Pac-ing a Punch

The Montane Pac Plus Jacket was recently awarded their coveted BEST IN TEST rosette in a ‘Summer Waterproof’ group test. Despite its apparent modesty, this simple, lightweight waterproof jacket seriously punches above its weight. The Pac Lite takes Gore-Tex’s 2-layer Pac Lite Plus technology and couples it with a dry-touch, abrasion-resistant inner treatment. This updated interpretation on quite an old-school 2-layer construction creates a lightweight super breathable shell system. Couple it with a tough 30D outer and a suite of intuitively placed features and you are left with a well-considered,... Read More

OLD SCHOOL COOL

The utterly bombproof Extreme Smock featured as part of a ‘Pertex/Pile’ retrospective in The Great Outdoors Magazine recently. In the seasonal spirit of retrospection, we take a look at how this pivotal piece of technical outerwear came to prominence, why it still has its place in the modern outdoorsman’s wardrobe, and what the future holds in store for this simple yet effective technology: The combination of thick, heavy pile insulation under a breathable Pertex weather-resistant shell membrane first came about in the 80’s. They were warm, windproof, fast-wicking and quick-drying,... Read More

Chris Townsend tested three quintessential winter accessories in the December issue of ‘The Great Outdoors Magazine’, awarding two ‘Best Buy’ and one ‘Recommended’ Rosettes. And little wonder – the three products in question work immensely well together. Prism gloves provide lightweight, low-bulk warmth and work excellently in conjunction with Minimus Mitts for cold and wet days. Similarly, the Mountain Squall Cap is equally at home in the greater ranges as it is battling Scottish deluges or Lake District downpours. Between the three, you have almost all situations covered.
