The Climber magazine – “Super light, super packable and super warm, the Belay is the perfect companion”
“The Belay Jacket is a functional insulated jacket from Keela. Super light, super packable and super warm, the Belay is the perfect companion for missions into the hills at any time of the year. Using Primaloft which is not as susceptible to saturation with water, this jacket is ideal for keeping you warm in damp conditions. Perfect for everything from tramping to winter mountaineering, and its not so fat that you can’t fit it under a shell. Velcro cuffs and lycra binding on the waist hem keep the drafts out, and a soft wicking fabric keeps the neck lining and front pockets warm. The garment cut is basic but it is otherwise awesome value for money and a garment that will give you years of comfort.”
Nepal Himilayan Expedition – “An extremely durable, light and unbelievably warm jacket”
”The Belay Jacket is without doubt on of the best garments produced by Keela. It was perhaps the most versatile, useful and most worn item of Keela clothing worn on the month long expedition. It was worn everyday and it even sufficed as the main outer garment at over 5500m on a remote and chilling glacier. It also proved useful as a night time pillow. On the summit day it was used as part of the mid layer system along with the Summit Top and the Munro Jacket. In complete contrast we wore it travelling to Nepal because it looked smart and was very versatile as a travelling garment. By the end of the expedition the Belay Jacket was in need of a wash but was completely undamaged and showed no signs of the extensive use it received on the expedition. An extremely durable, light and unbelievably warm jacket; even keeping us very comfortable at 550m on a remote and cold Himalayan Glacier. Following a hand wash the Belay Jacket looks as good as new.”
