Salewa has a long-standing, deep-rooted alpine heritage. Mountaineering, climbing and technical mountain sports form the very foundations of its company DNA. This is clearly reflected in the SALEWA brand slogan: PURE MOUNTAIN. 

Like mountaineers reaching a summit and then considering their next objective, to create its SS25 collection Salewa asked a simple question: “What’s next?”. And the simple answer is: NXT.


With NXT, Salewa has created a collection that sits within its mountaineering line, but extends to cover other activities, such as climbing and speed hiking. The resulting products are a powerhouse of technical innovation that are both highly desirable to progressive users and accessible to a wide range of new consumers. They are versatile, multidisciplinary, multifaceted, and ready to interpret the mountains in new ways. Yet perform comfortably in varied technical terrain and different situations, from scrambling or climbing at moderate grades to technical routes at high altitudes.


NXT is a story with a fast-forward approach. Pronounced like the word “next”, the NXT collection refers to the ‘next objective’ and is therefore new by definition. This is a story that looks both back to Salewa’s past, and forwards to the future. While drawing inspiration from the tastes, passions, and requirements of modern and progressive mountain-inspired enthusiasts.

The mountains have always been Salewa’s playground. Shaped by time, nature, and the elements, they are constantly evolving – and Salewa is evolving with them. With its NXT collection, Salewa has engineered products to meet the demands of ‘fast mountaineering’: moving quickly with less weight in the mountains through changing terrain. As such, Salewa sees NXT as a combination of the alpine disciplines of mountaineering, climbing and speed hiking, with each of these requiring a different skill set:

  • The high endurance levels of a trail runner and speed hiker to be able to cover long distances and vertical metres during the approach and the intended tour.
  • The precision, agility, and control of a climber to be able to move quickly and securely in rocky terrain.
  • The mental strength of an alpinist to have the confidence to cope with exposed situations and difficult conditions.

In the mountains, the equipment you take with you needs to be versatile enough to cope with a range of seemingly contrasting demands: it needs to be lightweight yet robust, precise yet comfortable, minimalist yet multi-functional. Moreover, Salewa has worked hard to reduce its environmental impact. With the NXT collection, Salewa is seeking to meet these requirements.

The collection has a modern aesthetic that builds on rock grey tones, transition via communication languages that merge to create an analogue and digital hybrid, a blend of heritage and futurism, and a sustainable, mono-material approach to fabric selection that is durable, lightweight, and circular.



LIGHTNESS AND DURABILITY. PRECISION AND COMFORT. MINIMALISM AND VERSATILITY. In NXT, opposites attract to forge a new concept of fast mountaineering, which looks to the future, yet carries salewa’s accumulated expertise within it: PURE MOUNTAIN.

The highlight products of the Salewa Spring/Summer 2025 collection are:



Ultralight, waterproof and extremely breathable – the minimalist NXT Powertex 3L Jacket is engineered with a 3-layer laminate, fully seam-sealed construction made of 100% recycled polyamide with a PFAS-free DWR (durable water repellent) finish that delivers a water column of 20,000 mm and a Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) of 30,000 g/m²/24h. The durable elasticated cuffs, dual-adjust helmet hood, and drawcord hem further help to seal out bad weather.

Designed for maximum packability and weighing just 230 grams (size 50), this alpine shell combines well with the NXT 3L Powertex Pant.
