VELES GILET

The Veles Gilet is a graphene-enhanced, soft-shell well suited for advanced technical pursuits owing to its light weight and versatile build. Designed to be compatible with a climbing harness, the Veles doubles up as a wind and water resistant, thermal regulating layer for hiking, trekking and packs down well for multi-day expeditions.

The key to understanding the Veles Gilet is its graphene-enhanced construction. The strongest natural element on the planet, graphene is incredibly durable yet remains light and malleable making it ideal for use in technical performance clothing.

With Veles, graphene helps create a tough soft shell able to withstand the scrapes and abrasions of rock climbing or scrambling across challenging terrain. However, strength isn’t its only benefit - graphene is also an excellent thermal conductor. It is able to effectively store heat generated by the body’s core and distribute this through the length and breadth of the Veles Gilet to best manage your body temperature in changeable climates. Graphene - a thermal regulating, abrasion resistant, light and elasticated super fabric.

Otherwise, the design of the Veles Gilet has been carefully considered for use with a climbing harness. Its ergonomic cut features pocket placement for accessibility when roped up and/or to avoid obstruction when using a backpack with hip belt. At just 410g, the jacket is light enough to be packed down into a day sack making it a versatile option for day hikes and multi day expeditions where carry weight is a key concern. YKK Vislon zips and embroidered insignia give the Veles Gilet all the familiar hallmarks of an iconic ThruDark garment - intended as a lighter weight descendent of the award winning Centurion Alpine Jacket.
