Brilliant jacket at a brilliant price. Cotswold Outdoors is still selling them for £290.

Fair notice: Blacks are selling the black version for £139.

A technical , versatile mountain shell made for protection without fuss.

is an uncompromising waterproof shell that's ideal for climbers,



mountaineers and mountain walkers. It's made using tough GORE-TEX®, with

unrestrictive protection layer for fast-paced mountain sport.

Its construction, materials and design all contribute to its effectiveness:

Durable Water Repellency (DWR) for effective water shedding

For those wondering
Won’t this drop in price with the gooutdoors summer discount code?
Crazy price for a thin jacket. Looked at them yesterday instore. Should be about £70 to start with . Fair enough for warm thick water proof ones but not these .

As much as we'd like it to be cheaper, it's actually a gore-tex winter mountaineering jacket so is quite a bit more expensive to manufacture than a waterproof jacket designed for kicking about town or for low level hill walking. This jacket is something you'd count on when tackling the most technical mixed winter climbing in the harshest Scottish winter conditions. You wouldn't want to be wearing a trespass or regatta jacket when you're hanging off a mountain in Torridon in February! A small diamond ring costs thousands of pounds but is appreciated as being far more expensive to manufacture than a tacky plastic ring found in a christmas cracker, which is a pretty fair comparison between this jacket and a cheapie trespass job.

I was on about decent makes also not dropping to trespass etc. I have a montane thick jacket, best I’ve had before but it’s far too hot for wearing now. I am after a thin as possible water proof one, was thinking about £70 as my warm jacket was £160. Not paying £150 + for thin water proof one.

No worries. This jacket is aimed at the more technical end of the outdoor spectrum and so consideration to it's purpose should be given when remarking on the deal rather than how over-qualified it may be for your needs.

I do own this jacket and I also own a Berghaus Stormcloud jacket which you could probably pick up for around £70 and should suit your needs perfectly.

Ok thanks, Berghaus are the worst fitting ones. Big baggy things. Prefer montane or north face for fitting, spray way also good fit.

I know what you mean. I have a North Face Stratos jacket which fits nicely, as does this Montane jacket. My Berghaus Stormcloud is a very generous fit for one as slim as myself. Saying that, I have a Berghaus down jacket (I think it's a Tephra Stretch?) which is the best fit of all. I suppose it was a break from the usual Berghaus fit (I've had a few of their jackets).
