A softshell jacket that combines superb windproofing and breathability.Montane's Alpine Equaliser is a lightweight softshell jacket that will comfortably protect you from the elements, with all the features you want for alpine activities.
It's outer shell is constructed from a lightweight, stretch Wind Barrier Dynamic nylon fabric, with an added Durable Water Repellent coating, which blocks out the wind and causes any water to bead an roll off.
Inside there's a THERMO Plexus lining which has a textured brushed grid microfleece inner, effectively trapping your warm air whilst wicking away any moisture through the fast drying polyester fibres.
Articulated arms prevent lift when reaching up, keeping you well covered if climbing, while the fully adjustable hood, hem and cuffs let you find a tight and secure fit when the weather gets really bad.
