Salewa Agner Engineered Cordura Jacket è una giacca da arrampicata e alpinismo realizzata in CORDURA®, materiale resistente allo sfregamento contro la roccia, comodo, versatile e affidabile.
La giacca è morbida e caratterizzata da grande resistenza all’abrasione e lunga durata.
For Spring/Summer 2018, SALEWA is introducing the Agner Engineered Cordura Jacket and Agner Engineered Cordura Pant. Made from rock-resistant, stretch fabric, they are engineered with woven-in CORDURA® fiber technology to withstand the demands of alpine climbing without requiring additional reinforcement.
As a technical mountain brand based in the heart of the Dolomites, SALEWA has a proven pedigree of engineering strong and light apparel and equipment for climbers and mountaineers. SALEWA’s main summer mountaineering activity is alpine climbing – multi-pitching in remote alpine terrain. Today’s climbers, such as Grignetta d’Oro award-winner Simon Gietl, who recently completed the first winter enchainment of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo/ Drei Zinnen in the Dolomites, climb fast and light. To match this new style of alpinism, climbers need strong, lightweight apparel that moves with them.
SALEWA’s response is the hybrid Agner Engineered Cordura Jacket and Agner Engineered Cordura Pant. What really sets them apart is the CORDURA® fiber technology – special yarns are woven in to reinforce their double-weave Durastretch fabric. Rock-resistant CORDURA® yarns are well known for their high strength-to-weight, versatility and reliability. As this woven-in technology is engineered directly into the material, there is no need for patches or extra seams (every extra seam inhibits stretch). The result is a unique, lighter, softer-feel fabric with additional abrasion-resistance and durability.
Dennis Hinze, Creative Director SALEWA, explains, “Based on the OutDoor Industry Award-winning Agner Engineered Pant, we have further developed our ‘strong & light’ concept by using engineered woven fabrics with CORDURA® fiber technology in a wider number of new styles in our 2018 Spring/Summer Alpine Climbing & Approach collection.”
True to the maxim, “Take nothing more than you need; everything else is just weight,” Agner Engineered Cordura Jacket is a strong and light, hybrid engineered softshell designed for alpine climbing from spring through to autumn. Featuring CORDURA® fiber technology for enhanced rock resistance and 4-way stretch fabric at back for breathability and complete freedom of movement. Its underarm gusset construction provides unrestricted reach for high holds without hem lift. In addition, its DWR (durable water repellent) finish is PFC free, i.e. biodegradable and more environmentally friendly.
The go-to pant for alpine routes – the Agner Engineered Cordura Pant is SALEWA’s lightest alpine climbing pant. Despite its light weight, durability is the name of the game. The reinforced knees are engineered with CORDURA® fiber technology for enhanced rock resistance. And the combination of light 4-way Durastretch fabric at the back, gusset construction and tight fit at lower leg allows full mobility and makes them very comfortable to climb in. With a PFC-free DWR finish for weather protection
SALEWA’s Agner collection is named after Monte Agner (2,872m), a remote and impressive mountain in the Dolomites, long associated with alpine climbing. SALEWA’s Agner collection is designed specifically for multi-pitch climbing in such alpine environments.
