The Women's Montane's Sabretooth Jacket offers protection from wind & light rain, with a fleecy internal face to the fabric it also offers insulation making it an ideal winter softshell.
For the majority of mountain activities and for 90% of the time, POLARTEC® Power Shield® alone is the most comfortable and effective outerwear. Blocking 98% of the wind, highly breathable, water repellent and extremely abrasion resistant, the Sabretooth has phenomenal potential.
The advantages of a softshell are obvious; stretch for active comfort, less rustle than a hard shell, warmth without weight and weather protection. Featuring classic Alpine features; adjustable hood, venting pockets and active tailored fit, the Sabretooth is an outerwear jacket that gets worn, not carried.
The Women's Sabretooth Jacket is made from Polartec Power Shield, which is one of the best performing softshell fabrics around at the moment. Softshell fabrics come in a variety of weights, the lightweight versions offer protection from wind and light rain but little warmth, whereas the Power Shield used in the Sabretooth is one of the heavier weights and therefore offers insulation as well as protection. The internal face of the fabric feels like micro fleece, so its very comfortable to wear and feels quite cosy.
We also like the two way zip which can be unzipped from the bottom or the top.With a concealed external chest pocket, two hand warmer pockets and a technical hood that can be adjusted to move as you do, the Sabretooth is a really flexible winter softshell.
