Using a combination of different layers is the best system for staying dry and keeping warm in winter, or comfortable in summer. Below is a simple guide to the different layers and garment types that can build a great layering system for a wide range of adventures.
Base layers and Next to Skin: This is your first layer and it should be a layer that wicks moisture away from the skin and drys quickly. Polartec Power Dry® garments are the perfect first layer, keeping you dry and comfortable in a wide range of conditions. We do not recommend merino as a base layer as it will absorb up to 30% of its weight in sweat, will become heavy and is very slow to dry.
Fleece & mid layers: A perfect second layer should be a warm, mid weight fleece garment or similar. Something with good stretch and moisture management is ideal.
Insulation layers: In colder conditions and for snow and alpine sports, a warm insulation layer is a great idea. Depending on conditions and how much you feel the cold, consider another fleece layer or a synthetic or down insulated garment. Garments in this category may have a hood, and also be wind & water resistant to delay the need to put on your shell jacket in cold windy conditions. When purchasing insulation layers ensure the sizing and fit allows for a base layer and lightweight mid layer underneath.
Shell Jackets: This waterproof, windproof and breathable layer is your essential piece of gear. It will keep you dry when the heavens open up, or shield you from blizzards in alpine winter conditions. Wear it over a single layer in mild weather or layer up in extreme cold, this garment should always find a place in your backpack. When choosing a shell jacket for bushwalking, trekking, ski or alpine climbing always ensure the fit and sizing allows for a base layer and some mid layers underneath, this way you can use it on adventures all year round.
Insulated Shell & Belay Jackets: If you're heading to Antarctica or have an alpine climb in mind, then it is common to have a very warm insulated outer layer. You can wear it at a high camp or over your shell jacket and other layers whilst on a frigid belay or an unexpected bivy. This is a specialist piece of gear for those who feel the cold or are heading to the high mountains. Ensure the fit allows for multiple layers to be worn underneath.
The High Altitude jacket is designed purely for attempts on the World's great mountains. Every detail has been crafted to achieve the delicate balance between warmth and weight, critical for any summit attempt.
Hydronaute XT™ shell fabric is the only choice when it comes to the protection of you and your down products from wind and moisture. Hydronaute XT has been developed specifically to protect and enhance the performance of down sleeping bags and clothing. It makes the best insulation even better.
Hydronaute XT protects down from moisture on the outside, but it's on the inside where Hydronaute XT really proves its worth. Moisture vapour produced by the body can condense in the down of the garment reducing it's ability to loft. With Hydronaute XT, moisture vapour is pulled through the membrane via a molecular chain keeping down drier, maintaining loft and ensuring greater insulation and comfort.
Worn by the Australian Antarctic Division, countless expeditions to the great peaks, and adventurers in the most severe conditions on earth the Mont High Altitude Jacket is a proven garment for survival in extreme weather.
The High Altitude Jacket and Pants are made to order products. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for manufacturing. Learn more by contacting Mont on +61 2 6162 0900 or email@example.com

Highly Breathable 20,000g/m2/24hrs: If not removed promptly, water vapour from your body will gather on down & reduce its ability to trap warmth. Hydronaute XT fabric expels 20L of water vapour per square metre per 24 hours for drier down, greater loft & maximum warmth.
Warmth Sealed In: With a 100% windproof rating, even Arctic blasts will not penetrate Hydronaute XT fabric, keeping warm air trapped inside.
