MONTANE Alpha Guide Jacket wins 2013 POLARTEC Apex Award

  • von

The Alpha Guide Jacket has yet to hit the shops but that hasn’t stopped it from winning a prestigious POLARTEC®Apex Award already.
Due to go on sale as part of MONTANE®’s Autumn / Winter 2013 range, the Alpha Guide Jacket has been designed to give effective insulation to the core body whilst leaving the arms free from restrictions. Utilising
POLARTEC®’s unique new Alpha®insulation as its fill, this hybrid jacket is not so much a piece of clothing, rather a piece of climbing equipment.

POLARTEC®Alpha® is the latest evolutionary step in synthetic insulation. It is a highly stable layer allowing  for the use of more open and breathable fabrics on the outer and inner layers of insulative garments. Its  open, woven construction combines warmth with hyper breathability, whilst at the same time being  extremely compressible. POLARTEC® Alpha®’s effective moisture vapour transportation characteristics  combined with quick drying times help to keep the wearer comfortable, dry and focused, recovering well even after a downpour.

Mt. Thermo X Stretch fabric  is used in the arms, shoulders and arms to complete the jacket. A plethora of technical features, such as a  stretch hood that can fit comfortably under a climbing helmet, thumb loops and a two way YKK zip to allow  easy access to climbing or rucksack harness, make this a truly formidable jacket. read full press releas
