When it's wet, windy, and you're a long way from home, functional protection is what matters most. Lightweight, extremely breathable, and able to move with you, the Pedroc Hybrid Jacket is built exclusively for fast and light hiking and approaches when you only have room in your pack for the best gear.

The Pedroc Hybrid Jacket has been designed according to the SALEWA Body Mapping system which use different materials for different body parts in order to achieve ideal performance in each area: protection, insulation, breathability and stretchability. The shoulders, arms and hood feature the Power Xtreme fabric with breathable and waterproof membrane to protect most exposed areas from rain.

The chest is made of Durastretch Flexlite windproof 4-way stretch fabric with DWR treatment to guarantee protection and freedom of movement, whilst mesh inserts with antibacterial treatment by Polygenie® are placed where you need maximum transport of moisture away from the body.

ABOUT RED BULL X-ALPS

The 2015 Red Bull X-Alps will be the seventh edition of the world’s toughest adventure race in which athletes must hike or fly 1,038km across the Alps from Salzburg to Monaco in the fastest time possible. The race starts on July 5, 2015. It’s an epic undertaking that can involve hiking up to 100km of mountain terrain in a day – or flying at altitudes in excess of 4,000m. The race demands not only a very high level of endurance fitness but expert paragliding experience. The 2013 edition was the fastest on record with 10 athletes reaching Monaco. It
was won by Christian Maurer (SUI) in 6d 23hr 40m. New in 2015 is the one-day Powertraveller Prologue on July 2. Athletes start and finish in Fuschl am See, passing the Turnpoints of the Zwölferhorn and Schafberg peaks. The first three athletes each gain an additional Ledlenser Nightpass and a five-minute headstart on the main race start.
