The fusion of technical materials featured throughout the North Star Lite deliver supreme durability coupled with superior weather resistance to offer a complete solution for those that are always on the move, in the more extreme conditions mother nature creates.


Outer Materials

The outer shell of the garment utilises PERTEX Quantum Y Yarn construction enveloped within a protective Super 100 DWR coating for unmatched durability and weather protection.

PERTEX Quantum Y Yarn

Pertex Y series fabrics use unique Y-shaped filaments inside the yarn. The design benefits from a number of advantages as it balances extreme lightness with high strength and increased durability. The unique shape of the yarn locks together to provide added stability. This results in a softer, smoother fabric surface with greater water-beading properties.

The stability provided by the uniquely shaped filaments maintains the performance of Y series fabrics over extended washing, when compared with traditional methods, Y shaped filaments retain their structure with greater efficiency.

Super 100 DWR

A highly durable water repellent finish that provides excellent water shedding through extended wash and wear. The innovative 100 DWR is five times more durable to washing than standard water repellent finishes, maintaining 80% of its water shedding capability after one hundred washes. Which is a nice feature for a jacket you may be considering to keep a while.


Insulation

Equipped with 200g of 90/10 High-Quality Allied Feather and Down at 800+ fill, utilising HyperDRY technology from Allied to deliver a superb blend of premium quality insulation with water resisting properties. The result is high-grade insulation and extreme weather resistance for extreme weather.800+ fill Power

The ratio of high quality down being 200g 90/10 ensures the product you're buying is of the highest calibre and is able to meet the demands of cold weather exploration. 800+ is one of the highest available (with 850+ being the maximum) and delivers efficient thermal regulation and micro climate creation; as the down is able to loft to its maximum potential for enhanced thermal efficiency and heat retention.

HyperDRY Hydrophobic Down

An added level of weather protection sees a water resistant treatment applied to the down from the masters of the material at Allied feather and down. HyperDRY is an evolution of water resistant down (WRD) which has surpassed its early incarnations in every way, leading to the creation that is now HyperDRY.

Built upon years of research and development of the previously successful Allied resist water resistant down. Through constantly pushing boundaries, Allied developed proprietary nanotechnology treatments and procedures creating the most effective water resistant down on the market. The methods provide an invisible coating that does not compromise the texture or colour of the fill whilst offering more effective water resistance than synthetic water resistant treatments.


Internal Construction

Offering maximum durability the internals of the jacket feature a PERTEX Quantum Rip Stop lining throughout the design, with a left hand zipped pocket for secure storage and protection of valuables.

The use of PERTEX Quantum Rip Stop throughout the lining provides the jacket with added strength whilst still retaining a lightweight form. Quantum is light and strong offering significant weight reduction without sacrificing strength and abrasion resistance. The soft touch of the lining allows the down within the loft to its full potential.


Practical Features

With such technical materials, processes and construction its safe to say the North Star Lite is a formidable piece of kit with a range of practical benefits gained through intelligent design and technical tailoring.

For unrestricted movement and high reaching gestures the jackets technical tailoring prevents hem lift and other disturbances in form. Reducing accidental exposure to the elements and spindrift entry, keeping heat locked in even during complex movement.

The baffled hood features a stretch bound face aperture with a rear pre-elasticated design, delivering a close fit to maximise heat retention and weather protection. At the chin a soft fleece guard protects the lower facial features against the rougher edges of the garment,ensuring that when you go full coverage you remain comfortable and focused.

Two large zip-locking front facing pockets provide ample space for valuables and smaller equipment whilst offering a welcome respite for cold hands. The sleeves of the jacket have been designed to allow for rolling up the arm to aid cooling, and the low profile cuts back on unwanted bulk to further free up arm movement.

A fully adjustable hem allows a customisable fit with lightweight trims throughout to aid packability. Complete with its own waterproof Montane storage bag the jacket can be compacted and for easy transportation and storage.

If you're looking for something to tackle the slopes with, or just the sporadic winter weather, the Montane Women's North Star Lite Jacket has more than got you covered.
