For demanding high intensity fast paced mountain activities that require maximum breathability, the Fleet Jacket from Montane works with your body’s thermoregulation to keep you cool.
Built with an athletic fit to reduce unnecessary bulk and reduce wind resistance and drag the jacket is designed to provide weather protection when moving fast in the mountains. A front YKK Aquaguard zipper allows for smooth operation. An advantage of YKK Aquaguard zips is that in the unlikely event of a tooth breaking, the YKK zipper can zip past the breakage, ensuring the jacket is still functional
The men’s Fleet jacket is constructed from 40D GoreTex Active and C-Knit. The most breathable fabric out of Gore’s range, Active has a Resistance to Evaporative Heat Transmission (RET) of T<3 m², reducing the acceleration of sweat even during high activities; making it ideal for fast paced high aerobic activities such as fell running. The Gore fabric is backed by C-Knit which allows allows the garment to slide of internal layers, this minimizes friction that can deteriorate the inner lining of jackets. In addition the fabric actively reduces the impact of acidic sweat erioding the waterproof lining.
The Fleet jacket has a range of mountain specific features that tailor towards fast paced activities on the trail. The hood features a stiffened peak to shed rainwater and 3 points of adjustment to cinch it down in high winds, alternatively i can be rolled away to avoid snagging on branches whilst running. Arms are articulated to allow for freedom of movement and both the hem and cuffs are adjustable for a tailored fit. Inner hand pockets are mesh lined to allow for heat to be dumped and are map sized for those orienteers.
The Fleet jacket from Montane provides exceptional breathability and water protection for high intensity activities. The athletic fit is geared more towards fast hikers and trail runners where a streamlined cut is beneficial and the moisture management properties of the Gore Active membrane are a distinct advantage.
