Packable, light and warm – this is what the Belay jacket is all about. This sports jacket, with Primaloft, combines two functional textiles to ensure high warmth and comfort. The lighter hood and shoulders use a material with increased protection against wet snow or light rain. The precise anatomical cut, minimal weight, pleasant softness and the packability makes Belay suitable for all-year-around use in mountain conditions. When packed into the inner pocket, it turns into a tiny piece of warmth and protection to take with you on every mountain trip.
- New, light, elastic hood made from durable Pertex Endurance with a pleasant inner microfleece lining.
- Shoulder parts with light Pertex Endurance for greater durability.
- A special combination of two different high insulation materials to provide necessary warmth and low density (133g/m2 on the body and a basic weight of 60g/m2 for the sleeves and sides).
- Two roomy zip-up breast pockets located above the line of a backpack hip strap.
- Anatomically designed sleeves with elastic cuffs.
- A drawstring on the shaped bottom edge that can be adjusted with one hand.
- An inner pocket which the whole jacket packs into for carrying.

- Tested by mountain guide (UIAGM) Zdeňek Hák on the SATISFACTION -GASHERBRUM I expedition. Háček says “On Gash I took with me things from Direct that I know and use, and I knew they wouldn't disappoint in any situation... I had Belay on me almost all the time, down below as my main insulation layer and on the upper stretches of the rock face as an extra layer under my down jacket. I've had it a long time, a really super insulator, sits perfectly, a good cut, works just as it's supposed to."
