100 years ago the first skiers could be found barreling down the slopes in grandma’s knitted wool sweater. Today, knitwear is a machine-made, high-tech product. In the VAUDE Larice LesSeam Jacket, Comfort Mapping and the sophisticated, seamless circular knitting process brings more flexibility to your tour and is the first choice for performance-minded ski tourers. The jacket – and the matching vest – also scores high with warm PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Eco padding on the chest for extra warmth when carving down slopes.
Ski touring apparel has to meet a number of requirements. It should be flexible, have a motion-friendly cut, ensure that sweat is wicked away as quickly as possible, and retain body heat effectively. The new VAUDE Larice LesSeam Jacket cleverly combines these four factors and can be worn as a second layer over a base layer or even mid layer in dry weather.
Maximum comfort due to minimal use of seams
LesSeam is a play on the words “Less seams”. The seam-reduced construction alone offers a great advantage in terms of comfort (fewer abrasion and pressure points), while the stretchable knit construction offers a high degree of flexibility. This is a hit with touring skiers who don’t want anything getting in their way when they’re out on the mountains, and it offers the necessary comfort to make ski touring pure pleasure.
VAUDE manufactures both jackets and vests with a circular knitting process that uses polyamide yarn containing recycled components. This saves resources, as there is no waste during production. On the other hand, it enables a very close, body-hugging fit and optimum support for full-motion activities.
Perfect fit for high speed action
The Larice LesSeam Jacket and LesSeam Vest are first choice with performance-driven tourers looking for innovative ski touring apparel with best possible function.
A variety of material structures are used at different body zones matched to how much sweat is produced at each. This “Comfort Mapping” results in optimum climate management, excellent breathability and previously unattained freedom of movement. At the front, PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Eco is used, which provides pleasant warmth even in the coldest winter weather. The outer shell also boasts outstanding windproof properties, making the Larice LesSeam Jacket incredibly comfortable to wear, especially on demanding ski and winter tours.
Featuring only the essentials and uncompromising functionality, the jacket and vest will quickly become your new favorite touring partners, and definitely your first choice for cross-country skiing or winter running.
