Description

The Keeshond will keep you warm, cosy and comfortable, whether worn under a softshell for bombing down a ski slope or slogging up a sheltered col in winter, axe in hand.

  • Cosy high loft fleece has an exceptional warmth to weight ratio
  • High loft fleece is highly breathable for working up a sweat
  • Gridded fleece panelling under the arms to dump excess heat

The Keeshond’s high loft fleece has an exceptionally high warmth-to-weight ratio. These fluffy fibres trap lots of pockets of insulating air to keep you nice and warm. But they also have a really open weave that provides plenty of ventilation. This makes the Keeshond a fantastic outer layer in still conditions and an exceptionally breathable midlayer under a waterproof or soft shell.

A combination of the high loft fleece and gridded fleece side panels keeps you cosy without leaving you in a sweaty mess the moment your activity levels pick up. The grid fleece under your arms and down your sides provides less insulation where you get the hottest. As well as stopping you from overheating, these stretchy panels create a more comfortable fit for moving in.

Low profile grid fleece cuffs layer neatly under an outer jacket, with integrated thumb loops to keep your sleeves in place when you’re reaching for your next axe placement. They also prevent cold spots on your wrists when you’re wearing winter gloves. A tall collar with high loft fleece lining keeps you snug against the draughts.

We’ve added open handwarmer pockets for burying freezing fingers in. These also double up as internal dump pockets for warming up your spare gloves. Finally, that zipped chest pocket is handy for stashing your compass, lift pass, or change for a Gluhwein on the way home.

Whether you're brewing in a Baltic bothy, out on the hill for a cold crisp walk, or looking for a serious dose of warmth after an icy plunge in wild waters, the Keeshond will keep you warm.

Fit Guide
Tight Slim Regular Relaxed
Close fitting designed to conform to your body shape. Slim and slightly contoured but not form fitting. A comfortable fit that's not too tight, nor too loose. A looser fit with a bit more space but not too baggy.
