Made with GORE-TEX Fabrics, which offers world's class performance in waterproof/breathability in a super lightweight, compact package. Constructed with attention to the last detail with waterproofing and water repellent treatments in order to maximize functionality, including processes to prevent water retention at the joints of the cuffs and hems. Weight reduction measures include Smart Sewing, minimization of sewn parts, and reductions in the width of seam tape. Offers outstanding performance for high momentum activities such as mountain climbing and speed hikes.
Ballistic Airlight® is made using the same nylon polymer as our Ballistic® material and a highly technical production process to create extremely fine, super thin threads. These threads are then woven into ultralight, gossamer fabrics that share the same characteristics as Ballistic®: one and a half times more abrasion resistance than other similar weight fabrics and boasts three times the tear strength of nylons that are almost 20% heavier. Additionally, Ballistic Airlight® is often woven using different techniques to create fabrics with radically different characteristics, such as fabrics that allow the garment to stretch or fabrics that "breathe" to release built up heat and moisture.
Cut from a single piece of fabric, K-MONO CUT drastically reduces the amount of seam lines eliminating areas where water can penetrate, promoting the jacket to be waterproof and lightweight. This innovative pattern is based on Montbell's philosophy of "Ki-no-bi" which is a Japanese term for "Function is Beauty".
< WATERPROOF > Reducing the amount of seam lines eliminates areas where water can penetrate the jacket.
< LIGHTWEIGHT > Minimizing the amount of seam lines and tapes reduce the jacket's final weight.
This product has been seam sealed to increase waterproof performance and prevent water from entering the inside of the product. Due to limitations in construction, it isn't possible to seam seal the pockets. Since the pockets are not waterproof, it is recommended that you place valuables in a waterproof case or take other measures to prevent water damage. Drainage holes have been added to the bottom of the pockets to prevent water from pooling.
Since this product is designed to be as lightweight and compact as possible, it is made using very lightweight materials. When the fabric is stressed, it is possible for the membrane to darken the appearance of the outer fabric. However, this has no effect on the membrane's waterproof performance.
