British mountain clothing brand Jöttnar launches new ski collection
Jöttnar is not your typical outdoor clothing company. With no room for compromise, they deliver an unrivalled quality of technical outdoor clothing designed specifically for those striving to push the limits and reach the most extreme high-alpine demands.
The concept behind Jöttnar was born during Arctic Circle training by two former Royal Marine commandos, Tommy Kelly and Steve Howarth. Kelly and Howarth are both keen skiers and mountaineers with a wealth of first-hand experience operating in harsh and inhospitable conditions.
Drawing on the experience of its two founders, Jöttnar develops innovative protective wear using only the finest materials and construction methods. If Kelly and Howarth’s credentials aren’t enough, all of the clothing is tried and tested on Jöttnar’s Pro-Team. The Pro-Team is a tribe of climbers, alpinists, skiers, speedflyers, BASE jumpers, wingsuit flyers and survival specialists who all play a part in testing and developing Jöttnar’s range of activewear.

It offers 900 Fill Power hydrophobic goose down insulation wrapped inside a waterproof, breathable shell and further zoned with HERMOLITE® synthetic insulation in potential wet-out areas. A jacket unbeatable in keeping you warm and dry in harsh weather.
Odin – New for 2018/19, this hardshell mountain jacket is built from new Jöttnar SKJOLDR™ windproof, waterproof, breathable fabric.
