The new Gravitor Jacket on mountainhardware.com...

Posted on

The new Gravitor Jacket on mountainhardware.com talk about the jacket offering the new "Dry Q" technology. Does this one being sold on Backcountry have the "Dry Q"? Or is it an older model??

Responded on

No, the one on Backcountry has the older Conduit technology.

manuelhernandez. Yes, the DryQ Elite does offer a higher level of performance. It is waterproof (40K), Breathable (35K), and Air Permeable (.05 CFM) The Conduit Membrane, while good, did not offer this level of performance.

Also, a quick note. It looks like they have both the old version (last year) and the newer version represented on this page. Stylistically, the red is the current version and the blue and black are last years version.

I hope this info helps to clarify and we are working on getting them separated on the site. Thanks!

@Jon Webb...thank you for clarifying that up. I'm extreemly interested in the New MH Gravitor Jacket. I'm a frequent customer at Backcountry.com so I would like to buy one from the site. How do I go about ordering the newer version and not the older????

I just purchased this jacket to replace my old gravitor with conduit. I can definitely attest to the fact that the DryQ is significantly better in both waterproofing and breathability. Not that conduit was bad, but this is just incredible. This is the new version on here, and on steepandcheap lately (where I got mine). Also just realized moments ago that this is not called "gravitator"
