Description

Washing can be done in a machine according to the manufacturers care guidelines (on the internal label). The big benefit of original Paclite was that it was a lightweight but relatively robust membrane material that allowed manufacturers to make shell jackets that took a fair amount of abuse, were somewhat breathable, but were as light and packable as possible – a complex combination to pull off. Incredibly packable and lightweight, GORE-TEX PACLITE® provides durable waterproof and windproof protection while keeping weight to a minimum. If you are looking for a new lightweight and packable waterproof jacket that offers you the perfect balance of weather protection, breathability and small pack size then the new Montane Pac Plus XT Jacket will fit the bill. This three layer waterproof jacket should be cleaned regularly with Nikwax Tech Wash; I wash my jacket about once a month, or more often if it gets really filthy.

layer laminate construction, the fabric can provide durability and next-to-skin comfort without the need for a separate lining.

This is very robust for climbing in all seasons, and offers a protective feel in windy conditions thanks to its extra stiffness. Where product tags have been removed, even if they have been re-attached, Mountain Kit will not be able to refund the product.

Endurance expeditions and athletes are critical in the development of our garment designs ensuring Montane clothing is fit for purpose. For running, summer hiking, or bean-counting backpacking you could go considerably lighter, but cutting weight does tend to mean compromising on durability, fit or features. Our rugged, full-featured hardshell jacket rises to any challenge in the mountains – whether climbing hard vertical ice pitches or descending.

Perhaps in part to help compensate for not using a more breathable Gore fabric, the Pac Plus XT jacket is fitted with pit zips. Making use of Gore's new PFC-free technology, this is an interesting lightweight mountain shell, says Dan Bailey - and one that treads that bit lighter on the planet, too. Though the Pac Plus XT is no spartan ultralight, only the most committed weight watchers would resent carrying it just in case. By the definition of this standard, an RET of 0-6 is 'extremely breathable' (comfortable worn at a higher activity rate); 6-13 is 'very breathable' (comfy at a moderate activity rate); 13-20 is 'satisfactory' or 'breathable' (uncomfortable at a high activity rate); and anything over 20 is going to boil you in the bag (I paraphrase). The Featherlite Smock was probably the most functional and innovative piece of windproof garment design since Fridtjof Nansen, whilst planning the first crossing of Greenland over 100 years ago, realised that the windproof properties of a garment were the secret to moving quickly and comfortably in the mountains.The material: GoreTex Paclite plus fabric with a 40 denier nylon face which is completely recycled with sustainability firmly in mind. In a nod to its potential use in winter it's a roomy jacket, and in my standard size Large there's space to fit it over several warm layers without feeling restricted. The Gore Tex Paclite Plus fabric is also designed to be very breathable so that sweat vapour can easily escape. But if it hadn’t been for the high functionality of the jacket, Id of been much wetter underneath from sweating, but that wasn’t the case because the features did a great job of allowing me to ventilate and dump the heat. The new Montane Pac Plus XT is a cracking example of a light and packable jacket that doesn’t skimp on these useful extras, whilst still tipping the scales at an impressive 375g (in a men’s size medium).
