Peak Performance is a company founded by skiers. When it started in Sweden in 1986, some days the telephones weren’t manned and the mail wasn’t opened – staff tossed design ideas around while riding the ski lift up to the top of Åre’s highest peak. Since then they have expanded their offerings to include all mountain pursuits. One of their technical mountain lines, Black Light, is more than ready for extreme elements and unforgiving terrain.
This mountaineering mid/base layer pant is super-stretchy, durable and comfortable. The product is highly water repellent thanks to Schoeller’s EcoRepel, as well as very breathable. It has a slim cut with articulated knees and comfortable elastic waistband. There is also a printed reinforcement on the outside of the knees and inside of the bottom cuff for friction protection. This is a lightweight hiking, trekking and general mountaineering pant that weighs in at only 350 gr/pc. Women’s and men’s styles available.
Delivering warmth with flexibility, this super-light and sleek down jacket comes with an impressive range of features you can rely on anytime you’re in the mountains. Crafted from light, durable Pertex Quantum GL and goose down, it comes with under-arm zipped vents, chest pocket, adjustable hood, elastic cuffs and drawcord bottom hem. It is designed to be used as a standalone jacket or as an insulating liner under a shell. It’s an essential for your kit and even comes packed in a cuben-fiber bag. Women’s and men’s styles available.
