Ruggedly designed, tested and built for ultimate storm-worthy protection in remote, big-mountain environments, the Mentor Jacket™ is a staple of the alpinist's quiver. There's no replacing this popular jacket, so instead we gave it a makeover. The Fall ’12 revision of the Mentor™ retains the widely imitated blend of rugged, waterproof/breathable 40D and 70D three-layer GORE-TEX® Pro. But our updated design more precisely targets high-wear areas for use of the more durable material, like the hips and shoulders - places where a harness or pack often abrades the fabric – allowing for a further streamlining of an already minimal alpine shell. The result is a racehorse with a workhorse pedigree; a lightweight, minimal and ruggedly durable jacket offering reliable protection and technical performance in extreme conditions.
