The ISPO Awards recognize innovation in products and services throughout the sporting industry, honouring pioneers in the field. The Solution Jacket, which will be available to buy as part of the Montane SS24 collection next year, showcases Montane’s increasingly considered approach to our product line and will become an integral part of our waterproofs collection.
“We’re delighted to learn that the Solution Jacket has been recognized on the international stage by ISPO. The Solution has been years in the making, with it being deeply rooted in our core mission - enabling a journey through nature whilst knowing our impact and correcting our path and this is an important step forward for Montane.” Matt Hickman, Montane Marketing Director
Careful consideration has been taken in the design process of the Solution Jacket to provide optimal performance whilst adopting a more responsible approach to materials and construction ahead of the launch in February 2024.
Every aspect of its build has been carefully thought out to ensure optimal performance, while adopting more responsible materials including its use of recycled Pertex Revolve fabric [100% face fabric, 75% membrane, and 100% backer], a PFC-free DWR, and progressive use of trims such as YKK Natulon zips which use recycled tape.
Product longevity is further progressed by the solution-dyed plain weave face fabric. The use of this technology, where the color pigments have been mixed with raw recycled polyester pellets, results in the jacket being permanently colorfast to washing and sunlight due to the color being completely integrated into the yarn. Using this technology can reduce the water and energy consumption in addition to producing fewer CO2 emissions.
The Solution Jacket features include meticulously placed vented storage with recycled inner pocket mesh, providing dual-function front pockets that also adapt into large front venting for improved breathability and temperature regulation. A front adjustable hood with a reinforced peak and pre-elasticated back offers an exceptional fit and cover, with a raised collar providing both protection and comfort.
