Altaika "Ice Breaker"



Grey 2-1 Logo Blue.jpg


Spectacular deep blue winter color, Altaika “Ice Breaker” represents the point where glaciers encounter the heavens and the surface of the planet harmonizes with outer space; like deep blue space, sorrows disappear, amazement envelopes everyone and routine disappears. Dramatic. Guaranteed to turn heads. 
Contains over 62 pieces of individual sheepskin and reflects the beauty of Claude Monet’s The Breakup of the Ice, one of the finest impressionist paintings. A fantastic head turner. 
Altaika “Ice Breaker” not only shines forth with the invincibility of winter’s surprises but brings out the exceptional from the commonplace and ho-hum. As Sir Edmund Hillary said in conquering Mount Everest, “People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.” 
Altaika “Ice Breaker” allows one to dream despite setbacks and difficult environments. Rough and tumble like the great Altai mountains, the vest brings us into the lives of others. 
Perfect for hiking and trekking in the Tien Shien, Himalayas, Rockies, or Alps. "Courage isn't having the strength to go on – it is going upwards when you don't have strength."

Altaika “Ice Breaker” bespeaks of personal big-heartedness and thoughtfulness because a person’s appearance, perceptions, and beliefs reflect one’s state of mind – the individual over the collective. The bluish tones are perfect for selfies.

Important Sizing Note

The dimensions indicated for each Altaika vest (“Chest”, “Hips” and “Back”) are the measurements (in inches) of the inside of the each vest at the chest (horizontal), hips (horizontal) and back (vertical). When measuring yourself, be very careful; use a tape measure.

It is recommended that you leave at least 2-4 inches from your actual body measurement to get a comfortable and loose fit, which depends on the amount of clothing underneath the vest.

Each vest will show measurements as follows:

  1. “Chest” measurement indicates the circumference of the inside of the vest at chest level.
  2. “Hips” measurement indicates the circumference of the inside of the vest at hip level.
  3. “Back” measurement is the vertical distance from the cross-seam at the bottom of the collar of the vest to the bottom of the vest.
