The Torres Gilet is ideal to take on all hill activities to provide fast core warmth.
Most hill activities intersperse exertion with stationary interludes. To remain comfortable and safe throughout, it is practical to add a synthetic overlayer quickly on top of your kit.
The synthetic 100g fill offers insulation even in wet weather and the insulation extends to the handwarming pockets. It uses minimal space in the pack but delivers a high warmth per weight ratio.
The Torres Medio Gilet can be worn over a baselayer or an outer layer to warm you quickly. It packs down small and has useful pockets for secure storage:
- Gilet packs down easily into its own secure internal chest pocket for easy carrying.
- Handwarming from two large insulated and zipped pockets.
- The scooped tail and adjustable hem help retain body heat whether it is worn over an outer layer or baselayer.
