Reveals, New Launches and Gear
Montane Hi-Q Luxe Pro Pull-On
Available in fall of 2016, Montane’s new alpine-oriented pullover is sure to make ski-touring buffs rejoice. The Hi-Q Luxe Pro combines stretch micro-fleece panels with synthetic baffled insulation. The baffled insulation is filled with PrimaLoft’s Gold Luxe insulation that retains heat even when it is wet. To keep the insulation from getting wet in the first place, diamond baffled Pertex Quantum CS-10 fabric is used in the chest, top of the hood and upper arms. Quantum CS-10’s high water resistance and ultralight weight make for the ultimate in weight-saving protection.
