Our fleeciest fleece, the Sastrugi is a proper winter weight jacket for the frostiest of days and bone-chilling winter camping.
Furrier than an ice age mammal, the Sastrugi’s thick, 100% recycled pile fleece fabric traps a huge amount of insulating air to keep you cosy and warm. We’ve also added a wind-resistant front panel so you can wear it as an outer layer for everything from cold morning walks to chilly evenings around the tent.
The classic pile fleece jacket has been around for over 40 years and is still going strong thanks to its winning combination of warmth, low weight and incredible durability. This durability makes the Sastrugi is a fantastic warm layer for situations where insulated jackets might not survive – scraping up cracks, chimneys and awkward top outs.
With its hood free design and high levels of breathability, the Sastrugi also makes a fantastic midlayer for extreme cold, whether flying down Alpine pistes or Cairngorm winds. To keep out the draughts, we’ve added a double layer collar and hem drawcord.
The Sastrugi is made from 100% recycled polyester throughout which also makes it completely recyclable at the end of its life!

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
