The Montane Direct Ascent Jacket uses high performing eVent fabric to create a tough shell jacket that is highly waterproof and super breathable. This jacket has specific features designed to aid backpackers and mountain walkers.

Montane says:

Designed for year round mountain walking weather protection, the Direct Ascent Jacket uses nylon-faced eVent fabric to provide superb durability, breathability and total waterproofness. It is perfect in stormy weather conditions where the jacket can be comfortably worn 100% of the time. 

Fully featured, it has a great, functional pocket combination, climbing helmet hood and is longer in the body for extra protection. From the Scottish mountains to the American Cascade Ranges, the Direct Ascent Jacket is perfectly suited for long days in wet, cold and stormy weather.

|eVent Waterproof Fabrics use Direct Venting Technology - a proprietary and patented waterproof membrane allows millions of tiny pores to breathe at their full potential. Sweat vents directly to the outside of the fabric in one easy step. Click Logo to read more..

This is the workhorse of the Montane range, an exceptional hood, durable eVent Hurricane 3 layer, two external hand pockets with one internal mesh pocket with Montane design and build quality.

At 416g there are lighter weight alternatives (of course), so there is a compromise, but what the Direct Ascent jacket provides is performance with durability and long life, especially important qualities if you intend carrying a heavy rucksack for extended periods in heavy weather.

Despite being a hard shell we found the eVent fabric to be quite supple.
