Air Jacket scoops ‘Editor’s Choice’ award in Trek & Mountain
Respected magazine Trek & Mountain awards our Air Jacket ‘Editor’s Choice’ in a lightweight technical shells gear test.
Our brand new Air Jacket is fast proving itself. Launched to Montane’s collection in February this year, its remit is simple: versatility.
Weighing in at approximately 350g and 300g (men’s and women’s styles respectively), the Air Jacket is lightweight. It utilises new Pertex Shield AP fabric, which delivers breathability, durability and waterproofness with a bi-component membrane that pushes moisture out from the inside.
This cutting edge technical performance fabric combined with Montane’s signature innovative, progressive and functional design, ensures that the Air Jacket offers year round mountain weather protection whether you’re walking in steady drizzle in the Lake District or in a torrential downpour in the Scottish Cairngorms.
Trek & Mountain tested a wide range of lightweight technical shell jackets in its June issue. The Air Jacket was singled out for its articulated arms, women’s fit, helmet compatible hood and the hand pockets doubling up as vents – “something that is really useful when moving quickly in warmer weather”.
Final verdict: “All the right features and at a good pricepoint too”
