33 years and 8 generations of refinement, Montbells flagship rainwear embodies the Montbell design principles of 'Fast and Light' and 'Function is beauty'.
The Storm Cruiser is the flagship rain wear line for Montbell and has been produced for 33 years. Now in its eighth generation, the Storm Cruiser embodies the 'fast and light' and 'function is beauty' principles of Montbell design.
The full coverage Storm Cruiser Jacket, utilising the uniquely soft Gore C-Knit Backer Technology, is light weight and dependable. By incorporating the C-Knit concept this rain jacket becomes supple, quieter, and far more comfortable than our previous models. Gore-Tex C-Knit is a nylon 7-denier mesh laminated to the inside of the Gore-Tex membrane that improves comfort and breathability in real world situations. It is a true 3-Layer Gore-Tex fabric.
Ballistic nylon is one and a half times more abrasion resistant than other similar weight fabrics and boasts three times the tear strength of nylons that are almost 20% heavier. Because of this, Ballistic nylons have allowed us to reduce the weight of many of our products by more than 50% without sacrificing the durability. We create Ballistic nylons by heating and stretching nylon fibres. Much like tensile steel, this process aligns the nylon molecules in each fibre, dramatically improving the strength and stamina of the fabric.
Fitted with a 3-way adjustable hood, well placed pit zips, and alpine cuffs the Cruiser gives you the ability to adjust on the fly for changing conditions. Weather resistant zippered pockets keep valuables dry, secure, and at hand. Being low in bulk and extremely pack-able this parka is ideal for everyone from the seasoned backpacker to the world traveller.
