The MT500 Jacket – The Undisputed King of Mountain Jackets

The nights are fair drawing in aren’t they? The dusty trail conditions of summer are fading in the memory already, replaced by the first signs of the glair that’s going to be with us for the next wee while. As you might expect from a Scottish apparel brand, we don’t stop riding when the weather turns autumnal and then descends into the full-on cold and wet of our winters. We spend a lot of time out in the wilds testing kit to keep you warm and dry even when it’s tipping it down and even when it’s not, it’ll be raining from the ground up.

MT500 Waterproof Jacket

With more titles than the most celebrated prize fighter, the MT500 Waterproof Jacket is the undisputed champion of mountain bike apparel delivering ultimate weather protection for epic mountain bike adventures year round. Deploying our own ExoShell60™ 3-Layer waterproof fabric, the MT500 Jacket boasts a monster breathability rating of 60,000 gm/m2/24hr as well as being powerfully waterproof. Not only that, but it is environmentally friendly, containing no PFCs.

Nothing has been left to chance. The jacket incorporates stretch panelling where you need it most for ease of movement, while backpack compatible venting ensures that airflow around the body isn’t compromised by wearing a pack. All zippers are YKK and highly rain-resistant, and the lift pass pocket in the sleeve adds to the jackets versatility. Available in women’s and men’s.

MT500 Waterproof Shorts

We turned up the “all-mountain” dial to 11 when we revamped these shorts last winter, creating the ultimate in all-day riding waterproof baggies in the process. The MT500 Waterproof Shorts feature packed throughout and the stretch waterproof panels provide an outstanding, articulated fit whilst a durable seat panel is built to deal with saddles covering in “grinding paste” that horrible days coat your saddle with.

MT500 Waterproof Glove

As with all MT500 products, the MT500 Waterproof Gloves deliver without compromise – severe weather protection without obstructing the critical connection between rider and bars. With a fully waterproof and breathable construction and light insulation this glove keeps your hands dry and warm no matter what the weather. An unpadded, synthetic leather palm and stretch outer shell ensures excellent bar feel and grip when things get gnarly.
