La Sportiva Pegasus PrimaLoft
“This hooded, midweight jacket quickly became my go-to piece for chilly days at the crag and while navigating alpine terrain,” says one contributing editor. “It’s the climber-oriented fit that won me over: The torso is trim while the waist and arms are long, so the Pegasus stayed tucked under a harness and always covered my wrists when reaching overhead.” It’s insulated with PrimaLoft One, and a simple onehanded cinch system controls the waist and hood closures. The hood, chin, and hand-warmer pockets are lined with comfortable micro-fleece. The jacket’s Repeloff DWR treatment shed light rain and snow. Minor con: The small, stealthy zips on the hand warmer pockets take a little care to open and close.
