Description

This jacket is now also available in custom sizesSpecify Body Width and Body Length independently to order a made-to-measure fleece jacket. This tailor-made service can cope with sizes from XXXS to XXXL and is ideal if your chest/waist to height and/or arm ratios differ from standard, ready-to-wear patterns. 


The Taiga Mountain Jacket is a lightweight fleece jacket with superb wind and abrasion resistance. The worse the weather gets the more you'll appreciate this warp-knit fleece, lighter and distinctly more windproof than conventional weft-knit fleeces, and in this Mountain Jacket we have gone a whole step further: the jacket front has a totally windproof dropliner in our lightweight M1 fabric.

Please note: If you order a custom-sized version of this jacket it will take longer (approximately 45 days) to be manufactured ready for dispatch. Custom-sized versions of this jacket are not returnable and customer loyalty discount cannot be applied.

Technical

Taiga Fleece

This warp-knit fleece is primarily for real activity use rather than the street scene, although its comfort and lightness give little indication of its robust performance. It will resist abrasion and cut the wind far better than normal weft-knit fleeces, shrug off a shower and dry very quickly after a soaking. If work or play takes you out into the elements, take Taiga fleece - you'll notice the difference. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.

Notes:

  • Down Jackets are sized to fit over thermal underwear & fleece.
  • Shell Jackets are sized to fit over thermal underwear & fleece or light down clothing (e.g. Minimus Jacket): to cover thick down clothing, go up one size.
  • The arms of our outdoor jackets are designed to be long enough to keep your wrists warm when your arms are extended horizontally (when using trekking poles, for example) or when you are reaching above yourself (when climbing, for example). In this respect the arm lengths of our jackets differ from street/fashion jackets.

Reviews

This is what Graham Thompson said about this jacket in his Trail Magazine review:

  • "Taiga fleece offers a very high level of windproofness and ideal insulation for hill-walking."
  • "The jacket is a little longer than most, making it ideal for wearing with a harness or rucksack hipbelt, which inevitably cause shorter fleeces to ride up."
  • "The two large chest pockets are ideal for stashing maps, guidebooks or gloves."
  • "Trail rating: 4.3/5"
