Asynja Jacket | Women's

Colour: Raven

Superlight, grab-and-go rain shell

Most lightweight waterproofs involve a couple of compromises – sure, they’re light and packable, but that typically means you get minimal features and limited rain protection. Klättermusen’s Asynja jacket is different. Though it’s designed for changeable spring and summer mountain days, it still offers storm-level protection, with impressive 20k/20k waterproofing and breathability ratings. It’s also soft and supple, thanks to the brand’s proprietary Cutan stretch fabric, which gives great freedom of movement. And it’s well equipped too, with a proper mountain-ready hood, two mesh-lined pockets, storm flaps over the pockets and main zip, and full adjustment at the hem and cuffs to seal out sudden gusts or dripping rain

  • The mountain town of Åre is kind of like a Swedish Chamonix. It’s home to the country’s biggest ski area, and the rugged terrain is criss-crossed by long-distance hiking paths, snowmobile trails and downhill biking tracks.

    It’s from this gnarly outdoor playground that cult Scandi gear brand, Klättermusen, emerged back in 1975. The company started out as a bunch of local climbers turning out DIY technical gear from a small workshop, and within ten years they’d already built up a rep for innovative and impeccably designed kit.

    These days outdoor manufacturers love to shout about their environmental credentials, but sustainability is nothing new for Klättermusen. It’s been part of their ethos since those early days of flares and prog rock, and they’ve always believed that good gear should be made to last. Their packs and clothing are designed to hold up reliably year after year in full-on Alpine and sub-Arctic conditions – and this is even more impressive when you consider that many of their fabrics incorporate recycled materials like discarded fishing nets and worn-out carpets.

    Pretty much no-one else is making outdoor gear of this quality, but somehow 'the Climbing Mouse' continues to scuttle slightly under the radar. Mention Klättermusen’s packs to any serious Swedish mountaineer and they either have one or want one, but outside Scandinavia it's still very much an ‘if you know, you know’ sort of a brand.

Recently had a chance to test this out in the rain for a couple of hours, including hail, and it was good.
