| Inside Martini Sportswear

Meet STEP FORWARD, the lightweight mid-layer outdoor jacket by Martini Sportswear – the perfect companion for guys who love ski touring and ski mountaineering!

Meet our men’s functional jacket

Strong and masculine. Lightweight and flexible. These are the main attributes of our weather-proof mid-layer for sporty men who love a challenge. The robust fabric prevents heat loss, keeping the body in a balanced temperature. The windproof facings on the front make the jacket a great choice for windy and changeable weather while offering maximum freedom of movement.

Do you love listening to music during your outdoor adventures? Then we’ve got good news for you! STEP FORWARD has a chest pocket with an extra headphone outlet.

The Speed & Light collection

The STEP FORWARD mid-layer jacket is part of our Speed & Light collection designed for those who like to push their limits. The collection features high-quality materials that are super lightweight and durable. Perfect preconditions for top speeds and performances – even in extreme conditions!

Who is the speed collection suitable for? That’s easy: for high-performance athletes and contestants just like for outdoor enthusiasts looking for only moderate heat insulation. What’s more, the products were literally made for "peak" performances!

Just like the pros: The Austrian National Ski Mountaineering Team also uses products from the Speed & Light collection. Find out more about the cooperation between Martini Sportswear and the ÖSV, or check out our interview with sprint champion Daniel Zugg!
