Test Results

After more than 100 days out in the mountains, at all conditions, -25 until 15 degree, wind, snow storm, rain, sun, powder up to your hips, I can say the Seili 4000 Jacket is excellent. Even at the most affected parts there are almost no signs of use - nothing, which would interfere with the style or function.

Everybody who is searching for a new Jacket in the upcomming season should ad Penguin Clothing to the list and check out the new models.

Quality, Comfort, Features, Durability and Price are very well combined in this high performance Jacket.



The Penguin Seili 4000 line is engineered to get best protection and amazing comfort in the alpine backcountry. Both the jacket and the bib/pant were built from our standard product range using only the best and strongest materials in order to withstand the elements during expeditions to the highest mountains in Switzerland. The flexibility and abrasion resistance of Schöller® fabrics are most suitable for the range of activities we equip our rider Martin "Seili" Seiler with.

Durable, breathable, waterproof and comfortable, this line is your best companion in all conditions.

Penguin Washing and Care:

Shell products are made with membrane. The garment can be washed at 40 degrees without spinning, with a mild detergent and no softening or rinsing agents. Do not use bleach. We recommend to use a washing product free of surfactants and detergents, fabric softeners, enzymes and perfumes. They man damage the fabric’s water-resistant quality and the colour. Special washing products should be available at your favourite outdoor shop. Ask for „washing products for garments with a membrane“. Use water repellent spray on the outside of the product after washing for optimal water-resistance. Dry the garment on a low setting in the dryer, or iron it at a low temperature. Warmth helps to reactivate the DWR (durable water resistance) treatment on the surface of your product.
Note: Water repellency DWR
Our membrane products have a water repellent surface (DWR Durable Water Repellent treatment) when they are new. DWR is a polymer and prevents the fabric from attracting moisture and dirt. When you use your product, this water repellency wears off, particularly at the seat, knees, shoulders and elbows, where the garments are exposed most. For best water repellence, we recommend to re-impregnated after each wash, or when you see parts of the products surface is getting wet.
