If you’re passionate about snow sports whether it’s carving up the slopes on your snowboard or making your way across harsh mountain crags it makes sense that you’re going to need premium protective gear to keep you warm, dry and comfortable for the duration and one brand in particular that will more than do the job is outdoor and cold weather expert Montane.
Over the last few decades Montane has established an extensive range of cold weather products like walking pants, shorts, caps, gear bags, rucksacks, even t-shirts but one they do specifically well is their collection of Montane Jackets. Aside from winter sports Montane Jackets are available for a whole host of other sports like cycling and trail running which offer a greater freedom of movement.
Their aim of helping people reach unknown and the toughest to reach places in the world has inspired some incredible technologies and techniques like their DryActiv deep pile lining that provides incredible warmth while remaining lightweight so you don’t have to sacrifice movement and have extra weight to keep arctic temperatures at bay. Montane Jackets also use an ultra-light Pertex as a main fabric which not only acts as a Ripstop preventing any snags or scrapes becoming large tears and they are completely windproof and almost waterproof for ultimate climate protection. For the coldest weather Montane Anti-Freeze Jackets and Montane Extreme Jackets feature these materials and more, the Extreme Jackets have even been used in expeditions facing temperatures as low as -40 degrees centigrade. Most Montane Jackets also have hoods giving your head extra protection and features like waterproof pockets for fragile items like a phone and added cuff and forearm protection to help reduce the effects of falls and impacts.
You can’t face sub-zero temperatures without a complete set of protective gear which is why the range of Montane Pants are also perfectly suited to protecting you from harsh weather. Montane understand that movement is key, especially when you’re planning on climbing the side of a mountain so the Montane Terra Pants were developed as a durable and lightweight choice. Using a combination of Tactel and Cordura, the Terra Pants are moisture wicking as well as water resistant, but they’re so tough you can tow a car with them. For extreme cold, like the Extreme Jackets; the Montane Extreme Salopettes feature DryActiv and Pertex helping keep your lower body and legs protected.
Montane have even equipped a number of expeditions with their cold weather gear like most recently with The Coldest Journey Expedition by giving them specially designed jackets. The expedition involves a group of explorers crossing the Antarctic in the winter which has never been attempted before while collecting key scientific data for climate change. So you can see the Montane range is suited to snow sports, climbing and mountaineering, or even if you just need decent clothing if you live in a climate with harsh winters and you’ll find Montane Jackets for sale including more of their range at numerous online retailers.
