Men's Mentor Jacket™

Style# 55103OR

De conception robuste, développée et testée pour une protection anti-tempête en environnement alpin hostile, la veste Mentor Jacket™ est un basique de la panoplie de l’alpiniste. La version automne 2013 de la Mentor™ associe la fibre légère, étanche et respirante GORE-TEX® Pro 40D et la trois couche 70D, très résistante, mettant en oeuvre la derrière technologie Gore® pour une respirabilité améliorée de 28%. Le matériau 70D est utilisé de façon ciblée pour les zones de forte exposition à l’abrasion, comme les hanches et les épaules où le harnais et le sac à dos usent fréquemment le tissu, permettant ainsi de réduire le poids de cette veste technique d’alpinisme. Le résultat, c’est un cheval de course avec le pédigrée d’un cheval de trait : une veste minimaliste, légère d’une résistance incroyable pour la garantie d’une protection et d’une performance technique et sûre en conditions extrêmes.

Great shell, plenty of features (Review by Sam)

I've used this jacket for the past two days skinning Saddleback in Maine, so I can't truthfully comment on long-term durability, but the features have been great thus far. I was looking for a waterproof shell with enough room to layer a fleece or insulated jacket, and this fits the bill despite being described as having a "trim" fit. It's nowhere near as trim as my old Arc'teryx Seeker Comp (Sidewinder) or the OR Lodestar, which has a VERY athletic fit. I've been using the Mentor in conjunction with a wool base and OR's Havoc hoody. After fifteen minutes of uphill, I've had to shed the Havoc, unzip the pits, and remove my helmet. The Mentor does a really nice job of venting, while still keeping you covered, especially with the high collar in front. The Mentor's hood fit perfectly over a Bern helmet during snow squalls.

Other things I like: the heavier denier nylon on the shoulders and waist - essentially where your pack straps and kidney belt make the most contact. It seems the jacket will hold up well when touring with a backpack.

One thing to note, should this be an issue for you, is that there's a lot of material in the sleeves. They feel pretty baggy, even with an insulated layer. No big deal so far. Separately, I recall a few reviews discussing snug armpits that restrict movement. This doesn't seem to be an issue with the 2013 Mentor. I'm a fairly slim 6'3", 175lbs, with a 34" sleeve length and I went with a medium, if that helps... definitely enough room in the pits and plenty of sleeve length.

HARD shell (Review by Hopper)

I have had a Mentor for 2.5 years. I have used it ice climbing, winter camping and backpacking. The full side zips are fantastic for ventilation and wearing a harness. The hood fits over a climbing helmet and adjusts well when not wearing a helmet. It is indeed completely water proof and bombproof. OR's infinite warranty is also great, although i would be surprised if I needed it with this one. The Mentor is well built. I would love to have another one!
