Mountain Equipment 2017 Changabang Gore-Tex Waterproof Jacket - Cosmos (Small)
The Changabang jacket has had an upgrade and now features a super burly 80D fabric throughout. This provides abrasion resistance and just all round durability while climbing, mountaineering or walking. The face fabric is made up of twisted Nylon yarns maintaining its tough, durable properties whilst remaining supple and not overly stiff.
The guys at M.E. have used all of their Storm Construction techniques during the design and build of the jacket. Everything from seam construction, placements and taping; to face fabrics selection, bar tack reinforcement and storm guarded YKK Aquaguard zips have been carefully selected and designed. Fort Knox Federal Gold Reserve has nothing on this jacket when it comes to keeping things out.
To ensure a comfortable fit for all-season activities the Changabang is built around Mountain Equipment’s “Mountain Fit” block so it has enough room for extra winter layers without being too big and baggy when worn over a base-layer in summer. The sleeves are pre-shaped and articulated to allow for a more natural and unrestricted movement and the superb Mountain HC Hood is fully helmet compatible with a wired peak; it's also fully head compatible if you're just wearing a beanie. For winter pursuits the Changabang features a snowskirt to stop snow or spindrift from blowing up inside the jacket, but if you don’t need this feature it can be easily unzipped and removed.
The Dual Tether Hem Drawcord allows for greater fit customisation whilst also eliminating the risk of snagging things like ice axes and crampons. M.E have engineered all the pockets on the front of the jacket in accordance with their Stratum Storage System Construction which increases the internal pocket size by as much as 25%; so there is stacks of room for maps, gloves, hats and whatever else you like to store in your pockets.
