As we approach the winter months, with the usual helping of trepidation, our thoughts turn to winter clothing. For many, that fuels the search for the all-important winter jacket that will provide comfort and the required level of protection.
The British weather will throw at us all the usual delights of rain, wind, snow and ice. Just like a seasoned Scout, you need to be prepared, particularly if walking, hiking or climbing is your thing.
What’s on your list of priorities when choosing your winter jacket?
Comfort – tick!
Warmth – tick!
Waterproofing – tick!
Robust stitching – tick!
Clever technology that makes it all work together – tick!
Given all the boxes that need to be ticked, a favourite winter jacket with BCH Camping
is the Montane Alpine Resolve Jacket
Why choose the Montane Alpine Resolve Jacket?
The Alpine Resolve jacket from Montane is designed for winter mountaineering and alpine climbing, so it would obviously also tick all the boxes for anyone looking for full protection when winter walking and climbing.
Let’s take a look at the main features.
The Alpine Resolve is a technical GORE-TEX Pro jacket. GORE-TEX Pro provides the following benefits:
- Durably waterproof with a “Guaranteed to keep you dry” promise
- Highest level of breathability means less sweat and more warmth when resting
- Completely windproof
- Long-lasting protection, even in the most extreme conditions
- More stretch for greater freedom of movement
- Environmentally friendly. GORE-TEX Pro products have recycled and solution-dyed textiles that reduce water usage and CO2 emissions.
In the Montane Alpine Resolve, the main body of the jacket is made with 40 Denier GORE-TEX Pro, with a 100% recycled nylon face. There is also heavy duty 80 Denier GORE-TEX Pro reinforcing the shoulders, hips and elbows. This is particularly beneficial in avoiding abrasion from rubbing rucksack straps.
Pockets for every need
There are two map-sized pockets on the sides of the jacket offering plenty of room and the convenience of not having to retrieve a map from a rucksack. There is also a large chest pocket for any essentials. All these external pockets have a water-repellent YKK AQUAGUARD® VISLON® zip, providing enhanced water resistance to protect the contents. Finally, there is an internal mesh drop pocket for any other items that need to be kept within easy reach while walking.
The Montane Alpine Resolve jacket is available from BCH Camping
in Medium, Large and Extra Large.
|INSIDE LEG - REG
|INSIDE LEG - SHORT
|INSIDE LEG - LONG
All Montane products are designed with a fit that reflects the intended end use, and aids freedom of movement with optimum comfort. The Alpine Resolve is an Active Mountain fit which means it is close-fitting for fast-paced activities.
