Outdoor jackets

Outdoor jackets

The mountain jackets are a fundamental piece in the dress of any lover of outdoor sports because they will provide us with those benefits that we need in order to reach our goals. Warmth, resistance, breathability, impermeability, ... the range of possibilities offered by these garments is endless and will be essential to win the battle against the elements when we are in the mountains.

Mountain jackets: fiber or down?

At the moment of buying them, it is common to find oneself in doubt as to whether to choose a model with fiber fabric or, on the contrary, a down. The characteristics of both tissues are different and will be more or less adequate dedownding on the features you need from them.

The qualities of fiber jackets

One of the main advantages of fiber jackets is that, unlike their down namesakes, they do not lose any properties when wet. In this way, they become a very interesting option for use in environments with a high humidity index, with a high probability of precipitation or in activities in which we sweat a lot.

When choosing a fiber jacket, we must also take into account what is the weight of the fiber. The importance of this aspect is twofold: on the one hand, it determines the warmth, since the higher the density of the fiber fabric, the greater the thermal insulation capacity it will offer us.

On the other hand, the grammage of the fibers will also determine the weight of the mountain shelters, since the greater the greater the weight of the same. The importance of this aspect is determined by the competition they maintain with their down namesakes, whose lightness is an aspect that fiber has not yet managed to overcome.

Warmth and compressibility, virtues of the down

One of the main arguments to choose a down jacket is that they offer us a greater warmth than their fiber-identical ones. In fact, the warmth that the down offers us has not been surpassed by any other synthetic fiber on the market.

Another outstanding aspect when choosing a down jacket is its ability to expand after being compressed. To measure it, the volume occupied by an ounce of the down in question is calculated and the result is measured in cuins. The capacity of cunes of the down has not yet been surpassed by any other fiber, so the jackets or mountain jackets of downs will always be hotter, lighter and with less volume once compressed than those made with any synthetic fiber.

The response to water and water-resistant treatment

The main disadvantage of the down is that if they get wet they take a long time to dry and the down loses its properties when caking. To combat this limitation, what is known as the water-repellent treatment of the down has been developed, a technology based on an antimicrobial and antibacterial polymeric treatment that makes the down respond better in wet conditions. In this way, greater water repellence is given to the mountain jackets of downs.

The softshell: a great alternative

For those activities where cold conditions are not extreme, mountain jackets with softshell are an interesting option. These have a three-layer construction that offers optimal performance in breathability, elasticity and strength, while providing us with a light resistance to water.

The mountain jackets with softshell are an innovation in the field of outdoor, especially for the manufacture of its three layers. Its outer layer incorporates synthetic materials such as nylon or polyester and is what gives the jacket its elasticity and protection against water.

The intermediate layer is composed of a windproof membrane whose function is to prevent cold air from downetrating through it and make us lose the body heat that retains the inner layer. And finally, the inner layer of these mountain jackets is where the thermal capacity resides and, therefore, the one that helps us to conserve our body heat while we carry out our activity.

These mountain jackets are especially warm and are highly recommended as long as there is not much chance of precipitation or it is an activity in which we sweat a lot.

A wide variety in women's mountain jackets

This type of mountain jackets for women are especially warm and are one of the best options on the market, as long as it is not an activity in which we sweat a lot or there is a high risk of precipitation.

Another alternative in terms of women's mountain jackets are those made with synthetic fiber. They will be more or less warm dedownding on their weight, but above all they will be tremendously functional since in contact with sweat or moisture they do not lose properties, unlike in the downs.
