Roald Amundsen once described the most challenging glacier he had come across at the South Pole as ‘The Devil’s Ballroom’ and conquered it in all its icy danger. The tough spirit of Amundsen on this dangerous obstacle is the idea that has born the Ballroom jacket. It is rough, yet flexible, high functional and provides possibly the best weather protection on the market.
The Ballroom is made with 3-layer Stretch wool fabric from Schoeller Switzerland with an added ‘c_change’ membrane that is wind and waterproof, but still provides you breathability when you are warm and insulation when you are cold. All the zippers are watertight, and all seams are sealed for high level of moisture protection. Extra ventilation under-arm is provided with YKK water-resistant zippers, so you will have completely undampened spirits for all the expeditions you undertake.
Amazing durability provided all over this ski jacket, but the Ballroom comes with reinforced Kevla patches at the shoulders and hips, where most scuffs can happen whilst carrying equipment or wearing a backpack. Also included on the jacket is a large chest pocket for your most used valuables and raised hand warmer pockets. The storm hood is entirely helmet friendly and can be adjusted with one hand. Extreme weather protection and comfort are the top aims with all Amundsen garments, and you certainly will not be let down by this ski jacket. It really is all you could ever want for your most challenging adventures.
