Brigantes Presents – High Angle Solutions – Montane Alpine Stretch Jacket MultiCam

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

As part of the Montane tactical mountain clothing project we have developed a light weight soft shell.  The Alpine Stretch Jacket is designed to provide protection from the elements whilst not interfering with any rope systems or harnesses.

The jacket has an athletic cut with drop tail to reduce drag and protect the lower back when bending over.  Despite the fit the stretch fabric allows excellent freedom of movement as well as wind and moisture protection.  The cuffs have a generous gorilla grip closure to allow for easy use even with gloves.  Long sleeves ensure good arm coverage when reaching and a raglan sleeve construction means that there are no seams to dig into your shoulders when carrying heavy loads.

The jacket is closed with a double zip and there are two large napoleon pockets.  The fully adjustable hood has a stiffened peak and is helmet compatible.  This follows common design features of UK garments which are made to cope with the intense weather conditions encountered in the British hills and mountains.

This is a ultra-focused product which is galaxies away from the standard issue jacket that we are all used to.  A must for all operators.

Quick drying and stretchy they present a highly comfortable combat uniform which is ideal for amphibious and mountain operations. The garments have been designed to work alongside mountaineering hardware and equipment and offer excellent protection from the elements whilst still maintaining high levels of breathability and functionality.

Due to the high degree of stretch in the garments they allow for a full range of motion and are significantly much easier to move in when compared to the more traditional poly cotton or NYCO options. They are therefore the ideal clothing for the fast moving light role operator who relies on speed in order to complete their mission.

High Angle Solutions – Brigantes Presents – Montane Super Terra Pant Tactical

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Following two years of development Montane are pleased to announce that the first style in their new tactical range is now available.  The intent was to produce a tight range that had its roots in the best elements of the Montane civilian outdoor clothing.  Montane have established an excellent reputation for producing innovative and functional designs that are exactly what you need when you are in the hills and mountains.

The Tactical version of the Super Terra Pant has some significant differences to its civilian counterpart.  These changes reflect the needs of this particular user group and the pressures that are put upon individuals operating in challenging environments.  This has resulted in a product that is designed to work alongside climbing equipment and allow a full range of motion without compromising on robustness.

Over the next few weeks it will be joined by a line of focused products specifically tailored to operating in mountain environments.  All these products can be accessed by getting in touch with the team at Brigantes who are happy to offer support and advice from their team of experts.
