UF PRO® has introduced the new generation of their Monsoon waterproof/breathable jackets.
UF PRO® has launched a new generation of waterproof/ breathable jackets with their Monsoon and the Monsoon XT Gen.2 Jacket. The two jackets differ in material and cut; the XT version is the more robust ‘tactical’ version, whereas the Monsoon jacket offers a more ‘civilian’ look.
Both jackets are made out of a 3-layer GORE-TEX® laminate which offers a hydrostatic head of 150m, equivalent to a water column up to 15 bar, without any water penetration and great breathability capabilities.
But the Monsoon Jackets don’t only bring great materials and waterproof construction to the table. Two features really set the jackets apart from all the rest:
- The hood has an integrated system, called the Hood/Harness®. The harness works like a cap, you simply adjust it according to your head size and when you wear it, the hood follows your neck movements, without the need to strap the hood to your head. Since the laminate isn’t directly in touch with your head, air circulation and your ability to hear is still intact while wearing the hood.
- The other feature is called the air/pac® insert. This 8mm thick mesh inserts in the shoulder area distribute the weight of plate carriers or backpacks and prevent the formation of thermal bridges.
With the new Monsoon generation, UF PRO® also glues the pocket configuration onto the jacket, instead of seam sealing them. This makes the pocket configuration extremely water resistant, and the jackets even lighter.
The Monsoon Gen.2 Jackets are available in Black, Brown-Grey and MultiCam®, and prices start at 440.00€ .
