There is no speed without acceleration, which is why Crazy Idea has rebranded their ever-popular Cervino products as the Acceleration collection. As the next iteration of the Cervino Ultra, the Crazy Idea Acceleration Pull is the pièce de résistance of Crazy's line of ski touring mid-layers, and for very good reason. Designed as a do-it-all middle layer or a do-it-fast outer layer, the Acceleration is made with comfortable, stretchy, and breathable Italian Vuelta fleece with a light DWR treatment to keep moisture going out and not in. The back panels are made with High-Performance 3D honeycombed fleece that is made to support airflow and moisture evacuation through the hexagonal cavities inside the fabric, keeping your engine cool when you're trucking in high gear. The soft lining on the inside is treated with Graphene which provides anti-static, anti-microbial, and heat-regulating properties, leaving no fiber untouched by the advanced techniques that set Crazy apart from the many other outdoor apparel manufacturers. It takes more than fancy fabrics to make a technical touring top, which is why the designers added an internal beacon pocket and large external skin dump pocket in conjunction with the two zippered chest pockets. Accelerate into winter with the crazy awesome Acceleration Pull from Crazy Idea.

  • Vuelta and HP3D fabrics with honeycomb chambers are exceptionally breathable.
  • Full front zipper for ventilation and taking the Pull on and off.
  • Graphene-infused fabrics are anti-static, anti-microbial, temperature regulating, and slightly more wear-resistant.
  • Elastic, flat hems and flat seams for comfort.
  • External skin dump and internal beacon pocket for easy accessibility.

Updates 2023/24: The jacket, while featuring the same materials, has a slight construction change. There is diagonally designed banded insulation across the back and front of the pull, and a bit on the arms following the design.

Questions & Reviews

Carlos M (used product a few times)
This is a preliminary review as I have only used this top for 3-4 days skiing at this point, but I am sold. This is the best ski touring-specific top I have owned. It is somewhere between a race top and a general touring jacket. It offers some wind protection and warmth, enough that if I'm doing quick laps I don't feel the need to layer over it. But more importantly, I can skin with it on and not overheat. It is significantly more breathable, and more wind resistant, than my Patagonia R1. It vents extremely well and is very comfortable to wear before and after skiing. No more cold skinning in a base layer or sweating out a shell/mid-layer.

The external skin pocket isn't really big enough for larger skins (it would be great for race skins), but I have found it to be perfect for stashing gloves, hats, buffs, and other miscellaneous items that I keep close to hand but don't necessarily want to wear the whole time.

Overall, the quality of construction, materials, and design are top-notch, and the comfort and function are excellent. And it looks great. At 5'11 and 145lbs, I wear a medium and it is snug and trim without being skintight. The cut is just right - it doesn't ride up under a hip belt, but it's not excessively long. The silicone grip on the hem is a great design feature. I'm very happy that I spent the money this piece.
