We’re right in the midst of the first proper ski season since “all this” happened, and it looks like international travel could be clawing its way back before all the white stuff has dried up. In that spirit, whether you’re considering jetting off to Courchevel, Zermatt or Kitzbühel, Wired has mapped out a range of ski jackets from a veritable blizzard of choices.
Amongst them : the Ayaq Forno Vest, created and designed from UniverCité – Renens.
Description : It’s easiest to think of this mid-layer gilet, made using 100 per cent recycled and recyclable synthetic fabrics and insulation, as the stripper’s trousers of the alpine world. No, we’ve not been on the glühwein again, but, thanks to a series of magnetic clasps along each side seam, the wearer can whip this layer off when things start to heat up. Here’s the clever part: you can do so without having to remove that outer technical layer first. It’s a genius idea that will almost certainly trickle down to more mainstream brands and offers the perfect way to regulate body temperature when ski touring, with the absolute minimum of faff.
