Minimus Stretch Ultra Jacket ‘Most Flexible’ in Backpacker Gear Test
Our Minimus Stretch Ultra Jacket rose above 145 other products to be awarded the title of ‘Most Flexible’ in Backpacker Magazine’s Gear Guide this month.
The jacket was put through its paces by testers in a variety of scenarios in a variety of environments, from navigating boulders in Colorado’s Indian Peaks Wilderness, to scaling the cliffs of Australia’s Murramarang National Park. A particular hit with testers were the Minimus Stretch’s cuffs, which extend over the backs of the hands for extra drip protection, with one particularly long-armed tester remarking ‘No wrist-gapping here’.
‘Lightweight shells are fairly easy to find these days. But getting one
that moves as well as the Minimus does? that’s harder to come by.’
The Pertex two-way stretch fabric was applauded for allowing free range of movement whilst still being waterproof and robust enough to tackle everything that was thrown at it.
