Eclipse Hooded Zip Tee

rated 4 of 5 stars Great grid fleece mid layer or cold weather base layer for active use. Of the grid layer fleeces Patagonia's R1 is the one you see the most mentioned. Mountain Equipment's Eclipse Hooded Zip Tee is I think a slightly thinner improved version with some nice details.  Fit: The fit allows for a bit wider shoulders and a slim, athletic body. Of course it fits non-athletic bodies as well, just size up. What I mean is that when I get an R1, I feel more restricted in the shoulders with a medium, but… Full review

Annapurna Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had this jacket (more a 'coat' than a jacket) for a long time. I don't get to wear it often as it's so warm, and hence it's still in great condition. The hood is great, you can feel how much loft is around your head, and the whole thing encases your body due to the elasticated differential cut. There are lighter pieces of gear, but if warmth is my main priority, then this is the insulation I will take. Great piece of gear. Full review

Changabang Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars After having a few problems with my old shell, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a more serious jacket, after speaking to a few different people I finally settled on the Changabang, I have a few other peices of kit from ME and I've been more than happy with their performance. Unfortunately the company that supplies Mountain Equipment in NZ don't usually stock the jacket, so it had to be done on a special order and I had to wait a few months for it to arrive. Once the jacket finally arrived I… Full review

Morpheus Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars This Jack is the cheapest and lightest of the Mountain Equipment Gore-Tex Pro-shell(3 Layer) range. The Morpheus has a large map pocket, 2 reasonably sized sides pockets and a draw string tightening system around the waist and chest.   The Morpheus also has Mountain Equipment's award wining hood system which is awesome. You can adjust the tightness of the jackets around your head and the height of it. There is also a plastic flap thing that gives you nearly full peripheral vision without having… Full review

Annapurna Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought mine secondhand ten years ago to take on a Himalayan climbing expedition. We did a first ascent of an easy but remote 20,000' mountain near Himachel Pradesh. The jacket performed brilliantly and I summitted out in it, having bivvied out at over 18,000 feet before the final climb. I have NEVER been cold in it. Since then I have worn the jacket many times in the European Alps, on Mount Rainier and plenty of times in Scotland in winter. The hand warmer pockets are silky smooth and totally… Full review
