Montura hardshell jackets and rain jackets

Montura rain jackets and hardshell jackets differ in terms of application and material. All Montura rain jackets are characterised by robust, high-quality workmanship and reliable, durable weather protection with excellent breathability. For long trekking tours with heavy luggage and the most extreme weather situations, technical jackets made of robust 3-layer Gore-Tex® nylon fabric are suitable. Jackets with a Gore-Tex® membrane are perfect as all-round jackets. Gore-Tex® Active Shell jackets are becoming increasingly popular. They are light, robust and particularly suitable for fast, sweaty activities. Thanks to their small pack size, they also fit into lightweight daypacks. Light as a feather jackets with a small pack volume, optimally suited for trails and ultra trails are Montura jackets with a Pro-Meteo® coating. These are also waterproof, windproof and breathable.

How can I wash my rain jacket?

Rain jackets should be washed regularly and preferably with a special functional detergent. Alternatively, you can also use liquid detergent. The jackets should be washed at max. 40 degrees and spun only a little, all zips and Velcro fasteners should be closed. It is best to rinse the jacket a second time.

How often should I wash my rain jacket?

Contrary to earlier views, regular washing of hardshell jackets is important to ensure long-term functionality. Sweat and dirt in the pores of the jackets attract water, causing the beading effect to be lost and the jackets to become soaked. This reduces breathability and condensation forms on the inside of the jacket, giving the impression of a leaky jacket. Rain jackets should therefore be washed at least four times a year, or more often if they are more heavily soiled.

Can a rain jacket be impregnated?

Washing the jackets already refreshes the impregnation. Even the removal of dirt has a positive effect on the beading effect. However, for permanent care of the rain jackets, an additional impregnating agent should be used. A wash-in impregnation is best suited. In contrast to spray-on impregnation, this allows you to reach every part of the jacket.

How often should I impregnate my rain jacket?

As a rule of thumb, wash four times and then impregnate once more. Nikwax care products are the best choice.

How should a rain jacket fit?

Since rain jackets are usually worn in summer and winter, they should fit well with thick underwear, but also with a T-shirt. The jacket should not be too tight, as this restricts movement, but it is also not ideal if it is too loose, as this can cause the body to cool down more quickly at lower temperatures (it takes longer for the body to heat up the air). Jackets that can be adjusted with elastic or manually with a cord are therefore best.
Especially when cycling, make sure that the jacket is long enough and should go over the buttocks, even when bent forward.

How does a rain jacket work?

The membrane or coating of the jacket consists of small pores that are large enough to allow water vapour produced by perspiration to escape to the outside. However, they are too small to allow water to penetrate in liquid form. The rain therefore beads up. The weak points of a rain jacket are always the seams, which are unavoidable. However, these are taped from the inside with special tape.

What do I need to look out for in my rain jacket?

There are rain jackets with a membrane and jackets with a coating. Membrane jackets (e.g. Gore-Tex) are usually more robust and functional. They are generally more suitable, especially for activities with higher and permanent stress, e.g. through backpacks. The advantages of jackets with a coating are usually the weight and the pack size, which results from the missing layer. This makes these jackets the perfect "always with you" jackets that offer quick protection from the weather.

What do I wear under my rain jacket?

Since rain jackets form the outer layer in the onion principle, the size should be chosen so that a T-shirt fits underneath in summer, as well as a thick fleece or even a light down jacket in winter. Classic hardshell jackets do not have their own insulation layer, they only serve as weather protection.

What is a hardshell jacket?

Unlike a softshell jacket, hardshell jackets have a stiffer, firmer feel. Softshell jackets are softer. This is due to the field of application of these jackets. Hardshell jackets are designed to protect against rain, snow and wind, while softshell jackets are mainly designed to protect against wind.
