Top quality 3 layer Goretex jacket. SIZES 14 AND 16 ONLY

The Mountain Equipment Womens Seraph Jacket is the perfect jacket for year round mountain use. The longer cut and articulated sleeves make this a jacket that is perfect for walking and scrambling whether in the UK or further afield.

The improved GORE-TEX Pro Shell Ascendor II fabric is bonded together rather than using traditional stitching, it has two large chest pockets and a great A4 Napoleon pocket that easily carries a map or a guide book. Essentially this is the same jacket as the mens Morpheus but with a female specific cut.

GORETEX EXPLAINED


There are 5 primary Gore Tex membranes. Pro Shell, Active Shell, Performance Shell, Paclite & Soft Shell. Each membrane can be bonded onto different face materials to produce slightly different finished fabrics but Gore tightly control the brands using Gore tex so 2 Proshell garments will never be very different.

* Pro Shell - Great breathability which is tough, light and durable.
* Active Shell - Breathability and Weight optimised at the expense of durability.
* Performance Shell - Waterproof and breathable but heavier fabrics and lower breathability rates.
* Paclite - Superlight and low bulk fabric.
* Soft Shell - Membrane fabric but not waterproof by construction.

Pro Shell.

Gore Pro Shell is for outdoor professionals and serious enthusiasts who need to face extreme weather and tough conditions. Pro Shell membrane is made into the most rugged, highly breathable and durably waterproof fabrics. Gore Pro Shell is 3 layer. The secret to 3 layer Pro Shell is that it uses a micro grid internal backer to the fabric which increases breathability, abrasion resistance (from the inside) and allows the fabric to slide easily over mid layers.

Active Shell.

Gore Active Shell is for those who value performance and light weight above all else. Gore took Proshell and made it as thin and light as possible and the result was slightly increased breathability and fantastically light weight. Like Pro Shell it is a 3 layer membrane. Active Shell will not be particularly durable, designed for people who carry it often but hardly wear it.

Performance Shell.

Gore Performance Shell is for everyday outdoor users who want a windproof & waterproof garment but who will not face extremes of weather and abrasion. Whether you're skiing, cycling, mountaineering or walking, you can change the sport but you never need to change your garment. Performance Shell is 2 or 3, depending on whether the garment maker wants a more supple fabric or more durability. 2 ply Performance shell is often used with a mesh lining rather than a 3rd bonded layer to achieve the same results.

Gore Tex Paclite

Gore Tex Paclite is perfect for hiking, cycling, running and any other sport when weight and space are critical. Paclite's greatest asset is it's minimum weight and pack volume. Face fabric made of high-performance polyester or nylon. Membrane covered by a protective layer made of an oleophobic (oil-hating) substance and carbon. Paclite is breathable but it's performance is nowhere near Active Shell, which is pretty quickly replacing it. However it is a lower cost fabric than Active Shell.

Soft Shell.

Gore Tex Soft Shell membrane (previously called Wind Stopper) is often combined with soft and stretchy fabrics in Softshell garments. Although the membrane is intrinsically waterproof it is never built into 100% waterproof garments. Gore Soft Shell is used as a wind blocking and light rain resistant layer in softshell jackets, it is breathable but nowhere the performance of the 3 layer membranes. It's natural home is heavyweight softshell for winter use.

I'll give you hot just for stating the sizes in a first line.
I'm fed up with all this deals when you check and find that only two abnormal sizes left...
