To love mountains is to protect mountains. The new Shuksan series from VAUDE is aimed at green pioneers, real alpinists who want to leave new, greener footprints and lasting marks. To protect fossil raw materials, VAUDE uses a high degree of recycling material and environmental know-how. The robust, elastic outer fabric is made of 85% recycled polyamide, the backing is made from 100% recycled polyester. An innovative PTFE-free Ceplex Green membrane liner consists partly of recycled polyurethane with S-Cafe®, which is obtained from reprocessed coffee. Up-cycling par excellence!
Form follows function
Designed to the last detail are the touring pants. The Shuksan Hybrid Pants is water-tight, windproof and extremely breathable at the front and buttocks thanks to the innovative and environmentally friendly 3-layer material. The back of the legs and waistband are extremely vapor permeable due to the very elastic Windproof 80 Softshell fabric. Thanks to side ventilation zippers, the body’s climate is well regulated while the slim and sporty fit allows superb walking comfort while wearing skis or for light ascents. The slim fit along with elastic cordura® trimming on the inside of the leg cuffs provides protection against sharper objects such as skis and is ideal for when you are wearing crampons. Two pockets at the front make room for an avalanche safety device, map or a snack and even while wearing a climbing harness both pockets are easily accessable.
The Shuksan 3L Jacket is also fully tailored to the needs of alpinists who are versed in handling rope and an ice-axe. Thanks to the longer arm length, the jacket won’t ride-up out of the harness, no matter how wide apart each climbing maneuver is. An adjustable hood is fully helmet-compatible while roomy front pockets offer enough space for gloves or a map or keep skins close at hand and at a constant temperature while ski touring. Two side, higher placed pockets provide space for smaller items and a beanie or ski goggles can be stored in the mesh pocket.
A clean, technical look, high stretch factor and sophisticated performance make the Shuksan series the first choice for alpinists.
