As a wise old head once said, “If Montane won’t come to the man, then the man must go to the Montane.” And so, without further ado, let’s discuss the Quattro Fusion Jacket, a product that Montane, on their own website, describe as “One of our most technical and innovative products yet.”
Why is the Quattro Fusion so good then? What’s all the fuss about? Well, what you’ve got here is an insulated mountaineering jacket that boasts an original and innovative blend of insulating materials – it’s not a down jacket or a synthetic jacket, or a simple fleece. It’s all of those combined.
“The Quattro Fusion combines the very best materials out there”
Like a group of superheroes coming together to save the world, or in this case, coming together to prevent the wearer of this jacket from being cold up a mountain, the Quattro Fusion combines the very best materials out there. Think two types of Pertex shell fabrics (Quantum Pro with Diamond Fuse and Quantum Air), Polartec Alpha Direct fleece, and goose down with an 800+ fill (the) power (Taylor).
With the help of thermal imaging produced in cold and wet conditions, Montane have body-mapped these various different materials, making sure the right properties are all deployed in the right places.
This properly scientific approach to evolving the jacket from initial concepts through to finished article means there’s a reassuring sense of ‘attention to detail’ woven through it.
