Tsurugi Jacket 2.0
A masterwork of uncluttered presentation, yet unconditional performance.
Signifying ‘sword,’ TSURUGI is a simple yet striking vetement, whose blade-like efficiency is visible in the bold slash of its asymmetrical zipper. Our Tsurugi Jacket is a backcountry icon, an Apex-Award winning product preferred by ski guides from Grand Hirafu to Alyeska to Montana. Now redesigned with our Täsmä precision-response fabric that variably adjusts to weather conditions, assuring the perfect balance of protection, breathability and comfort during activities that require unpredictable alternation between periods of high performance such as skiing and climbing (touring). Ideally suited to the Tsurugi’s core functionality.
Outdoor professionals praise its looser fit, stark minimalism, and lightweight, highly breathable protection. These are veterans who value the speed provided by frictionless, unadorned surfaces. Simply put, when you have a heavy dose of skills you need less equipment. And skills weigh nothing. If this is you, then Tsurugi is your weapon of choice.
The jacket is so light and soft you barely notice you're wearing a highly functional shell; ample room for snowboarding, hiking and the high exertion of short hikes and backcountry touring. This is the perfect piece for all season mountain wear, except for the coldest winter days in the Rockies. Enough room to layer up underneath without feeling constricted. The impressive design looks good on everyone without trying.
