Measurements refer to body size not garment dimensions.
Chest: Take measurement around the fullest part of the chest, just under your arms and across the shoulder blades.
Sleeve: With arm relaxed at your side and slightly bent, measure from centre back of neck, across shoulder, to your elbow and down to your wrist.
Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waist (natural waistline).
Hip: Standing with feet hip width apart, measure around the widest part of the hips.
Next to Skin Fit: Designed to be worn next to skin. Body hugging fit for thermal and moisture management.
Active Fit: Trim fitting garments, ideal for active pursuits. Designed to fit over a base layer as required.
Regular Fit: A classic comfortable cut. Designed to fit over base and mid layers without restricting movement.
Relaxed Fit: A generous and relaxed fit. Cut loose enough for layering.
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 combination of Primaloft insulation and a Pertex Endurance shell result in a truly versatile garment ideal for situations where you may expect cold damp conditions. Perfectly suited to extended cold weather trips such as rafting the Franklin River or walking the Western Arthurs the Moondog will keep you warm and dry. This is one of our favourite garments given it's excellent wind protection, warmth for weight, compactness and ability to retain loft in damp conditions.
I have just bought this as a replacement to my arcteryx atom AR jacket. There are some differences, but over all very happy with the mont jacket. It's warmer, more weather resistant and bigger pockets. Feels like high quality construction and materials. Stuff sack is a handy addition. Happily recommend this jacket.
Awesome jacket. I’ve worn it everyday since I got it.
Belter of a jacket. Love the location and depth of the pockets. Extremely warm, even by Tassie standards. The weird purple colour is nice too. Would definitely buy again.
We purchased 6 of these in Marmalade (close enough to Orange to use as work jackets) at this price they are cheaper than ****** hi-vis options. Very durable, comfortable, suits harness wearers (high pockets). The guys are stoked, Thanks!
This thing is seriously the ducks nuts! I took a gamble and bought it online, but it is perfect! The fit is great, and it is so warm! Pretty much completely wind proof and while I haven't yet worn it in the rain it has shrugged off the dog water getting spilled on it with no hassles lol... also goes great under my work jacket which is definitely not wind proof, and under a hoodie when we are out on the training field! I like it so much that I've bought another one!
Arrived on time. Fit was as per chart. Haven’t been out yet since I live in Brisbane, always warm here Looking forward to trying it on the overland track.
Very comfortable, versatile and the colour is fun
My Moondog jacket is now my "go too" warm wear piece for multi day trips. Its lighter and warmer than comparable fleece and more water resistant than my downy. Its pretty much totally windproof as well. I have worn it in some pretty amazing weather and stayed dry and warm. Hats off to the Mont guys this is a great piece for the serious multi day walker or back country tourer. Love my Moondog! Stez
