UOG TOP PICK - Mountain Equipment's Impellor Jacket - Our lightest Gore-Tex Shell - We've singled out Mountain Equipment's Impellor Jacket as one of our top recommendations because it utilises the highest breathability Gore-Tex Active shell in its newest form to provide excellent weather protection and breathability but in an incredibly lightweight package. This jacket stands out for us as a top of the range running and mountain marathon piece.

The very lightest ME waterproof shell is an ultra-breathable fall back for the most exposed situations.

Mountain Equipment says:

This minimalist shell balances a vanishingly small pack size against the reliable waterproof protection and exceptional breathability of the very lightest Gore-Tex Active fabric. Unnoticed until you need it, the Impellor comes into its own flying over ridges or racing storms on remote towers.

Mountain Equipment's Impellor Gore-Tex Jacket utilises the latest fabrics from Gore-Tex to create an incredibly light, 3-layer fabric waterproof. The fabric looks and feels amazing, it's super soft on the inside which makes it perfect for wearing next-to-skin.

It's a fairly minimalist jacket but it does have a volume adjuster at the back of the hood which is a real bonus on a jacket at this weight. The chest pocket will only fit smaller phones and a set of keys, but that should be all you want to put in there too. The cuff design is very smart with half of it elasticated and the other half acting like a run off to stop water soaking into the cuff.

This is currently our lightest Gore-Tex jacket by quite a margin.
