adidas develops jacket for periods of downtime

All multi-sport adventurers respect the periods of calm that surround the contrastingly high-intensity action in the outdoors. These include tuning bikes in the carpark, belays at the crag, and post-trail run cool downs. These quintessential periods of downtime are important, valued and require us to have hard-working, versatile equipment.

To stay warm during lull time between pursuits, the adidas Terrex has developed a Climaheat Agravic Down Hooded Jacket, which features Climaheat Technology with a patent-pending baffle construction, where every other baffle is bigger, overlapping the stitching lines to eliminate cold spots. Additional seals at the cuffs and collar traps warm air inside the jacket and help prevent heat loss for when the conditions really start to bite.

Lightweight durability on the outside fabric is guaranteed thanks to the 25g/sqm light Pertex Quantum GL fabric which is engineered to trap still air and aid insulation efficiency. Meanwhile a DWR treatment also sheds light rain and snow. Finally, the Agravic also neatly packs into the chest pocket for easy stow-away and to double up as a pillow, for travel on the road or camp-outs in mountain huts.

“During the moments before and after outdoor adventures, the priority is to stay dry, warm and still look sharp. The Agravic Down Hooded Jacket blends smart features with slick design to get the optimal downtime, from trails to the bar,” the company comments.

adidas Terrex is the outdoor creator brand in the outdoors, which strives for new, innovative design solutions, made possible by integrating adidas’ own technologies, as well as the finest materials from partners including Gore-Tex; PrimaLoft; Polartec for apparel; and Stealth and Continental rubber for foot wear.

“We are proud to count outstanding athletes as Sasha Di Giulian, Shauna Coxsey, Kevin Jorgeson, Martin Söderström, Kai Lightner, Mina Markovič, Luis Alberto Hernando and the Huber Buam in our family and to be a long-standing title sponsor for adidas Rockstars, the contest for the international bouldering elite,” the company reports.
