MT500 Waterpoof Jacket wins Pinkbike’s Best Gear Award

The Pinkbike best gear award

We’re stoked to announce that the flagship of our legendary MT500 MTB range – the MT500 Waterproof Jacket – has been selected as the winner of Pinkbike’s Best Gear Award for 2015. The MT500 Waterpoof jacket is Danny MacAskill’s go-to waterproof and protects him whilst riding in the Black Cuillin or on the streets of Glasgow.

The MT500 Waterproof Jacket received a makeover last year with a refreshed design and uses our latest, high tech fabric, ExoShell60™. This offers a colossal breathability rating of 60,000g/m²/hr and an impressive waterproof rating of 18,000mm. The ultrafine, flourine free membrane is up to 50% thinner than standard and is protected by a super-thin denier tricot laminate and results in a garment that boasts an incredible durability to weight ratio and results in a mimimal pack size. ExoShell60™ is Bluesign approved and the DWR treatments are PFC-free.
