Carlos: Moving forward on a ridge in 25 m/s wind: Carlos wore two baselayer layers and a down jacket under the GORE-TEX PRO jacket. For him the perfect combination.
Carlos while attempting to cross the Hardangervidda in winter. He and his companions found the refuge after 7 hours: at -25°, almost 1 meter of fresh snow in a 36° slope. They were not able to finish the crossing in these conditions.
Tough days in Voss: Perfect for testing the ability to protect against extreme wind, cold and humidity.
Test area Voss: Snow and water glided down Carlos' test jacket.
Voss ski area in the lift: Unlike the test jacket, the water had collected on Carlos' trousers and his legs felt uncomfortably cold.
Lunchtime for Carlos in Olsskavlen, Voss.
Carlos on a beautiful winter day in Norway. The difference in weight between the new GORE-TEX PRO jacket and his older version is clearly noticeable for him.
Carlos takes fancy pictures of rain "floating" over the jacket. No moisture got inside.
For climber Andi, the jacket offers "outstanding freedom of movement".
Cold, wet and mud during mixed climbing for Andi - she has to "scrub" hard over the rock - the jacket didn't mind that.
Calum: "We are running into a "Cairngorm" snowstorm. Very strong wind and snow, but the jacket kept me dry without getting too hot."
Calum on ski tour in Aravis: “The Jacket breathes and vents nicely, I haven’t felt really sweaty when skinning, even on a 1000m+ day in the blazing sun.”
For Calum the test jacket is the best for winter climbing - and he has a lot of jackets.

Calum with students: "At work I notice the breathability more because I adjust my clothing layers less, but I didn't sweat."
