REVIEW: Lillian & William Guelen
Trekked to Everest Base Camp Feb 2017.
The Merino Ascent soft shell jacket is an exceptional layer that was
perfect outer layer for the trip effectively stopping most of the
wind and
keeping us warm and dry. Lilli practically lived in hers for
the whole
time we were trekking. You and the Wilderness Wear team
have done an
exceptional job in the design and function of the jacket
and we definitely
we be recommending it to people'

We love taking superior performance fabrics, typically reserved for outdoor purists and using them for highly functional, urban and travel designs. Such is the case with our new ‘Ascent’ jacket. The ‘Ascent’ Merino Softshell Jacket is a superb garment for broad ranging outdoor use including snow sports, mountaineering, hiking, camping, cycling and general adventure travel.

It features Schoeller NanoSphere® fabric - hyper-premium, light weight, 4-way stretch softshell material fused with 100% pure Tasmanian Merino wool which is museling-free, to form a remarkably flexible garment that is totally water repellent while retaining breathability and windproof qualities.
Starting with the NanoSphere® fabric, we added Core YKK® hand pockets designed to avoid pack straps, a two-way YKK® main zipper, YKK® chest pocket, articulated elbows and tapered, adjustable, snap cuffs. Importantly the ‘Ascent’ jacket’s is hyper-light, weighing only 550 grams! And it’s striking in both appearance and handle.

Water Repellent Soft Shell

So, what is NanoSphere®?
Nature showed us how. The leaves of certain plants always stay clean because dirt cannot adhere to their finely-structured surfaces. Rain drops roll off and, at the same time, dirt particles are washed off of the leaves. This function is also known as the self-cleaning effect.
On classic surfaces, water, oil and dirt are absorbed by the fabric as the larger contact area allows them to adhere better. On the ‘Ascent’ jacket’s NanoSphere® surface, nanoparticles form a fine structure. Water, dirt and oil only remain on the peaks of the nanostructures and have a diminished contact area. Adhesion is significantly reduced and the drops simply roll off or can be rinsed off with water.
