changabang - 17 Mar 2018

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Mens Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Marine

Bought from hill and dale after they notified me they had my size in stock, wore today up kinder in a blizzard with serious windchill, coat felt absolutely bulletproof, totally windproof and being mountain fit easily accommodates layers underneath. The snowskirt feels a bit weird at first but after ten minutes forgot it was even there. I have a feeling this could be the best shell I have ever owned and I have had quite a few. Got to thank hill and dale, excellent service, will be using them again.

Great price. - 06 Mar 2018

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Mens Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Cardinal Orange

I was very happy with the service and the price of the jacket. I bought it as a present for the wife as she likes a jacket with a bit of length with plenty of room to layer up. Most ladies jackets are to short for her. I would give the jacket 5stars if it wasnt for the zip. It doesnt seem to work very well when fastening it up from the bottom. Maybe because it is new but I will give it a bit more time. It is very fiddly and sometimes doesnt connect properly so the zip only goes up on one side of the zip.

Mountain Equipment Changabang Jacket - 02 Jan 2018

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Mens Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Cosmos

I was looking to replace an old TNF Summit series, TNF seem to only make anoraks for the high street these days.

I tried several Mountain Equipment (ME) jackets in various stores, but I particularly wanted one with the snow stop. Having read reviews I decided to go for the Changabang - top of the range Mountain Equipment, but hadn't actually tried it on. This jacket was for general hill/mountain use and occasional skiing.

Difficult to find a stockist where I could actually try it on - I phoned ME, but they weren't overly helpful. Blacks don't stock and Cotswold wanted full RRP payment on deposit simply to order in. Googled and found Hill and Dale, very good reviews about service. Phoned them up and they even extended the Black Friday discount. Very helpful, great service, great price. Would definitely use Hill and Dale again.

Picked the Cosmos colour, arrived and was surprised it is actually dark blue, it looks black in all the photos (even at ME). However, happy with the colour. The jacket is single layer, scrunchy Goretex. No lining. Not all like the TNF Summit it replaced. Was initially disappointed but after using in the Alps for a week very happy with the jacket. It is very much a waterproof technical shell. Hand pockets are high, but this it to avoid lower pockets which would get in the way of a harness. Good fit, I chose the medium and it is fine for extra layers and yet good movement in the shoulders. Definitely waterproof, pit zips good, all zips great quality, chest pockets good and zips easy to pull closed. Good sized hood, able to take a ski helmet. Nice high neck, soft finish fabric there better when cold and face/chin is in jacket at neck. Hood wire is a little hefty, hood doesn't roll around neck so well, may improve with age.

Overall, happy with purchase. If I had paid full RRP I would probably be a little disappointed, but with the great Hill and Dale price and their service I am mo0re than happy.

Mountain equipment changabang. - 27 Oct 2017

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Black

My wife bought me this jacket and I have to say that it's the best gore tex pro jacket I've ever used its built life a tank 80d material all over 4 large chest pockets and a zipped internal pocket plus a sleeve zipped pocket the hood is super too fully adjustable , I've got a Xtra large which is quite roomy I've got a 46 inch chest so I probably could have done with a large so I think they run a little on the larger side but you won't be disappointed disappointed I promise you, the service from Hill and outdoors is amazing thank you 😀.

Bombproof but lightweight - 23 Feb 2017

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Black

Bombproof construction means it's probably overkill for alpine skiing, but I'm moving to Norway where I expect to ski frequently throughout several long Winters so it'll get a lot of use, and on walks where I want something lighter than my very heavy Winter parka.

Hood adjusts well between warm hat and ski helmet without being monstrously huge as some are (e.g. Kongur). Sleeves slightly long for me in an M but that's an issue I tend to have with most jackets which fit me in the body. I prefer the Changabang's roomier cut in the body too. An important feature for me was the wrist pocket for a ski pass: as I'll be buying one for the whole season I don't want to risk losing it off the end of one of those clip-on cable retractors. Lastly, although there's obviously some branding, it's not too in-your-face and I like its understated, classic looks.

Tough but few frills for the price - 29 Jan 2017

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Black

I bought the ME Changabang to replace an old and much-used TNF Summit Series jacket. Nothing wrong with the top-of-the-range stuff from TNF, I just don't like the weird colours they use these days. After looking at the Arc'teryx Beta and Patagonia Refugitive jackets I plumped for the Changabang as the best compromise between performance and price. A great deal at 21% discount from Hill and Dale clinched it. The jacket is certainly well made but not well finished in terms of design touches for comfort. It's very utilitarian. There's no soft lining of any kind, and the zip-in snow skirt looks like an afterthought. I think it's a little on the short side and, as others have observed, it's a pretty slim fit with not much allowance for layering. A down jacket or 800-fill pull-over would struggle to fit underneath. Pockets are fine, and I like the fact that you get four of them, but two hand-warmer pockets would be a good addition. Some more micro fleece around the neck, rather than just at the chin latch, would be welcome. The hood rolls up, so that the outside surface of the hood becomes the lining of the collar against the wearer's neck. Not the most comfortable solution but I am glad that there is some sort of stowage mechanism. The ski-pass pocket on the arm is useful, too, but I'd reach for an insulated jacket if I were to be on skis all day. Performance in the rain and sleet is excellent, and lives up to the ME billing. If this were a vehicle it would be a Land Rover Defender rather than a Range Rover. Nothing wrong with that: performance is great, but I expected a couple more touches for comfort at the price.

Great jacket and great price - 29 Jan 2017

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Mens Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Marine

Bought in sales so got a fair bit of discount on it. Exactly as it should be has kept me very dry during some periods of heavy rain. Little bit of a noisy rustle when wearing but nothing too annoying as I expected it to be so. Great pockets and zips, feels really solid and very well thought out. Only thing that really niggles is when the hood is pulled in tight with no helmet, the elastic cord inside that is adjusted from the rear of the hood seems to always sit just on the top of my ears, never had this with any other jackets but its not something that would stop me buying the jacket again. Delivered quickly. Overall very pleased

Great Jacket - 02 Jan 2017

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Electrum/Marmalade

When it finally came time to replace my old North Face Jacket, I for the Changabang pretty much based on the bullet proof nature of the other bits of Mountain Equipment kit I own. I`ve not yet tested the jacket in full winter mountain conditions but on a few days out in the hills it has proved to be comfortable, a good fit with no arm lift, plenty of good sized, easily accessible pockets, and an adjustable hood that lets you keep reasonable visibility when looking around. Looking forward to taking this on some bigger trips.

Excellent skiing & winter climbing jacket - 14 Jan 2016

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Imperial Red/Crimson

Excellent fit: longish but close to the lower body with good chest room. Nice & snug all round. The arms give full articulation without trying to lift the jacket. The pockets are clear above harness level. The pockets are well positioned for maps & museli bars. The pit zips are essential for skiing and long enough to work well. The snow dam was one of the key points on my selection list: it fits well but I've not tested it yet with a full front trip/flip into a deep snow (looking forward to that).

The zips are fiddly and I'll be changing all the zip pulls for some I can grasp in gloves or mitts.
Possibly not so good for winter climbing because the close body cut may not allow full layering for those long days freezing on shady stances in Scotland - so make sure you try if before buying (unless you're very skinny - and I'm not chubby!). Otherwise and excellent jacket.

Review of Changabang Jacket -Black (AW15) - 04 Jan 2016

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Waterproof Gore-Tex Jacket - Black

The jacket has four generous sized pockets for storage of items and also a ski pass pocket on the left hand side of the garment,- which I can even fit a small leather wallet inside,-very useful.The Changabang is made of goretex pro fabric which is up to 28% more breathable,-it is windproof and waterproof.The material is 80 denier throughout,- so should provide the best protection for the worst winter weather or rain.It has a good sized hood/helmet compatible,- with a wired peak which can be adjusted.
It is a mountaineering jacket,-so is a mountain cut. It has an internal snow skirt which unzips and can be removed if desired.
In my opinion it is a very good jacket and I am very pleased with this purchase from Hill and dale outdoors,-who gave me a 21% discount.-It was a good price,-with excellent customer service and prompt delivery.-A very good shopping experience,- I would consider buying from hill and dale outdoors again.Thankyou very much.

Great waterproof jacket - 29 Dec 2015

This review is for: Mountain Equipment Changabang Jacket - Imperial Red/Crimson

Just bought a new Changabang jacket from HillandDaleoutdoors at an incredible price. It replaced an old ME jacket. This new one is fantastic. Spent Christmas under water in the Lakes and it kept me dry and warm every day. Not a leak even after hours in persistent rain. Water simply runs off and when you finish just towel the beads of water off the jacket and hang it up ready for next time. Zips are strong, pockets well designed and hood very large and well engineered. Can't fault my new Changabang in any way. Throroughly recommended.
