In stark contrast to some large mountain-wear brands, British brand Jöttnar’s capsule collection of ski-wear champions supreme quality with products that are truly tried and tested by professionals. The brainchild of two ex-marines, Jöttnar was dreamt up during a military exercise in the Arctic circle where founders Tommy Kelly and Steve Howarth craved better quality clothing to battle the Arctic temperatures.
Since then Jöttnar’s mountain apparel has been worn by the brands world-class Pro-Team of skiers, climbers and BASE jumpers to conquer some of nature’s most brutal giants from Greenland, South Africa’s Table Top mountain and Yosemite Half Dome, to Mont Blanc and the Grand Canyon, to name a few. Jöttnar is this winter season’s go-to brand for those seeking the very best kit out there.
Having quickly established themselves as the premium brand for mountainous conditions, Jöttnar anchors on clean lines, disciplined designs, shape, technology and craftmanship, producing a tightly focussed range in limited volumes, exclusively available on their website
Jöttnar’s high performing materials are what sets it apart from the competition; SKJOLDR breathable shell fabrics and Merino wool base layers combine to create a mountain-wear range like no other.

A richly featured 900 Fill Power hydrophobic goose down jacket wrapped inside a waterproof, breathable shell, the Ragnörak is designed for big mountain ski and snowboard descents.
For those who are heading further afield this season and seeking to create some serious lines, the Odin is a multi-discipline waterproof, breathable mountain shell built for the harshest of winter conditions.
