history

The Welcombe Technical was originally developed for climbers in collaboration with Berghaus in 2008. It’s current iteration is named after Welcombe Mouth, a beach near Hartland and an area known for it’s dramatic landscape. Griffin HQ, Loveland Farm on the north devon coast often plays host to professional climbers from around the world for it’s easy access to bouldering at the beach and stunning cliffs.

radical updates

Designed for big wall climbing, the Technical is shorter on the front and longer on the back. This is a garment that has been in our collection for a couple of seasons and now sees its most radical update. Waterproof storm flaps sit over the top of the map pocket to keep the chest clean and protect hidden hand warming pockets plus there’s also a hidden zip security pocket on the inside. The welded PU coating over the shoulders was inspired by a design created for Moncler and provides a protective layer for wear and tear from backpacks.

features

Other new features include an articulated sleeve with a specially engineered gusset to allow movement whilst keeping a slim silhouette on the arm. The wider neck collar with adjustable cords unzips around the top to reveal a peaked hood designed to keep the water out of your eyes whilst climbing or cycling. For ultimate comfort in wet weather the Welcombe Technical also boasts a velcro adjusting cuff and a double way waterproof Swiss Riri zip. The internal breathable membrane is made from the only recyclable polyester available in the market.
