Measurements refer to body size not garment dimensions. Wearing ease alters depending on style and fabric.
Chest: Take measurement around the fullest part of the chest, just under the arms and across the shoulder blades.
Sleeve: With elbow bent, measure from centre back of neck (at C7 vertebra) to elbow and down to prominent outside wrist bone.
Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waist (natural waistline).
Inseam: Measure a pair of well fitting pants from crotch to bottom of leg.
Tried and tested. The Austral is a traditional, all-purpose 3/4 length bushwalking rain jacket that is equally practical as an around town or travel jacket.
Featuring a three piece storm hood with multi point adjustments, a triple storm flap system to protect the front zip from down pours and a waist draw-cord adjustment that is neatly concealed away in the lower front pockets reducing potential snag points.
Tested in the worst imaginable conditions, the mid-weight Hydronaute 3 layer fabric offers outstanding breathability and waterproofness while being durable enough to withstand the long-term use of heavy backpacks. Hydronaute fabric also has high pin-hole resistance making it an ideal choice for bushwalking.
High Performance Fabric Technology. Hydronaute's high performance waterproof, highly breathable and windproof technology guarantees protection in all conditions. The combination of new-age face fabrics with innovative laminate technology means superior weather protection and exceptional comfort.
Face Fabric Selection: The face fabric is a crucial factor in the performance of Mont Hydronaute garments. It provides the durability, breathability and feel of Hydronaute. Our access to the most advanced face fabrics means that Mont outerwear is technically superior to previously used fabric technologies. In particular, the face fabric in our bushwalking range has increased abrasion resistance, tear strength and pinhole resistance.
The Austral Jacket appears to be well made and the sale price was great value for money. I have yet to use it due to the lockdown. I thought I was buying a jacket that matched the excellent pockets in my Mont Hydronaught Pro Jacket that is now worn out. The pockets in this jacket are more limited and less than I wanted/expected. As a result of this experience I will continue buying in the shop rather than on-line as there is no substitute for checking out such garments.
