The Saltoro is a great jacket for taking into the mountains. The combination of Gore-Tex materials keeps the weight down without sacrificing too much protection or breathability. A great all-round walking jacket.

Mountain Equipment says

A lightweight and protective waterproof shell with hybrid GORE-TEX construction for trekking and backpacking in the mountains. GORE-TEX 75D and GORE-TEX PACLITE® fabric are combined to give a lightweight, comfortable shell that retains the durability required for regular use with a pack. Our Alpine fit is completely unrestrictive for all day use and the proven Mountain HC Hood is a reliable refuge in the worst weather.

Our Verdict

Mountain Equipment's Saltoro Gore-Tex Jacket uses a combination of 3 layer Gore-Tex 75Denier and 2.5 layer Gore-Tex Paclite making it an active yet durable jacket. The higher denier on the shoulders and outer arms mean this is tough enough to use in harsh mountain conditions with a weighty pack whilst the Paclite body keeps the breathabiltiy rating high enough to make the jacket usable for more intense activities. The two way zip and harness compatible pockets make this a great jacket for climbing and scrambling if the weather turns.

The pit zips are one way and don't extend down the arm, I found them a little fiddly and whilst the increased comfort and maneuverability of a shorter opening is nice it also means the fast cooling for the vent is reduced. I found the length of this jacket perfect however, the cut across the chest is quite slim and I think a size up would be necessary, especially for layering up in cold conditions.
