The Parete Vest is the technical and multifunctional sleeveless jacket that is ideal for any spring and summer outdoor situation.
Parete Vest is a very light, highly breathable and easily compressible gilet.
Designed for the warm months, its technical nature allows it to be used even in winter, during all those aerobic activities in which we produce a lot of heat.
Made of K-Shell technical fabric, it is wind resistant, water repellent and slightly elasticated.

Karpos & Manifattura Valcismon: an Italian story
Karpos is an Italian technical clothing brand born 10 years ago but linked to a much older history, almost 70 years old: that of Manifattura Valcismon , a company founded in 1946 by Giordano Cremonese in Fonzaso , in the province of Belluno .
Born in the cross-country ski textile sector, in 1972 it created the Sportful brand.
It then opens up to competition cycling by acquiring the Castelli Cycling brand, achieving great success. In fact, it becomes the official supplier brand of the Giro d'Italia .
In 2007 he opens up to outdoor technical clothing with Karpos .
The Karpos logo wants to represent both the climber man and all those animals capable of overcoming gravity without wings. This is the reason for this "superhuman hand" , a fusion between the phalanges of a man and a gecko.
Today Manifattura Valcismon is in the hands of the 4 Cremonese sons who carry on this Italian success.
