Massif has several new items this season and everything is available now.
First up is the Altitude Jacket and Pant. Made from SABA, a nonmembrane softshell. It’s an FR softshell for Infantry that is highly breathable intended for 3-season use due that incorporates DWR. You can move in it and not build up sweat. Plus, it’s the quietest fabric in Massif’s lineup. Think Level 3, action suit. They’ve slimmed the fit down a little and it’s meant to be worn by itself or with under layers. You’ll notice some common DNA in the Jacket’s layout but the Pant is something completely new. Look for zippered slash front Alpine pockets as well as low profile internal cargo pockets with Velcro closure. Rear pockets also close with Velcro.
Next up is the Rainier Winter Combat Shirt. It’s a hybrid design, crafted from Battleshied in the upper torso and arms for climate control which is an exclusive Gore FR stretch fabric for Massif. This is combined with FR SABA fabric in the torso for breathability. It’s a classic FR Combat Shirt design with a 1/4 zip front.
The Caldera is an FR Wind Shirt. It’s made from two fabrics. SABA on the upper torso and sleeves and a new fabric called BattleSkin on the torso. It’s a plaited fabric which means it’s a single layer fabric, knitted with a nylon face and a Nomex modacrylic on the back. This also means it’s very breathable and dries really fast. The Caldera boasts a walk dry time of 22 minutes which beats the pants off of the current mil-spec of 60 minutes.
