Rakaposhi is also known as Dumani (“Mother of Mist” or “Mother of Clouds”).

Rakaposhi Jacket & Pant

Japanese climbers crowned last July 2nd 2019 the RAKAPOSHI mountain via a new route on its previously virgin south face.

The mountaineers were equipped with some of Ternua’s most technical and sustainable garments, some of which were customised to their individual specifications and needs.

Kazuya Hiraide and Kenro Nakajima are two of the most prominent figures on the current alpine panorama, not only in Japan but in the whole world.

The Rakaposhi ascent has been awarded with the Piolet d’Or 2020 (third award for Hiraide). A year ago, they received the Piolet d’Or for another activity carried out in Pakistan (Shispare).

Together with the development of an improved high altitude expedition suit for Kazuya Hiraide and Kenro Nakajima, TERNUA started the development of a new Alpinist Jacket to be included in its PROTECH range.

Following the technical inputs and demand definition communicated by Hiraide and Nakajima, we were able to define the key features and fabrics to be included and used in what would end being the most breathable Alpinist Jacket ever.
