The Mountain Equipment Ogre Jacket is a year round waterproof jacket for use in mountain environments providing protection from wind and rain. It uses two weights of 3-layer Drilite fabric, 40 denier through the main body, underside of the sleeves and sides of the hood with heavier 70 denier reinforced fabric providing increased durability through the shoulders, top of the hood and upper arms.
Mountain Equipment have used their excellent Mountain HC (helmet compatible) hood on the Ogre, fully adjustable so it can be cinched right down to provide excellent storm protection. The addition of pit-zips allow for additional venting when you're working hard and the weather is still grim, this way you stay protected and comfortable. And when the weather is fine the Ogre is very packable taking up little pack space.
Drilite is a Polyurethane membrane which is designed to be waterproof, highly breathable and durable, it also offers some stretch. It's formed from a single layer which transports water vapour through it's structure from the inside whilst being a barrier to water and dirt on the inside. It is laminated to various face fabrics depending on the garment and a Silica coating is applied to the inside, aiding moisture absorption and giving it it's dry-touch feel.

This would be a great jacket if not for one issue... the main zip gets continually caught up on the inner flap behind, especially around the neck area. Incredibly frustrating even when just trying on at home, not to mention on a wet mountainside. For a jacket at this price I was hoping for more, alas it will be returned.
