The 0Hiro provides a robust and resilient shelter from the cold regardless of the forecast.
In your hour of need, shivering your bits off in the deep damp of winter with no layers left, you need a hero... you need... a 0Hiro. The 0Hiro uses PrimaLoft® Silver Hi-Loft Ultra, a synthethic insulation that lofts even when wet, retaining over 85% of its insulating ability. It also survives repeated compressions better than other PrimaLoft® fill, keeping your jacket working for longer.
The 0Hiro uses a combination of extra hardwearing and recycled materials, all treated with a PFC-free water repellent. The outer is made from a bombproof nylon 6,6 fabric, allowing it to withstand a thorough trashing and season after season abuse. It also means you don’t have to worry about leaving a breadcrumb trail of insulation on the mountain behind you.
We’ve added a 5K/5K waterproof membrane to the back of this fabric to give you an extra layer of defence in deep powder, wet sleet and persistent drizzle. The 0Hiro isn’t seam-taped for sustained rainfall, but it’s certainly enough to get you off the hill before the damp seeps in. It’s even been whispered that it'd double up as a mighty fine ski jacket.
For mountaineering use we’ve included a helmet-compatible hood with a wired peak to deflect scattering spindrift and inner cuffs stop snow and draughts from creeping under gloves. The main zip is two-way for belaying ease and the sleeves have slightly less insulation than the body to allow to you swing your axes freely.
The 0Hiro is designed to fit over multiple layers but you may need to size up if you’re planning to use it as an out-and-out belay jacket.
'This jacket is superbly comfortable and just feels like a bit of a fortress on a wild day. For harsh and sometimes downright grim British winter mountain days, the 0Hiro is a reassuring prospect that's going to keep the foul stuff out and the warm in.' - Trek & Mountain (Editor's Choice, Belay Jackets Group Test)
Outer Fabric: 100% nylon 6,6 with a 5K/5K TPU membrane
Lining: 100% recycled polyester, 50 denier
Fill: PrimaLoft® Silver Hi-Loft Ultra (Body: 120gsm / Arms & Hood: 80gsm)
When your 0Hiro stops beading, wash it in pure soap or a tech wash (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) to keep the water repellent treatment working at its best. You may need to reproof your jacket once or twice a year, depending on usage.

How It Is Made
PrimaLoft® Silver Hi-Loft Ultra is comprised of 70% post-consumer recycled fibres and the jacket lining is made from 100% recycled polyester.
The 0Hiro uses a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on its outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that so we've been working hard to get rid of them.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
