WINNER: swampmonster

This winter, Salewa is rolling out its new wool technology in a variety of garments. And yes, this insulation is genuinely unique.

TirolWool Celliant is a reflective hybrid insulation that outperforms conventional wool and synthetic alternatives. Efficient, warm, soft and low-bulk, it is created by blending 40% natural TirolWool with 60% Celliant, a polyester fibre containing thermo-reactive minerals that reflect and recycle radiant heat back to the body.

TirolWool Celliant works while you're active, and also in static situations thanks to its heat-retention and infrared reflection properties, so it directs warmth back to the body. Celliant also increases the thermo-regulating function of TirolWool, improving its warmth-to-weight ratio and making it feel softer and more comfortable to wear. Originally used in medicine, Celliant is permanent as it is blended into a resin and embedded into the core of each fibre.

And the sheep? Resident in South Tyrol, these tough hombres live year-round at 2,000m in harsh alpine conditions. Their fleece has been used to make warm clothing for centuries, and is known for its outstanding warmth, breathability, thermo-regulation and hydrophobic qualities.

By choosing to source local wool, Dolomites-based Salewa is reducing transportation and cutting the product carbon footprint. The wool is a natural, renewable material and is chlorine free, while Celliant is made from polyester yarns, 70% of which are recycled from European post-consumer waste.

Salewa is using TirolWool Celliant in several garments this winter, all available in men's and women's versions. The Ortles TW CLT Jacket provides technical protection for mountaineering with its insulated hood, 'free motion' design to ensure no hem-lift while climbing, and ergonomically shaped 'reach high' sleeves. The outer fabric is a bluesign-approved ripstop nylon shell with Powertex reinforcement on the shoulders. There are three outer and two inner pockets, an inner zipped pocket, and the weight is 557g for a size large.

We have a Ortles TW CLT Jacket (men's or women's) to give away to one lucky winner!
