Montane Black Ice Jacket (Winter 13)

The Montane Black Ice Jacket is a versatile piece of insulation with high quality 800 fill power (US) down fill designed for both cold winter nights, basecamps and active mountaineering use. The boxwall construction is designed around the contours of the body, minimising empty cold spots inside the jacket and providing maximum down loft in evenly distributed panels.

Down Fill Power Explained

To guard against the down becoming flattened or sodden, there is Primaloft Eco synthetic insulation on the shoulders, hood and forearms. This improves both the lifespan of the jacket and the insulation in these high-wear and exposed areas. The outer of the jacket is also highly weather resistant in case of being caught out in a rain shower.

For use in adverse conditions, the jacket has a fully adjustable helmet compatible hood with a wired peak and front drawcords - these are securely fixed into baffles on the front of the jacket enabling easy adjustment without loose ends to whip you in the face if it's windy! There is also a hood roll down tab in case it is not needed. An internal sleeping bag style neck baffle keeps warmth in your core area in the coldest conditions, together with a half-waist drawcord and adjustable hem.

Reviewer: Abel , Birmingham   (17-11-2014)

I'm off on a 5 week expedition to Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas next year and needed a decent down jacket for the evenings and 6000m climbs. The Black Ice appealed due to it's incredibly light box wall construction: Most jackets with this amount of down are typically sewn through construction, bringing a greater risk of cold spots. It is very well thought out, with the core cinch straps looking particularly useful at conserving heat when I'll have a harness on.

The only downside I can see is the lack of hydrophobic down (can't complain as it is an old season product), but hopefully the 800mm hydrostatic head will keep moisture at bay!

Brilliant service from Facewest, my first time buying with them and hugely impressed. Now I have 18 to spend on other shiny kit as well with their rewards scheme!
