Montane, the latest in a long line of new stock to be received, has now arrived and is live on our website. After having a look through some of the products in the delivery, I thought I’d give you the low-down on some of the exciting brand new stock in the winter 2014 range.
The first new product to mention is the Axion Neo Alpha Jacket. Made with Polartec Alpha insulation and a NeoShell membrane, this technical mountain jacket stands out due to it’s breathable properties – it has to be one of the most breathable insulated waterproof jackets we’ve ever seen! It is purposely designed for use during hard exercise in cold temperatures, where it wicks moisture away from the skin quickly yet provides strong protection from the elements.
The SkiMo pants have all the necessary qualities to make them ideal for skiing activity. Notwithstanding the excellent water resistance that the fabric possesses, the real highlight is the level of mobility that they manage to retain. The SkiMo has been cut with leg articulation in mind, allowing for full ranges of movement without restriction.
Weighing in at only 650g, the Chonos Ultra Down Jacket immediately caught my eye. The Chonos is filled with 250g of high loft 800+ Goose down which is unbelievably effective at keeping heat in, but the jacket is also very durable considering it’s weight. The Goose down is thus protected from rips or possible damage, and is able to retain loft in harsh weather conditions.
For information on down insulation please see our guide.
