THE ASCENTEC ONE THERMOPLUME® INSULATION JACKET

THE VERSATILE PERFORMANCE JACKET WITH THERMAL MANAGEMENT  

The ASCENTEC ONE is our first product and the result of over a year of material research, design development and intensive field testing. A total of three prototypes were manufactured until the jacket met all of our requirements. Our goal was to develop a versatile performance jacket that meets the high demands of alpine activities, from mountaineering or mountain hiking to skiing. The ASCENTEC ONE was developed in close cooperation with alpinists and climbers. All materials and designs were tested in different environments and weather conditions, e.g. during rock climbing in Joshua Tree, California, on high-alpine glacier tours in the Alps or in the climbing areas of the Vogtland, our home region in Germany.

 

Designed in Germany. Made in Europe. Tested around the World.

RELIABLE THERMAL PROTECTION

Mountaineers and outdoor enthusiasts know the problem: Natural down has a very good thermal performance, but it loses insulating power when it gets wet and it takes a long time to dry. For the ASCENTEC ONE we use ThermoPlume®, an innovative high-performance synthetic down from the insulation specialist PrimaLoft®, which mimics the lightweight warmth, softness and compressibility of natural down. This insulation, however, warms reliably even when wet. The hydrophobic and fast-drying properties of ThermoPlume® make the ASCENTEC ONE unbeatable in high humidity or on sweaty ascents.

HEAT WHERE YOUR BODY NEEDS IT THE MOST

Another special feature of the ASCENTEC ONE is the use of advanced body-mapping techniques. We apply a combination of strategically distributed micro and nano baffles to achieve thermal efficiency. The nano baffles under the arms and along the side of the body allow for greater flexibility and heat release during strenuous activities, while the larger micro baffles allow for heat retention in key areas of the body. This, in combination with the ThermoPlume® insulation, results in an efficient thermal management, which enables the use of the ASCENTEC ONE across activities with different thermal demands.

In our successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter at the end of last year, backers from 18 countries pre-ordered the ASCENTEC ONE, helping us to bring this advanced performance jacket to life. Now, the ASCENTEC ONE is being produced by our European manufacturer.
