Featured in their Spring/Summer 2016 ranges, Rab and Montane have both introduced new Pertex Shield fabrics.

The Air Jacket from Montane is highly versatile lightweight mountain shell using Pertex Shield AP – our most advanced waterproof/breathable fabric. Pertex Shield AP uses an air-porous membrane with an incredibly high concentration of evenly sized and spaced pores, allowing moisture to escape whilst remaining durably waterproof. Montane_air_jacket_goldmine
