New product for Spring 2022
falketind Gore-Tex Paclite Jacket ($299) for men and women
This ultralight jacket is made with Gore-Tex Paclite Plus fabric – a soft, lightweight (75/g m2) tiny rip-stop fabric with a 20D recycled nylon face. It’s extremely packable, thin, and lightweight while being waterproof, windproof, and offers excellent breathability. The jacket has printed dots on the backer, with a 3D function to keep distance to the body and create higher friction and a less sticky durable interior. Key features include a helmet-compatible hood with one-hand adjustment, cuffs with Velcro® adjustments, an elastic bottom hem, and zippered chest pocket and front chest ventilation. The jacket has a technical fit with a Y-cut and articulated arms for optimum movement while climbing. A longer cut in the back ensures extra protection and no seams on the shoulders prevents chafing when wearing a backpack.

These lightweight and fully waterproof pants are designed for year-round use and are packable enough to always keep in your pack. The bottom of the pants is made with a 30D 3L Gore-Tex to increase durability where the pants tend to rub against boots. Main features include a Custom-fit waist system™, zippered thigh pocket with a mesh pocket, three quarter side zippers for flexible ventilation and easy on-and-off, a bootlace hook and Velcro® adjustment on the ankles.
falketind Aero60 Hood Jacket ($199) for men and women
This packable wind jacket is made for lightweight mountaineering but excels in other mid-to- high-intensity activities ranging from trail running to ski touring. The aero60 windshield fabric offers the perfect balance between breathability, windproofness, durability and weight.

Designed for all-year mountain sports, this jacket uses an innovative bonded fabric technology, Octa liner, to provide high-quality lightweight insulation and allow for continuous effective moisture transfer, and the 100% recycled fine-knitted recycled polyester warm2 face fabric ensures warmth and wind resistance. Main features include a beanie-compatible hood, elastic piping around the face, a chest pocket, two hand pockets and cuffs with thumb holes.
