For jackets, I have two go-to brands depending on whether I'm looking for a down jacket or standard light-insulation jacket. The former is the Patagonia Down Sweater (600/800 Fill Power) and the latter is the Arc'Teryx Atom SL/LT Jacket. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow on Periscope @ https://www.periscope.tv/the_pomp Follow on Spotify @ http://tybp.us/1Oh2S5P Like on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/jamesbuithepomp Follow on Instagram @ http://instagram.com/the_pomp_official Follow on Twitter @ https://twitter.com/ThePomp

The key to all-round comfort while out and about is a good baselayer, midlayer and finally your outerlayer. A midlayer determines your overall warmth more than any other layer and comes in many different variations to suit your surroundings. In this video we online the three main midlayer types, which are best for which activities and what the benefits and negatives of each one are.

While on the road in the Northern Scotland, Patagonia climbing ambassador, Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll reflects on the garments that have accompanied him on expeditions all around the world. "A piece that is full of patches and repairs has a spirit. It has a story attached to it!" says Sean. The stories we wear are worth hanging onto, repairing and using as long as possible. That's the heart of Worn Wear and the story of Sean. http://www.patagonia.com/wornwear Directed by Keith Malloy Cinematography Donnie Hedden Producer Monika McClure Original Score Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll Nick Coventry Editor Andrew Schoneberger Sound John Smetana Additional footage: Stephane Hanssens Benjamin Ditto Klaas Willems Sam Van Brempt Evrard Wendenbaum Tim Walker
Although the weather looked a bit dodgy Ben and I headed up to climb the Cordier Pillar on the Grand Charmoz, TD-. It was the perfect opportunity to test the Arc'teryx Alpha SV jacket in the mountains it was designed for. The route was amazing, but a bit loose! 8 hours up, 4 hours of rappelling and a long walk back to the valley floor! And the jacket? Worth every penny, an incredible bit of gear, I can't wait to try it on winter and mixed climbs! Check out the Arc'teryx Jackets: https://goo.gl/5K2589
