Details:

CONSTRUCTION

  • Constructed from eVent® Hurricane 3 Layer fabric that is breathable and waterproof
  • Colour matched 13mm micro-taped seams to increase breathable surface area
  • 12 – 13 stitch count on all seams versus a typical industry average of 8, creating a tight, clean and strong seam
  • 3mm seam allowance on all seams, reducing weight and bulk under the micro-tape and creating a smooth, strong seam


PATTERNING AND DESIGN

  • Tailored with mountain walking in mind; longer in the body and able to accommodate winter layering
  • Technical tailoring to prevent arm lift raising the lower hem whilst reaching high
  • Articulated arms with engineered tailoring to prevent seams constricting over elbows and biceps


TECHNICAL HOOD

  • Fully adjustable climbing helmet compatible mountain hood with three points of adjustment
  • Hood visor stiffened with a wire on the lip for adjustability
  • Internal elastic loop combined with hook on rear hood compression drawcord allows hood to be rolled down and stowed away whilst not in use in windy conditions
  • Bonded and stitched hood channels for extra strength
  • Single hand adjustable elasticated face aperture with ‘floating’ cordlocks and internal cord exit for simplicity and improved functionality

 
POCKET CONFIGURATION

  • Two deep map-sized hand-warmer A-line pockets with YKK matte AquaGuard® zips positioned well clear of backpack or climbing harness belt 
  • A-line pockets feature brushed fine microfleece on the inside to provide warmth
  • External pockets feature shaped zip garages to prevent further weather entry
  • YKK zips are both stitched and bonded into the seams
  • Internal left hand side bonded mesh pocket with hook and loop closure


CENTRE FRONT ZIP

  • Full length YKK matte AquaGuard® front zip that is highly water resistant and two way to allow easy access to climbing or rucksack harness and / or trousers
  • Internal storm flap with rain drain edge behind centre front zip together with low profile, durable press stud to secure hem and prevent further weather entry


COLLAR AND CUFFS

  • Bonded brushed fine microfleece on inner collar facings next to mouth, chin and rear neck
  • Roll over beardguard prevents YKK zip from contacting the chin or mouth
  • Shaped cuffs with adjustable hook and loop tabs for ease of use with gloves or mitts
  • Rear external MONTANE® hang loop

 
WAIST AND HEM

  • Bonded internal waist channel to adjust fabric in body for a closer fit and lower adjustable hem toprevent spindrift entry and heat loss
  • MONTANE® ‘penny cordlocks’ on lower hem sides to create a low profile for comfort under climbing orrucksack harness
