Mountain Equipment utilise their own Polarloft synthetic insulation to create a warm, lightweight jacket with a low-profile look and superior styling.
Mountain Equipment says:
A lightweight quilted synthetic jacket for everyday mountain use.
Layering perfectly under a shell in the most challenging conditions but providing a warm and windproof layer when worn alone, the Rampart Hooded Jacket is an essential mountain piece. Extremely packable, light and quick to dry it is ideal for those outdoors in cold and damp environments.
Mountain Equipment's Rampart Hooded Jacket provides a very good level of warmth for it's weight, there's only a few features on the jacket in order to keep the weight down. You get an elastic cord and toggle on the rear of the hood that allows you to get a snug fit which improves the thermal efficiency of the jacket. Two handwarmer pockets, adjustable hem toggles and a really high quality main zip are also present on the garment.
What stands out for us is the styling. The chevron stitching pattern looks really cool and the Moorland Slate colour is really nice in person. The toned down logo is also a breath of fresh air, you don't feel like you're a walking advert.
