In this year's Peak Performance winter offering, the Alpine Collection has been reworked to continue the heritage of the beloved original line. First launched in 2009, the Alpine collection features performance-focused jackets and pants that have proven to be a favorite of professional mountain guides and ski legends.

Alpine Gore-Tex 3L Jacket

€650 on

Stacked with practical features yet down-to-earth in its design, the Alpine 3L jacket has everything you need for off-piste adventures. Its 3-layer Gore-Tex C-KNIT fabric is as soft and comfortable as it is robust and durable, keeping you protected from both water and wind. There’s a Gore-Text stretch panel on the back for additional freedom of movement, and the chest radio pocket—a beloved feature of the original Alpine jacket—makes a triumphant return.

Alpine Gore-Tex 3L Pants

The Alpine pants are, of course, the perfect match for the Alpine jacket. They sport the same Gore-Tex C-KNIT fabric as the jacket, Cordura reinforcement and snow gaiters at the bottom of the leg, and removable, adjustable suspenders. No doubt about it: These pants are built for business.
