Constructed from a Rip Stop Nylon outer fabric that is lightweight, breathable, wind resistant and benefits from a mechanical stretch they have total freedom of movement. Polartec Alpha insulates the core area, yet is still breathable so you can regulate your temperature easily.

The arms, shoulders and side panels of the jacket are constructed from Pontetorto Tecnopile 187 fleece, providing excellent breathability, warmth, limited bulk and it is quick drying. The seams throughout the jacket are all flatlocked, ensuring wearer comfort and the fit is active, meaning that it contours the body. With the jacket being lightweight it features two zipped hand pockets and one zipped Napoleon chest pocket. The hems are all elastane bound for low bulk, comfort and packability. One of the hand pockets acts as an integrated stuff sack so the jacket will stow-away in it and with twin carabiner loops, it will conveniently clip to your harness or pack.

Customer Reviews of Mountain Equipment Switch Jacket
Just bought another one about 4 years on from my first. A fantastic mid layer which is my “go to jacket” unless it’s freezing, as it is great for everyday use as well as when out walking (and on the motorbike). Excellent service from Facewest to boot, esp as I put in the wrong postcode, so all in all highly recommend both the jacket and Facewest.
Have not used the jacket in the hills yet due to the lockdown. Have used for walking trips around were I live. Good size fit, very comfortable and highly breathable, which is what I need as I run very hot. Great service from Facewest. Jacket arrived undamaged after 2 days from ordering. Would definitely recommend this company. Roll on the end of the lockdown, have missed 2 trips to the Highlands, but fingers crossed for the Alps in July???
