Our Keller Sports Pro Sophie has tried out an outfit from our partner Salewa and summarised her impressions of it. The specific products tested were the Pedroc Dry functional pants and the Pedroc PTC Alpha hybrid jacket. Sophie wore both garments while mountain biking.
Sophie wore the Salewa Pedroc Dry functional pants in size 36 and they fit perfectly. The pants are comfortable to wear, as the material is very soft and flexible. The functional pants dry very quickly and the reinforced material around the buttocks and knees makes the garment particularly hardwearing. Sophie recommends these pants for mountain hikes, trail runs and mountain biking trips.
The Salewa Pedroc PTC Alpha hybrid jacket was tested in size 36 and Sophie found that it fit her very well. It has a sporty cut and provides the necessary freedom of movement. The jacket is made from Polartec Alpha material, which was first developed for the US task force. This fabric turns a heavy, wet wearing feel into a light, dry one. Thanks to this material, the jacket dries very quickly no matter how heavily you are sweating, and it also regulates your body temperature. Moreover, the material impresses with its high degree of flexibility and resilience. Sophie would recommend the jacket for mountain biking, mountain hiking and ski touring. It is especially useful in dry weather or worn as an insulating layer under a hard shell jacket. The jacket’s properties are most effective in temperatures between 6 and 12 degrees Celsius.
