Tsurugi Jacket

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.

Great Jacket Great Service

This Jacket is absolutely perfect. I was looking for a lightweight but super protective shell for a recent trip to the Dolomites and happy I landed on the Tsurugi. Easy access to mid layer and bib pockets without exposing very much to the elements. I am 5’7 190lbs and went with the L which provided a looser fit over my base layer and sweater. Customer service was stellar and provided good advice very quick shipment. Highly recommend this jacket and the company!

simple & highly functional

I got this jacket to have something lighter for backcountry skiing adventures, but now I use it for everything. The fit is perfect for me (size Large, 6'1" 175 lbs). I love that the zipper doesn't mess with my harness when ice climbing. I've put it through a month of heavy use as a ski/alpine guide in Montana and it looks brand new. Photos don't do this thing justice, go try one out!

Sweet shell

I bought this jacket for skiing which it’s great at and the orange is great. I love to be seen. But the lightweight aspect of this makes it great as an all around shell for all times of the year. The fit is perfect. I think the only thing I’d wish for is pit zips. It would make this shell perfect

everything you need nothing you dont

Easy to wear, fits great, lasts for years.
This is my second of this specific jacket and the new one is even better than the first.
This in the only shell I what to wear when walking in a winter wonderland.
