adidas continue to produce mountain specific clothing that is functional and stylish. A trip across to the mainland shows just how popular this brand is in all mountain sports. It’s only a matter of time before the brand expands throughout the UK.  We’ve picked the best items for climbers this autumn and winter.

Terrex Active Shell Jacket


The Terrex Active Shell Jacket employs revolutionary Gore-Tex® Active Shell fabric to give the wearer maximum breathability and weather protection. Its minimalist design includes essential features, such as an adjustable, helmet-compatible hood and two zippered hand pockets, but employs an elasticised bottom hem in place of traditional tightening cords to reduce bulk and save on weight. Furthermore, thanks to a tailored FORMOTION® fit, the jacket moves with the body and does not bunch up, even during the most dynamic movements.

Terrex Skyclimb Insulated Jacket


The Terrex Skyclimb Insulated Jacket was designed especially for winter sports that are too high output for a traditional insulation piece. The carefully hybridised construction places PrimaLoft® insulation over the core and neck, where it is needed most, and a moisture-wicking, four-way stretch, softshell fabric over areas where perspiration is likely. The result is a mid- or outer layer perfect for strenuous ski touring or winter climbing.
