NW Alpine Military Mountaineering Collection

NW Alpine crafts apparel for real-world use in the world's most rugged alpine environments. Since 2010, we've dedicated our efforts to designing and developing the best possible gear for the worst possible conditions. With input from our end users, we're proud to introduce our new military mountaineering collection. This system of five pieces features a shell jacket, salopette, baselayer salopette, insulated pants and an insulated jacket. Made in the USA at our factory in Salem, Oregon, all pieces are Berry Compliant.


Spectra® Jacket

Following our creation of the award-winning Eyebright Jacket climbing shell, we designed the waterproof MultiCam Spectra® Jacket with one job in mind: yours.

Crafted from ultralight Spectra® Composite Fabrics, featuring fibers that are fifteen times stronger than steel, this full-zip shell takes durability to a new level. Its small size, weighing in at approximately 8 ounces, packs down into a fist-size bundle, allowing you to carry more of what you need.

While many waterproof jackets kill breathability, the MultiCam Spectra® features a highly breathable, proprietary construction and ePTFE eVent membrane that tests at over 50,000 g/m2. In other words, with this jacket, overheating on hours-long training runs is a thing of the past. Each jacket is individually laser-cut, sewn and seam-taped by hand.


An evolution of our one-piece salopette bib for alpinists, our military version underwent several thoughtful design changes. Our new softshell fabric is both waterproof and breathable, with the durability and abrasion-resistance of Tweave Durastretch® fabric in a comfortable fleece-lined package. A through-the-crotch zipper with three pulls allows easy access to the facilities while wearing a harness. It's finished with zippered chest pockets, dual thigh pockets, Spectra® scuff guards and knee pad pockets.


Baselayer Salopette

Designed to work in tandem with our Salopette shell, this 270 gsm fleece baselayer features three pulls along the through-the-crotch zipper to make using the facilities a breeze. Paired together, the shell and this baselayer deliver a unique system for active endeavors where warmth, breathability and mobility count most.


Belay Jacket

Featuring 133 gram Primaloft insulation, this durable jacket provides the perfect balance of warmth, weight and packability. The shell fabric is a Nanosphere coated 1.55oz ripstop nylon with a light 20D nylon taffeta for the liner. Features include an adjustable, helmet compatible hood, adjustable hem, zippered hand warmer pockets, chest pocket and internal stretch pockets to store gloves and other accessories.



Alpha Pant

We chose Polartec® Alpha insulation for this pant because of it's superior breathability, a property that makes the piece wearable even when you're working hard. For mobility, we added Tweave Durastretch® panels along the sides of the legs and wrapping behind the knees. This pant includes Spectra® scuff guards, as well as waterproof and breathable Spectra® fabric in the seat. Three quarter zips up the side make on/off easy, even when wearing boots.
