Mountain Equipment Impellor Jacket
Mountain Equipment's lightest waterproof shell, the Impellor is well suited to any weight conscious activity from hill running and ultralight walking to minimalist mountaineering, says Dave Saunders
Marmot Artemis & Womens Adroit
Marmot NanoPro MemBrain
Marmot NanoPro MemBrain uses an exclusive PU membrane that has been micro-engineered to be more breathable than any membrane on the market, whilst still being 100% durably waterproof.
Using a microporous structure, with pores 200% smaller than previous technologies allows for air particles to pass through, as well as moisture vapour molecules. This air exchange massively reduces the build up of moisture inside the jacket, a problem typically found with many existing fabric technologies. We hope you will agree that a 140% increase in breathability is pretty remarkable.
Ulitmately, by allowing air and moisture vapour to move through the jacket more freely, you, the user, enjoy a more comfortable experience.
It’s worth pointing out that NanoPro MemBrain is not like other air permeable technologies on the market because it is a 2.5 layer construction, and it’s different to other 2.5 layer jackets because it’s air permeable.
