The New Ultralight Mont Highplains Jackets

February 12, 2020

The New Ultralight Mont Highplains Jackets

With fingers crossed for more wet weather in Canberra, we introduce the New Mont Ultralight Highplains Jacket. An ultralight long length shell jacket made with new ultralight 3-layer fabric technology; more waterproof, more durable and more breathable than previously used ultralight waterproof fabrics.

The Highplains Jacket is available in Men's and Women's and two colours in each. Weighing in at only 340g (Men's Medium) and 310g (Women's 12) the Highplains jackets are ideal for travel and ultralight bushwalking.

By combining an ultralight 3-layer waterproof fabric with Mont's beloved thigh-length fit, the Highplains Jacket provides comprehensive protection at a fraction of the weight of a traditional 3/4 jacket.

Hydronaute Ultra provides and maintains consistent breathable, waterproof, windproof protection across a wide range of conditions.

Hydronaute Ultra uses an innovative ultralight microporous laminated PU (Polyurethane) membrane. Breathable through interconnected micropores far smaller in size and greater in number than the micropores in traditional microporous PU coatings, Hydronaute Ultra moves both moisture vapour and condensed moisture efficiently in both high and low level humidity; unlike traditional porous PU membranes that typically struggle expelling condensed moisture.

Hydronaute Ultra is more breathable across a wider range of conditions while maintaining a totally waterproof, windproof exterior.

Because backcountry ski boots are made to be much lighter than downhill ski boots without compromising performance or durability, backcountry ski boots use far more advanced materials including carbon fibre, Grillamid & Pebax. Subsequently, these boots require specialised tools, and extra skill and understanding to fit and modify them successfully.
