Rated 5 out of 5Â by DichH An outstanding serious Outdoor Product
I do a lot of trekking over UK and Europe and a good breathable waterproof is essential to getting the best experience..
I spent some time in at your Store and had great advice ( not pushy ) and in the end bought the Mountain Equipment Gortex Pro .
Why, because I felt the jacket it would do the job and felt professional ie Pockets in good positions even with a Rucksack ie Hand warmer side pockets , Map pocket and underarm Ventilation.
I have just got back from Trekking in the Lakes and the Jacket more than met my expectations especially breathability .
An excellent product at a good price.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hairy51 Just what I wanted
I have been after a new shell jacket for a while to replace an ageing gore-tex performance jacket and as I have been getting more and more into winter & alpine climbing I was prepared to move towards the premium end of the scale.
So far the jacket has met all of my expectations. Very waterproof, extremely windproof and the material feels nice and durable (only time will tell on that front...). The fit of the jacket works well with a harness, pockets still accessible etc and the hood is easy to adjust both with and without a helmet.
Overall, highly recommended for those looking for a decent shell.

Wish I had bought Gore-Tex windproof, rain proof jacket years ago. Excellent fir to my small stature. I found it very useful in windy condition in Malta. Equally effective in stormy, cold and wet conditions walking in the Snowdon mountains in North Wales.
Best buy I ever made.

I bought the jacket for a trip to the lake district. Performed very well indeed to let the moisture out as I ran up a few hills and keep the fog and rain out whilst on the tops. Fit's extremely well, packs up small, is light-weight and feels great to wear. It's expensive, but then most quality products tend to be. Good value nonetheless.

The ME Lhotse is a cracking jacket and exactly what I was looking for. It is triple later Goretex Pro and yet it is incredibly lightweight and a pleasure to wear. It has a sleek tapered modern fit, which is perfect for everyday use, whilst giving you mountain level protection. I bought this to replace a very old Berghaus Merra Peak which was my favourite jacket by a mile and had served me so well that I was hesitant to replace it, I should not have waited so long this jacket is top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Defaoitigh Fantastic High Performance Hard Shell
I was initially quite reluctant to spend that much on a hard shell, having previously gone for a slightly lower price bracket. However I'm very glad I did, Overall its performance is a cut above the rest when it comes to water proofing and breathability. It also has very impressive wind proofing, I find that I don't need a fleece under it as often as I did with previous hard shells which is a huge plus.
The pockets are a little small for storing large gloves but they are at a good height for just keeping your hands in. The map pocket is perfect, its waterproof so your wet map doesn't soak through like a mesh pocket would, also there is a clip inside the pocket for your compass lanyard so you don't loose it.
Overall an excellent jacket that I am very pleased with.
