The Vaude Tacul Jacket is perfect for ambitioned Mountaineers who like to wear, sensfull and simple designed Equipment. The matter of sustainability is important for Vaude what I like a lot. We enjoy nature and so we should also protect it as far as we can.
The Shape of the jacket is great not to baggy and not to tight. The two small pockets have space for the Liftticket or some money. The position of the two main pockets is great, no hassle while carrying your backpack or a harness. You have enough space for a map your mobile phone, a small cam or what you need frequently on tour. The inside pocket is very good to carry your skins at routes where you have to change several times from hike- to ride-mode. So the glue stays warm and the skin sticks perfectly at your base.
The Vaude Tacul is super light and very comfortable, the hood is adjustable and the view even while riding your Split- or Snowboard is big and open.
Sure it is water-, wind- and snowproof as you expect from a mountain jacket.
The Vaude Tacul is the best Jacket I have had until now. I can clearly recommend it, also because the price/performance ratio is excellent.
Thanks Vaude for the sophisticated developments and the integration of great colours and top materials, please keep on with the production of such outstanding equipment.
Top at every kind of touring, here on a high alpine glacier route
Great shape also in challenging terrain using harness and rope
The Tacul - in the light of the headlamp past the seracs of the northern flank; high elevation climbing on the towers of the Teufelsgrates; snow sliding on a winter ascent of the legendary Supercouloirs: this stretchy 3-layer hooded jacket was developed for challenging routes and adverse conditions on the mountain in collaboration with experienced mountain guides. Thanks to a high-tech polyamide outer material, the Tacul jacket is not only robust, but with the eco-friendly Sympatex® membrane they’re absolutely waterproof and windproof as well. The highly breathable membrane and waterproof ventilation zips ensure a comfortable microclimate. The cut was designed with the needs of mountaineering in mind: the jacket doesn't slide out of your harness while you're stretching for your next hold and the adjustable hood is fully helmet-compatible.The large, higher set front pockets offer enough space for warm gloves and a map, and can be easily reached even when wearing a harness and pack. This high-tech and robust stretch hardshell jacket offers optimal freedom of movement thanks to its cut and materials and combines the highest standards of functionality and ecology. The Green Shape quality label stands for environmentally friendly production of the textile material according to the bluesign ® standard.
