The missus was just watching the hidden talents programme and really liked the blue and pink Mountain Equiptment softshell / fleece Maggie wears.
I have had a google but can't find which one it is.
Can anyone help?

Many thanks

The chamonix fleece is the only soft-shell/fleece that I know of with blue and pink combined. If you check out the m.e website you can see them all there.

Thanks for your reply. The first place i looked was on the Mountain equipment website but couldn't find it. I presumed it was a 2011 model.

Many thanks

In reply to A Downing: I've had a look through the sales catalog (the one they give to stores) and that's the only thing I can find that matches up.
hope you find what you're looking for

In reply to A Downing: Hi Andy, Maggie was wearing one of our Cabrera Jackets in that picture: http://www.mountain-equipment.co.uk/the_gear/clothing/softshell/womens_cabrera_hooded_jacket---704/. I'm afraid it was one of last seasons colours and I don't think we have any more.

Are you sure...?

i) it's clearly a pullover, not a jacket
ii) there's no chest pocket
iii) there's no hood adjustment
iv) it looks like there are no hip pockets, either...

It looks like a hooded, hard-faced fleece pullover to me. Although the texture of the hood lining looks odd; maybe it is a soft shell, or maybe a soft mesh lining to the hood (to stop mad hair?).

Other than that, I don't know...

Found it, I think. Women's Arrow Zip-T, according to OM; see the article from, ahem, 1 April 2010:

Arrow Zip Tee

The Arrow is made from Toray Field Sensor fabric a nylon, polyester, elastane mix that's stretchy, feels much tougher than standard base layers, has a seam-free waist and shoulders, thumb loops and flat-locked seams. It feels sort of halfway between a baselayer and a lightweight mid-layer and should be tough thanks to its 69% Nylon element. Price is 70. The women's version gets a hood and pink trim.

Oh, here we are on the ME website...

Looks like it may have been called the Cabrera Hoody. Not the Jacket. So Rich was close... ;-)

In reply to captain paranoia: That'll teach me to reply so quickly..... I couldn't open the link on my phone so rang the office who correctly informed me it was a Cabrera Hoody, they didn't mention that it was the 2010 model! It's a slightly different thing to what I linked to being, as mentioned above, a faced fleece rather than the lightweight softshell of the current version. Unfortunately we definitely don't have any of these any more. Sorry for the confusion, I'll reserve comment until I've checked myself next time!
