Nearly weightless Winterwear. Yeti's Cut and Affinity
Nearly weightless winter wear
The new down jackets, Cut and Affinity, from down specialist Yeti weighs from just 200 grams. But the airy jackets provide a soft warmth that will guard you through a biting cold snowy winter.
Imagine wearing a snug down jacket keeping you warm in frost, snow and brisk winds, but weighing less than a light summer jacket. Impossible? Not any more. Yeti’s new down jackets for outdoor enthusiasts, Cut and Affinity, weighs a mere 200 grams. The airiness of the jacket is surprising as you put it on. It feels almost weightless and turns one’s mind to astronauts bouncing lightly on the surface of the moon.
The secret is in the fabric
Actually there is a little “rocket science” behind the astonishing airiness. One of the secrets behind Yeti’s unique lightness is the Next to Nothing 2.0 Technology: An ultra lightweight, tear proof nylon fabric that weighs only 20 grams per square meter making it the lightest down proof fabric available today. Each thread is as thin as 1/20 of a human hair. The weaving of Yeti’s exclusive fabric is so complicated that it can only be done in one factory in the world situated in Japan.
Very warm and very movable
The other secret is the down filling. The extremely light fabric is filled 100% with the finest lightweight Crystal Down, pure white goose down with a fill power of amazing 800+ which gives the jacket premium insulation abilities without compromising on movability as the filling compresses easily. So when wearing Cut or Affinity on a winter’s day you are kept very warm but still feel as free and light as the snowflakes around you.
Packable in its own pocket
The down’s ability to compress and the ultra thin fabric is used cleverly in another feature of the jackets. They are packable into their own pockets and when packed they only take up as much space as a grapefruit. The packability makes the jackets ideal for both trekking and travelling.
The ultimate winter jacket
Cut and Affinity are created for extreme adventurers but suitable for anyone looking for the ultimate winter jacket. Both hood and hem are adjustable for a completely tight fit. Cut and Affinity keeps you warm and comfy from the first cold days in the fall and all through the winter and early spring. For extreme temperatures Cut and Affinity can be used as an insulating layer under a shell jacket.
Cut for men comes in three colours: Methyl Blue/Bottle blue, Dark Gull Grey and Dark Gull Grey/Navy.
Affinity for women comes in Dark Gull Grey and Imperial Purple.
Yeti – 30 years as The Down Specialist
In 2013 Yeti celebrates its 30th anniversary. Yeti was founded in 1983 specialising in extreme outdoor down sleeping bags of the finest quality, which later evolved into a line of high-end outdoor clothing as well. Yeti is a brand for those who do not consider fashion and nature to be inconsistent.
Worlds First Plant Based Nylon From Yeti
World’s first plant based nylon from Yeti
Eco-friendly products are more popular than ever, especially among consumers who love nature and the outdoors. Down specialist Yeti introduces the world’s first jacket made from a new eco-friendly plant based nylon in the spring 2014 collection.
Outdoor enthusiasts explore and adore nature around the world and are naturally interested in protecting it. Therefore eco-friendly and sustainable products are a hit in the outdoor industry and the manufacturers are exploring cutting edge eco-friendly technologies to enable nature lovers to protect nature while enjoying it.
For the spring 2014 collection outdoor specialist Yeti introduces the jacket North made from a new ground breaking plant-based nylon. This is the first garment in the world made from plant based nylon.
The new eco-friendly nylon, called Next To Nature, is based on renewable plant oil instead of fossil oil. The oil is extracted from the ricinius-plant, a non-food plant that grows mainly on dry wasteland and does not occupy farming land. Further more ricinius is a robust plant that requires significant less pesticide than other plants. Nylon based on a renewable source such as plant oil is much more environmentally friendly than traditional nylon made from scarce petroleum products.
Non-water absorbing down filling
But eco-friendliness does not equal compromising on functionality. Quite the contrary. Not only does the plant-based fabric maintain an inherent highly water repellent surface feature. The water repellent outer shell is also combined with another ground-breaking invention, the exclusive Crystal Down Dry filling. The filling is treated with QuixDown Technology by Toray, preventing the down from absorbing water. These two features keep you dry and warm even through heavy showers.
Outdoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013
The eco-friendly and water repellent jacket, North, was awarded with the prestigious GOLD Outdoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013 with the words “particularly innovative design and above-average product quality”.
Yeti Ambition Jacket Outdoor Winner
Ambition Jacket by Yeti wins the “outdoor” magazine EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD 2012
It is the differences that win the argument. Least weight provides maximum warmth. If these differences are dressed stylishly, it is a jacket by Yeti.
It is the high-tech material and the design of the Ambition Jacket by Yeti that convinced the critical experts of the magazine “Outdoor” to award it “Editor’s Choice” as a jacket suitable for expeditions.
More than 500 products of outdoor equipment and clothing are vetted professionally by the editorial team every year and only the best of the best receive this annual award. The Ambition, which won the “reddot” design award and the OutDoor Industry Award in 2011, utterly convinced the editorial team. Although the jacket only weighs 400 grams its filling consisting of the best “Crystal Down” keeps the user reliably warm. The down clusters stay where they belong due to the high tech “Next to Nothing” fabric. The unique construction of the weave of the fabric although extremely light make it down proof. Box wall construction gives optimal insulation.
Ambition is the first choice for adventurers – and now with the approval of one of Europe’s top magazines.
The Ambition down jacket coloured Black/Light Grey or Treetop/Light Grey RRP £550 and is available in specialist retailers.
