As of now a lot of the new Montane winter product is available. Some more is coming in the next few weeks. If you want to check it all out, please visit www.montane.co.uk.
Here are some of my favourites:
The Prism Jacket is a true classic and one of my all time favourites. In the Alps where I live it’s probably the jacket I wear the most all winter. It uses weather resistant PERTEX® QUANTUM, 100% recycled 40 g/m² PrimaLoft® Silver insulation and upgraded with a lightweight nylon lining. The Prism Jacket has a climbing helmet hood and good pocket options. Stuffing inside its hand pocket means it packs down small so it can be kept in your pack for a warm, windproof and weather resistant layer in almost any mountain weather. It weighs 390 g (size M) and the RRP is EUR 149.95.
When breathability is key! Lined with super packable high loft POLARTEC® Alpha Direct insulation throughout, the Hydrogen Extreme Jacket is designed for fast paced activities in cooler conditions. The supreme breathability of the PERTEX® QUANTUM AIR outer shell offers all day comfort, whilst the DWR finish will still shed light rain. It weighs 545 g (size M) and the RRP is EUR 224.95.
I love my Wolf Hoodie but sometimes I could do without the hood. So, it’s great to see that Montane now also offer a jacket version (without the hood). The Wolf Jacket has been designed for use during high-output start-stop activities when thermal regulation is required. The POLARTEC® Thermal Pro® Hi-Loft provides exceptional comfort and warmth when climbing, mountaineering and hiking in cold conditions. It weighs 400 g (size M) and the RRP is EUR 134.95.
The Primino range has bee a great success for Montane. Blending the remarkable properties of Merino wool and PrimaLoft®, this baselayer is built for active use in cold conditions. Premium Merino wool draws vapour sweat away from the body while high-quality PrimaLoft® yarns wick liquid sweat across the outer surface, allowing it to dry quickly. A lightweight PRIMINO® mesh is used in panels across the back and under the arms for enhanced breathability and wicking. With deep front zip for venting which is offset to avoid irritation around the mouth, an under-helmet hood and thumb loops, the PRIMINO® Hybrid Alpine Hoodie has a technical feature set designed for layering in high alpine settings. There is also a women’s version available. The men’s version weighs 197 g (size) and the RRP is EUR 94.95.
Montane has got an incredible range of super functional glove. The new Alpine 850 Down Mitt closes the gap when it comes to mitts for the extreme cold. Filled with 850+ Allied Feather & Down water resistant fluorocarbon-free HyperDry™ down it provides extreme warmth for high mountain and expedition use. The PERTEX® QUANTUM together with a reinforced palm and high wear areas provides the ideal balance between durability and low weight. It weighs 236 g (size M) and the RRP is EUR 99.95.
These are just some highlights. Please check out our gear list for more Montane product that is great for our race and any other cold weather adventure.
