For swift mountain pursuits when every gram counts, the new Ascensionist Jacket offers comfortable, reliable protection in a superbreathable, highly packable shell. Ideal for light-and-fast alpinism or high-output ski touring, the Ascensionist provides the refuge you need at just 13.1 oz—the lightest technical shell we make.

Description  Features

In the mountains, the lighter you pack, the faster you have to travel to avoid being caught out where you don’t want to be. How fast you travel is related to how light you can safely pack. It comes down to balance—exactly what we kept front of mind when building the Ascensionist Jacket. Combining the feature set critical to alpinists and ski tourers with the light weight required by those booking through the backcountry, the Ascensionist hits the sweet spot as the lightest technical shell we make. It’s built with GORE-TEX Active fabric with C-KNIT® Backer Technology—a lightweight, waterproof, superbreathable 3-layer fabric construction for high-output, high-velocity activities. C-KNIT consists of extremely fine yarns that stretch, breathe and offer a smoother feel on the innermost layer of the shell.

The Optimal Visibility Hood features a laminated visor, fits over a helmet and adjusts at two points so you can fine-tune your vision. The full-mobility sleeves let you swing a tool or coil a rope without the hem of the jacket hiking up, and watertight pit zips offload excess heat. Low-profile cuffs secure with a hook-and-loop closure; an intuitive Cohaesive™ cord-lock system shuts out the elements at the hem. Seams throughout are minimal and narrowly taped to cut bulk. One chest pocket with a watertight zipper holds valuables; two zippered handwarmer pockets sit high and away from a harness or waistbelt; inside, a stretch catch-all pocket handles gloves, a headlamp or other essentials.

 
  • Lightweight, waterproof and ultrabreathable 3-layer GORE-TEX Active fabric featuring C-KNIT™ Backer Technology is soft, comfortable and built for moving fast 
  • Optimal Visibility Hood with laminated visor is helmet-compatible and two-way-adjustable to provide good visibility in poor conditions
  • Two high handwarmer pockets with watertight zippers stay clear of a harness or pack waistbelt; one exterior welted, left-chest pocket with DWR (durable water repellent)-treated zipper; interior stretch catch-all pocket 
  • Exposed, watertight two-way pit zips provide ventilation and reach without raising the body of the jacket 
  • Cuffs feature minimal self-fabric hook-and-loop closure; Cohaesive® embedded cord-lock system has two contact points at hem for intuitive one-handed operation  Minimal seams are reinforced with narrow seam tape for low bulk 
  • Concealed RECCO® reflector

UK Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday, on the same day. Free shipping is offered for UK Orders over £15 order value. The form of shipping will be at our discretion and will be at the most cost effective service. For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. Some parcels may require a signature.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu, First Class post is available, as is Next Working Day Delivery. We can arrange Next Day Delivery for a Saturday (when the order is placed on Friday) - call us for charges on an individual basis (01740 661467).

EU Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.

So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options. Typically the service we can offer is 2,3 or 4 working days, if you require a faster delivery than is showing on the drop down menu please contact us at info@worldbackpacker.co.uk as we may be able to help.

Rest of World Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
