Montane Hydrogen Direct Women's Jacket
The Hydrogen Direct Jacket provides a perfect blend of insulation, wind protection, and breathability in one unique package.
The Hydrogen Direct Jacket uses a lightweight durable outer fabric which has an open structure and enables the encased insulation to breathe fully. Polartec Alpha Direct fleece is also added inside of the jacket which provides a warm but lightweight insulation layer. The fleece is also extremely soft against the skin designed for full comfort. The powerful wicking properties of this fabric allow the garment to draw excess sweat and moisture away from the skin which is moved to outer fabric layers, where it can be easily evaporated, leaving you feeling cool, dry and comfortable. Montane have created a lightweight fleece package that is used on this jacket and is highly suited to fast active mountain pursuits from dry and cold ice climbing conditions to clammy winter routes.
The articulated arms allow full freedom of movement and help to prevent you from feeling uncomfortable and restricted. The hem is adjustable and uses a two-sided pinchable drawcord which is super easy to use and adjust, allowing you to adjust the fit around the hem for fully comfortable wear. The hood is fully adjustable enabling you to create the exact fit that you require and is fully compatible with a climbing helmet. The hood is also insulated to keep the head and neck area warm like the rest of the body. Two concealed hand pockets have been added to the jacket which both work as compartments to place your hands on windy days, protecting them from the cold weather. The pockets also work as storage space for essential items you may require on your journeys. One external pocket has been added to the left side of the chest which provides easily accessible storage space for small essentials. The center front zip uses a full-length YKK Vislon Zip which allows easy access to a climbing harness or rucksack. A storm flap has been placed behind the zip which uses press studs at the hem to secure the flap and to prevent weather entry. A rollover chin guard has been added to the top of the zipper which is lined with brushed fine microfleece for comfort next to the mouth and chin. Finally, the Sleeve cuffs are made with stretch bound seams which provide a snug and secure fit as well as prevention of heat loss, ideal for colder training days.
