Introducing a State-of-the-Art Jacket Designed Specifically to Withstand Tough Alpine Ascents

The Apex G1 Jacket is a revolutionary jacket that has been designed keeping in mind the tough mountainous terrain and harsh weather conditions mountaineers have to face. The jacket claims to have redesigned the average jacket available on the market, making the Apex G1 the most durable and breathable jacket till now.

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.

Unmatched Features

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. 

New Locked Gear

The Locked section is where you can find new upcoming products ready to be finalized for release. This section is where you are able to comment on features that you want to be added to the product. If your comment gets enough engagement, we will add your feature to the product itself. This is the first-time customers are able to directly interact with the final design of products.

The Apex G1 is currently on IndieGoGo as an in-demand campaign and has gone on to raise 300% of its funding goal. Previously, it has raised over $38,000 through another crowdfunding platform. You can find the jacket here.

Based out of Eau Claire, Summit Ridge Co was founded in 2017 by two 21-year-old (mountain) climbers, DeShawn Gilles and Andrew Rene. The cousins started off with making T-shirts and in 2020, decided to start creating high-quality gear and garments that are specifically designed for the backcountry and focused mostly on climbing. Summit Ridge Co. is a sustainable private company and believes in the mantra that “a healthy planet makes healthy people.”
