Montane Prism Women's Outdoor Jacket - AW17
Montane Prism Women's Outdoor Jacket The most versatile piece of insulation in the Montane range, the Prism is an essential piece of mountain clothing, suitable for every kind of outdoor activity.
Using 40g PrimaLoft insulation throughout ensures that the Prism is warm, yet lightweight enough to be worn on the move in cool conditions. Used and abused by Mountain Rescue teams across the UK, the Prism can be worn as a mid-layer within any shell system or alone as an outer jacket in drier weather. PERTEX Microlight Mini Rip-stop outer fabric is windproof, fast-drying and water-repellent; so you stay protected on drizzly days with harsh winds. PrimaLoft SIVER ECO surrounds the pockets and the body, making the garment warm, packable and exceptionally fast-drying. Sometimes it's hard to stay warm without developing that distracting clammy feeling so, as a solution, Montane implement a PEAQ synthetic lining to sit softly against the skin. This lining is highly breathable and fast-drying, so you stay dry and comfortable even when the tempo steps up. Articulated arms reduce hem lift, meaning you're covered during high-reach movement, and improve mobility; so you can power on up those inclines with ease, because your clothing choice should never inhibit your natural movement. The fully adjustable hood, which is compatible with headgear and has a wired peak for easy altering, serves as extra protection against the elements. An internal elastic loop and hook on the rear hood compression drawcord allows the hood to be rolled down and stowed away whilst not in use in windy conditions. Two hand-warmer pockets are positioned clear of a backpack or climbing harness belt; supplying close, convenient storage for small valuables. A full zip exists for adjustable airflow and coverage; zip down to quickly relieve intolerable heat buildup and zip up to seal in the warmth on a bitter day. A fine microfleece inner collar supplies an extra layer of cosy, next-to-skin comfort. Low bulk stretch-bound cuffs can be pulled up to the forearms to aid in cooling, and an adjustable bottom hem prevents spindrift entry and heat loss. The Prism is packable into its own right hand pocket, making it easy to whip off and stow safely if the awkward weather lifts off, plus this feature also means it can be used as a small sleeping pillow. Reflective details complete the jacket, increasing your visibility upon the mountain and keeping you safe on dimly lit adventures.
