Why Summit Ridge Is Important For Mountaineers
Mountain climbing enthusiasts and adventure lovers require the best and most efficient equipment for their mountain ascents to ensure safety, avoid accidents and prevent injuries.
One of the most important pieces of equipment is the jacket mountaineers use. It needs to be durable and lightweight, with many storage compartments for easy transportation.
Summit Ridge Co. has created a jacket for tough alpine ascents- the Apex G1 Alpine Select. The jacket has been designed specifically keeping these requirements in mind. Made with cutting-edge Nanofi technology for superior water protection and increased durability. The Apex G1 Alpine Select is better than the traditional 2- layer jacket because of its 3-Layered design with a mid-layer called the Apex G1.
The nano face fabric is a high-quality porous fabric, and the membrane has nonporous fabric, this gives an incredible functional temperature range even in extremely low temperatures. The jacket is designed to operate in temperatures from sub-zero (with mid-layer) to warm summer mountain air. The biggest downside to regular performance outerwear is bulk layering, Apex G1 has resolved this issue by introducing premium technology embedded in the Apex G1 jacket. The jacket comes with a few great features such as ultimate breathability, 28,000 mm/g waterproof rating, flexibility, durable 90D face fabric.
