Mountain Equipment Citadel Jacket (Winter 17)

Mountain Equipment Citadel Jacket (Winter 17)

The Mountain Equipment Citadel Jacket is possibly the warmest belay jacket on the market. Twice as warm as the Fitzroy Jacket, its Primaloft Gold insulation and Drilite Loft II Outer will keep you warm and dry no matter what the weather is doing or how long you're on the belay.

The outer is totally windproof and highly water resistant, making it the perfect jacket to deal with spindrift and windy conditions. This fabric is also used on the inner hem and hood lining, the areas most prone to wetting out. The four front pockets allow you to both store essentials and keep your hands warm, with an internal mesh pocket and water bottle holder. The back and hood feature ME's EXL system - an elastic baffle system that hugs the jacket in to your body to maximise warmth whilst minimising weight and bulk. The helmet compatible hood has a wired brim and is fully adjustable to seal out even the most howling gale.

PrimaLoft Gold is an ultra-fine microfibre insulation that is exceptionally warm, soft and lightweight when wet or dry. The ultra-fine fibres form tiny air pockets that mimic the compressibility of goose down, trap body heat and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through and away from the skin.

Reviewer: Paul, Leicester  

Excellent in very cold freezing windy weather, water resistant also, covers buttock area. Likely to be too warm if on move except in extreme conditions or if static. 2 Large napoleon pockets (maps), 2 hand pockets both sets outwith main insulation, but with thin insulating layer on outer aspect, right hand internal mesh pouch, L hand internal zip pocket map size.

Ripstop outerfabric, hood fits well, but can accomodate helmet. Sleeves long, giving protection to hands when down, and maintained wrist cover when reaching up. Sleeves slide over other garments easily allowing easy putting on/ taking off. Good easy to use zips with toggles, comfortable and close fit at neck. Elasticated lower back for snug fit. Packs into stuff sack but this is around 1 foot long by 6 inches diameter, which may be too large when climbing long routes (Fitzroy better).
