Montane is launching its first range of GORE-TEX® clothing, and to celebrate is teaming up with George Fisher to offer readers the chance to win a men’s or women’s Spine Jacket.
A new collaboration between British gear manufacturer Montane and the world’s leading developer of high performance textiles - W. L. Gore & Associates – sees Montane launch a brand new GORE-TEX® specific shell range this winter. From the outset (established 1993), Montane’s philosophy has always been about enabling aspiring athletes to go further, faster by offering a combination of premium, specifically selected fabric technologies, cutting-edge construction techniques and ensuring that their clothing is designed for distinct outdoor mountain pursuits.
The new Montane GORE-TEX® shell collection features the Men’s and Women’s Spine Jackets, constructed from lightweight, breathable GORE-TEX® Active Shell and designed to meet the intense demands of mountain runners who face challenging and changeable weather conditions. Named for the gruelling Montane-sponsored Spine Race along the Pennine Way, the minimalist and uncompromised features mean reduced weight, a mere 291g for men’s version and 262g for the women’s, and enhanced packability, making this the perfect jacket for the lightweight winter trail runner.
As ultra runner Marcus Scotney says; “I control so many factors in an ultra-marathon. It is up to me to do the right training, stay injury free and ensure my muscles are strong and flexible enough for long distances. My responsibility is to prepare my nutrition plans, pacing strategies and identify the lightest, most functional gear. Every element of my preparation must be on point so that when I race I can focus entirely on my game. The only thing I can’t control is the weather.”
We’re teaming up with Montane to offer one men’s and one women’s Spine Jacket in our competition. The entry deadline is 12 noon on 7th November - see full terms and conditions.
GORE-TEX® ACTIVE FABRIC
Garments made with GORE-TEX® Active fabric are durable, waterproof, windproof and extremely breathable; the most breathable fabric in the GORE-TEX® product family. The construction combines a lighter, thinner GORE-TEX® membrane with a fine 40 denier (or less) outer fabric to deliver an ultimate 3-layer solution. On the inside, a proprietary lamination technology integrates the backer textile directly into the GORE-TEX® membrane. The ideal fabric for aerobic done-in-a-day activities, garments made with GORE-TEX® Active fabric are lightweight and soft, with excellent next-to-skin comfort, thanks to reliable moisture management. The fabric’s construction keeps your body dry by reducing the accumulation of sweat so you stay cool during activity and warm during cool-down.
