Montane Via Trail Gaiter

Montane's Trailblazer stretch jacket features a new fabric, Aquapro Dynamic which shifts moisture form inside the garment in two ways to maximise performance in this area.

Montane says: This stretch rain shell is a formidable new piece of mountain clothing. The fabric, Aquapro Dynamic, not only has a remarkable four way stretch, but also possesses a unique system of liquid and vapour perspiration management that increases in performance during high exertion. Designed for year round mountain trail use, from backpacking to trail running. Montane's Trailblazer Stretch Jacket is part of the VIA Trail Series.

Montane's Trailblazer Stretch jacket is about the fabric, for a starters its very soft indeed - so you don't feel like you're wearing a shell garment, next its very stretchy so it moves with you and won't constrain your movement. Thirdly its very breathable - the MVTR figure don't reflect this - but thats because it moves moisture in different ways and MVTR only measures one way (see the features section for the detail).

Feature-wise the Trailblazer has twin hand pockets with a mesh inner to them, so this can be used as extra venting. The jacket also has a fully adjustable hood that will move as you do.

The Trailblazer Stretch jacket is therefore a good waterproof choice for someone engaging in high activity who really doesn't like wearing your traditional breathable hardshell.
