Warm no matter what. Lightweight warmth with an ergonomic cut and merino fleece panels create freedom of movement for freeriding and ski touring. The Arete can be stashed away in your pack and will provide instant warmth once layered. It has the additional advantage that it will keep you warm even when wet. 80 Merino Wool Insulation combined with our recycled polyester shell fabric gives you sustainable warmth.
Fits really well and is perfect for a lightweight warm and comfortable day to day to layer. I also used it as my off track warm layer when doing the Milford track, I would have used it as my non waterproof top layer had I not already had one. Gets loads of compliments. Love it!
I love my new jacket! Really impressed with the finishing quality and cut. I bought this online and was right on the borderline between Small & Medium on the chart. I initially ordered small which I found a bit tight in the sleeves when it arrived. Mons Royal customer service was really helpful and made exchanging for a medium simple and stress free. For reference I am 174cm and 70kg with a slim athletic build and while I usually take a small, medium was the perfect fit in this item. A great shoulder season jacket.
I read the great reviews but also had a friend purchase one prior and immediately wanted it. Grabbed the sale and wow. I’m not sure how everyone says this is the perfect fit, but it is! It’s like it was tailored to my measurements. I’m already nervous about replacement down the track. I never want to be without this jacket.
Compact enough for a mid layer on super cold days, warm enough as an outer on dry days. Fantastic!
Warm and functional, whilst looking the goods.
