Mountain Equipment Saltoro (2103)

£220.00

Here’s a new jacket from Mountain Equipment that appears to compete directly with the better-established Rab Bergen. The Saltoro is made from 3-layer Gore-Tex so its waterproof and breathability standards are well-established. You get just two chest pockets, and these are huge so they easily provide room for cold hands, maps or guidebooks. They are easily accessed no matter what ...

Mountain Equipment Trojan Hooded Jacket (2013)

£160.00

Not all Gore Windstopper fabric is the same, and the version used in the Mountain Equipment Trojan Hooded Jacket is a lighter weight without added insulation inside – and the result is a more general-purpose garment that is slightly lighter in weight than some options. The Trojan offers the wind- and water-resistant qualities of other jackets, but has a softer ...

Mountain Equipment Borealis Bivi (2013)

£190.00

A traditional style of bivvy bag made largely from Gore-Tex Starlite – hence the price – the Mountain Equipment Borealis Bivi offers high levels of waterproofing and breathability in a compact package that can be washed (in pure soap) to keep its performance high. It’s pretty much even stevens on the weight and pack size stakes with the Rab Storm ...

Mountain Equipment FireFox (2013)

£200.00

The Mountain Equipment FireFox is well-established, and is now made from Gore-Tex Active fabric to keep its weight down to just 335g (size L), despite having pit zips and chest pockets. It’s about 3cm longer at the hem than some similar-looking jackets. The jacket has an exposed front zip with an internal stormflap that’s about half the width of some ...

Mountain Equipment Bastion (2013)

£180.00

Slim and close-cut for activity, the Mountain Equipment Bastion, a new jacket, is very well-featured. Gore Windstopper Active Shell makes up the outer, cutting wind chill and increasing water resistance while retaining breathability. Mountain Equipment has catered closely for the British walker: the company’s own weather-resistant Polarloft fill looks after insulation; soft-shell cuffs make the fit around the wrists both ...

Mountain Equipment Lightline (2013)

£170.00

Mountain Equipment’s Classic Lightline, a frequent winner of Trail ‘Best in Test’ awards, is now renamed the Lightline, although it remains otherwise unchanged this year. There is a good amount of quality down used so it feels genuinely warm, thus you can feel safe in the knowledge that it’ll beat the chill. The outer is Drilite fabric, which is waterproof ...

Mountain Equipment Diamir (2012)

£280.00

The Mountain Equipment Diamir makes you feel completely protected in the worst of British weather. Though slightly on the heavy side at 530g (size UK12), it is very stormproof and amazingly durable, with Gore-Tex Pro Shell Tenacity reinforcements over the shoulders, upper back and upper arms. The rest of the jacket uses highly breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell Ascendor II fabric, ...

Mountain Equipment Seraph

£240.00

A really technical-looking jacket with all the features of a top-quality waterproof. It’s comfortable to wear, with adjustment at the cuffs, waist and hem to fine-tune the fit, and soft fabric at the chin to prevent chafing. The hood is fantastic – deep enough for the biggest heads of hair, with adjustment side and back to lock it down tightly ...

Mountain Equipment Kongur 2011

£290.00

A frequent winner of Trail tests, the Mountain Equipment Kongur is made from Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric like many others; but what I particularly like is that you get a little extra length in the body. You can still wear a harness and climb in this jacket, but you just don’t get as wet compared to shorter options. Also the ...

Mountain Equipment Morpheus/Seraph 2011

£240.00

A well-proven jacket that has frequently been highly rated in Trail tests. The Mountain Equipment Morpheus for men and Seraph for women boast a great set of features that Mountain Equipment is well-known for providing. So you get three large chest pockets that can be easily accessed while wearing a rucksack hipbelt. The pockets are not mesh-lined, so they don’t ...

Mountain Equipment Firefox Gore Active Shell Jacket 2011

£200.00

There are many waterproof and breathable fabrics out there, and for autumn 2011 there is a new kid on the block: Gore-Tex Active Shell. This new addition to the Gore stable is billed as their ‘most breathable waterproof fabric ever’, so if you are tired of getting wet in the hills from condensation could this be the fabric you have ...

Mountain Equipment Classic Lightline 2011

£160.00

The Mountain Equipment Classic Lightline is only a tenner more than in 2007 when it was Trail’s ‘Best in Test’. Put it on and it is very cosily warm and ideal for sitting on summits in winter or making a brew outside a tent. The hood is well-insulated and has a wired peak so you get excellent protection in a ...

Mountain Equipment Kongur 2010

£290.00

The Mountain Equipment Kongur is made from Gore-Tex Pro Shell like most jackets here, so it is top of the league on performance. What I like about this jacket compared with most is that it is a little longer in the body, so it offers more protection. But the cut still allows this jacket to be worn comfortably with a ...

Mountain Equipment Ogre/Nanga Parbat 2009

£250.00

The Mountain Equipment Ogre/Nanga Parbat is definitely one of my favourite jackets of recent years, and the benchmark general-purpose hill-walking jacket in my view. There are no changes from previous years and as this was ‘Best in Test’ last year it is up to the other brands to come up with something better to shift it from the top slot. ...

Mountain Equipment Morpheus/Seraph 2009

£200.00

A well-proven jacket, the Mountain Equipment Morpheus (the women’s version is the Seraph) boasts all the essentials for a hill-walker wanting to travel reasonably light. It is made from Gore-Tex Pro Shell, so you get excellent condensation control. Better still you get a stormflap over that front zip to keep rain out in a downpour. Also the pockets are not ...

Mountain Equipment Ogre/ Nanga Parbat

£220.00

The Mountain Equipment Ogre/Nanga Parbat general-purpose jacket is a frequent winner of Trail reviews, and last year it was improved with the addition of Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric. This shaved around 40g off the weight and gave the jacket a soft feel. No changes this year, so you still get a little extra length compared with the average jacket, meaning ...

Mountain Equipment Lightline

£150.00

This is a very warm duvet jacket, and it’s warmer than most others. It incorporates 250g of down insulation, and the shell is very water-resistant. The collar is also fleeced-lined. There is a little extra reinforcement on the sleeves and shoulders for extra durability. You get a removable hood too, which fitted well and had plenty of insulation. The two ...

Mountain Equipment Moonwalker IV

£180.00

This synthetic sleeping bag is made with Polarguard Delta (the most efficient type of synthetic insulation) and constructed with a shingle overlapping method to reduce cold spots. The shell is ripstop nylon and it fends off water extremely well, which is essential in a typical condensation-drenched winter tent. The long side zip has been carefully designed not to snag, and ...

Mountain Equipment Ogre/Nanga Parbat

£220.00

A frequent winner of Trail reviews, this general-purpose waterproof jacket gets a facelift in winter 2007 with the introduction of Pro Shell fabric. This shaves around 40g off the weight, and gives it a softer feel while retaining excellent condensation control. You get just a little more length than many modern jackets, so that the hem just cups the bottom ...

Mountain Equipment Morpheus/Seraph

£200.00

With this lightweight waterproof you get classic Mountain Equipment features like large chest pockets and a great hood with a stiff peak that moves really well with the head. But it is perhaps the use of Gore-Tex Pro Shell that gives this jacket the edge over previous designs, as it allows a very lightweight fabric to control condensation really well ...

Mountain Equipment Kongur

£260.00

The Kongur has won Trail’s winter jacket test for the past two years and for me it is still the best, particularly as it now comes with new Pro Shell fabric and as a consequence less weight. The jacket has a little more length than many here, making it ideal for remaining protected from a winter storm. The front zip ...
