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 outer will keep you warm and dry no matter what the weather is doing or how long you're on the belay.
The Drilite Loft 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 the hood lining, as these areas are more prone to wetting out. The PrimaLoft Gold ultra-fine microfibre insulation is exceptionally lightweight and warm, even if it gets wet. 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.
The Citadel features in the back of the jacket and the hood, ME's EXL system. This is an elastic baffle system that hugs the jacket into your body to maximise warmth whilst minimising weight and bulk. The Super Alpine hood is helmet compatible and features a wired brim, being fully adjustable so it will seal out even the most howling gale. With the Shoulder Shield construction there are no seams over the shoulder and arm areas, this is beneficial as it minimises heat loss and water entry. There is no shortage of storage options with four front pockets to both keep essential items close to hand and also to keep your hands warm. Inside the jacket there is an internal mesh pocket, that is perfect for pre warming your gloves in and a water bottle holder. The Citadel also features ME's Mountain Fit, this allows your layering system to move with you and gives you a greater freedom of movement.
