Designed as an active alpine mid layer for cold, high-output days of skiing, climbing, snowshoeing or hiking, the Men’s Helix Long Sleeve Zip combines sustainable materials with a technical design. In the body, we used our MerinoLOFT™ insulation, which provides a warm, breathable and natural alternative to synthetic insulations. The 100% recycled polyester face fabric features a DWR that sheds light precipitation. Merino jersey stretch side panels help regulate body temperature on active days, and the 100% woven merino lining ensures a cozy feel inside. Zippered hand and chest pockets keeps small essentials like lip balm, snacks and your phone close at hand.

The merino is an ancient breed of alpine sheep. Over millions of years they evolved a superfine, highly breathable fleece to protect them from freezing winters and scorching summers. It will do the same for you.
Merino naturally keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather.
Merino absorbs and releases vapour to prevent overheating and clamminess.
Merino gives you extra protection against the sun's harmful rays, naturally.
Naturally anti-bacterial, it can be worn for days without washing.
