My name's Margaret. I'm a certified guide and I work with Outdoor Research as a member of the IFMGA guide test team. I'm going to show you some of my go-to softshell pieces – the Ferrosi collection. The Ferrosi collection offers a hoody, a jacket, pants and shorts. Women can wear a capri and men also have the option of hiking or climbing in a three-quarter-length pant. The Ferrosi collection is made of a single leave softshell. It's designed for high-exertion sports like alpine climbing, rock climbing, back country skiing and hiking. It offers great protection from the wind and a really high level of breathability. Spandex gives you great stretch for climbing and ease of movement. Ripstop Nylon gives the material a lot of abrasion resistance and in addition the hoody also has Cordura on the shoulders and on the arms. This piece goes with me into the mountains four seasons of the year. I wear it skinning uphill on a cold February morning and I wear it on a baking hot glacier in the dead of August.
