Highly versatile, the Tingri vest is perfect for when the weather starts to turn colder, whether you’re heading for the hills or just popping out to the pub.
Sherpa Adventure Gear says:
A town in southern Tibet. It is often used as a base by mountain climbers preparing to ascend Everest and Cho Oyu. Also used to be an important trading post where Sherpas from Nepal traded for Tibetan wool, livestock and salt.
Made of high-pile heathered fleeece, with a DWR (durable water-repellent) and wax finish on the places that see the most exposure, like back and shoulders, the Tingri Vest is a versatile layer that's excellent to have on hand in places like Tingri, where climbers set up base camp to train for peaks like Cho Oyu and Everest.
Designed to keep the cold at bay while not overheating, the Sherpa Tingri Vest is both lightweight and durable. It's made from high-pile 100% polyester fleece which makes it ideal as a mid or top layer and allows you unrestricted movement whether you’re walking the mountain trails or exploring the high street on a chilly morning.
The shoulders, back and pocket flaps, meanwhile, provide added protection with water-repellent fabric overlays in a mix of 65% polyester and 35% cotton. Feature-wise there's one button chest pocket and two zippered hand pockets for keeping gear safe and your hands warm.
