Employing cutting-edge synthetic PrimaLoft® Silver ThermoPlume® with Cross Core™ technology, which mimics the air trapping qualities of natural down, combined with PrimaLoft® Silver insulation in high wear areas, the Ground Control Jacket is designed to withstand cold and damp winter belays. Perfect for the Scottish mountains, the jacket has a helmet climbing compatible hood and multiple harness-compatible ockets.
Montane's Ground Control Insulated Jacket is designed to keep you warm and protected from the elements found in a typical Scottish winter mountaineering day.
With the new Primaloft ThermoPlume insulation this jacket performs well in cold, wet conditions when staying warm is vital. It has the equivalent warmth of 550 Fill Power Down but all the benefits of synthetic performance in wet conditions which see down jackets struggle. In high wear areas such as the cuffs and hem recycled Primaloft Silver insulation is used which is less susceptible to damage than down like Thermoplume.
The hood is helmet compatible and has an excellent stiffened brim to maintain your visibility in howling wind. It can easily be cinched down to size. The hem also has drawcord adjustment whilst the wrist cuffs are elasticated to to keep the heat in with a snug fit. There are 2 handwarmer pockets positioned high enough to use whilst wearing a harness or hip belt with a further chest pocket.
