The Elevation’s role is clear: it’s a protective jacket for extremely harsh weather, engineered for modern alpine-style mountaineering.
The M of Millet is formed by tone-on-tone colors – a subtle design touch to underscore the deliberate minimalism of this pragmatic, efficient jacket.
The membrane aims for excellence: the new Gore-Tex C-Knit technology has high resistance to abrasion. “This three-layer fabric is even more breathable and soft than Gore-Tex Pro,” points out Alex, product manager.
“As a result, we’ve built an even lighter active jacket. There are no vents, because this laminate with Gore-Tex C-Knit technology does their job on its own. We’ve really pared down this design to drive weight savings.” A single pocket.
This is a very crisp piece of kit: essentials plus nothing. The Elevation sports a very fashionable look, focused on lightness and stripped of superfluous frills.

Millet gives apparel and equipment to mountaineers since 1950.
The name Millet became famous in the 1930s when the first shopping bags with shoulder straps appeared. Adapted a few years later into a backpack, the idea quickly catapulted the French brand to the top. The development of technical products for use in the mountain environment gave the brand a strong image, strengthened by the input and backing of the generation’s best mountaineers.
Alpinism, climbing, hiking, trekking, ski, fast triking are covered by the Millet range composed by jackets, pants, fleeces, softshells, technical underwear, beanies, gloves, backpacks, ropes, sleeping bags, climbing shoes and shoes.
Millet is now clearly a reference in the field of Mountain clothing, both for historical reasons and the quality of current products.
