That said, I haven’t yet put it to the ‘babred wire’ tested, as I did with my NFTO jacket (a heavier waterproof shell donated to me by one of my sponors) and which now has a small tear in the right sleeve. It should come as little surprise, but the Montane Pac Plus XT Waterproof Jacket certainly lives up to its name; it packs. It's worth remembering that different labs may achieve different figures, not all companies use the same test criteria, and some fabric manufacturers don't headline their numbers in consumer material in the first place.

A shell that rides up when you lift your arms is no use for scrambling or climbing, but thanks to some excellent tailoring in the sleeves and underarms I get very little of the dreaded hem lift with the Pac Plus XT. Additionally, the mid-height collar acts a strom shield to protect your neck from the scouring effects of cold winds, and keep heat inside the jacket.It's also worth noting the high collar, which can completely cover the neck and chin, helping you feel warm and protected on a cold windy day even if the hood is down. It's easy to build up a sweat in the Montane Pac Plus XT Waterproof Jacket, but to be fair it is in any shell if you're pushing on uphill, and it certainly keeps the windchill at bay, which is a major plus. The women’s Montane Pac Plus XT is one of the lightest waterproof jackets that I have tried, and I had some doubts as to whether it could be classed as an all-season waterproof; but having had it on extended test all through the winter season, I’m happy to report that it is more than substantial and waterproof enough for the job. At the opposite extreme, committed winter mountaineers would be better off with something more durable and protective, but they'd pay a weight (and financial) cost for it.

I've had both jacket and trousers on review for several months, taking me from midwinter, through what passed for the highland spring, and into summer. It’s GORE-TEX fabric has been especially engineered to pack away small in your backpack, when the weather suddenly changes.Made from 100% recycled Gore-Tex Paclite Plus, it’s tough and packable, whilst being fairly breathable. As the latest evolution of Paclite, Paclite Plus also has a special dry-touch backer rather than the raised print used to line most 2. You've just left the warmth of a friendly checkpoint and as you step out into the cold pouring rain, peer into the darkness and contemplate the terrain ahead, you realise you have 40 miles left until the finish line. Though it's described as helmet-compatible, I'd say the hood is too small to be a really successful match. I was impressed by the waterproofness of the jacket, my base layer was dry every where apart from a few mildly damp patches were I had obviously been sweating on the way up.

Montanes Waterproof Jackets for women combine quality design with comfort and a great range of colours. We may be able to arrange for a repair to be carried out at your cost, so please contact us for further details if you would like to use this service. In our many years of selling samples, we have found that 99% of them are exactly the same as the finished production version. The Montane Pac Plus XT Waterproof Jacket has all the basics you’d expect from a proper mountain shell: a zip chest pocket, two large hand pockets (big enough for a map) and a helmet-compatible hood. LD Mountain Centre does not accept responsibility for items being delayed through customs/ security checks or adverse weather conditions.Modern DWR treatments may be less environmentally damaging than those of yesteryear, but experience shows that they're not particularly long-lasting. This is very robust for climbing in all seasons, and offers a protective feel in windy conditions thanks to its extra stiffness.

While the Pac Plus XT jacket is about as skimpy as I'd want a shell to get for winter climbing or even summer scrambling, the trousers can definitely take more abuse, and could quite sensibly be used as your regular winter climbing shell legwear. Washing can be done in a machine according to the manufacturers care guidelines (on the internal label). The jacket boasts a fully adjustable hood and weather-resistant pockets, making it ideal for various mountain activities where packability is crucial. As a set that'll cover you for a variety of activities (not running perhaps) and a good range of seasonal weather (except the very worst of winter), the Pac Plus XT would be a great choice.Designed for mountain walking and long-distance trekking alike, the Pac Plus Jacket employs waterproof GORE-TEX Paclite Plus technology, upgraded with a more comfortable dry-touch backer. Comfort-wise, there’s lots to enjoy here, from the carefully designed front zip and stiffening and protective storm flap, through to the excellent hood that will protect you from whatever the elements throw at you.
