Drilite Fabric Logo

Drilite

Mountain Equipment originally developed Drilite specifically to meet the requirements for an exceptionally light, highly breathable and water resistant shell which would be able to protect down clothing and sleeping bags from dampness, they succeeded and now Drilite is used on most Mountain Equipment down items due to it's unique ability to protect down from the weather at such a low weight.
EXL Logo

EXL

EXL has been developed by Mountain Equipment to increase the comfort and warmth of down sleeping bags and jackets. EXL is an elastic lining which can expand and contract according to the shape and movements of your body. This eliminates cold spots, maximises warmth and comfort.
Sharks Toe Foot

Shark Toes Foot

Otherwise known as an angled foot box, Mountain Equipment use this in many of their down sleeping bags ranges and what it does is allow your feet to rest in a natural position without causing the sleeping bag to become taught. If the bag becomes taught then the down will not be allowed to loft properly and this will result in a loss of heat and insulation around your feet causing discomfort as nobody likes to have cold toes.
Primaloft Logo

Primaloft

Primaloft is technologies answer to down. Mountain Equipment use Primaloft in products which they feel need synthetic insulation due to the nature of the activity or climate that the item may be used for. Mountain Equipment see this as an important addition or substitution because Primaloft can insulate even when damp, whereas down will only insulate while dry. So in changeable conditions Primaloft will be the answer for insulation.
Gore-Tex Logo

Gore-Tex

Mountain Equipment and Gore-Tex have worked along side each other for many years and have produced some serious gear which has taken the world by storm, literally. The Changabang Jackets and Kalanka Jackets most notably are such strong examples of what can happen when two leading pioneers come together to create new and exciting products.
