Is this the only shell in Mountain...
Is this the only shell in Mountain Hardwear's current lineup, which has 70D face fabric?
Jeff. There are 3 jackets in the S'11 line that utilize 70 D fabric. The Artero Jacket (in the shoulders and elbows), the Axial Jacket, and the Correra Jacket. Two of the jackets utilize a FTX Proshell and the Correra uses a special Mountian Hardwear fabric that is unique to this particular jacket. I hope this info helps!
My small jacket
These shells have a very slim fit so size up if heavy layering is desired. The stretching fabric is nice as it feels like a softshell inside. Sleeves are perfect for my "standard" lenght arms so this means they can be short for those who have long arms. The offset drop hem is very pronounced which I absolutely hate, as I think it looks out of whack with a tail on the back of my jacket. People would think you must be a weirdo to have a jacket with a tail if you wear it to the mall.
What is the riptop material? Is it 40D?...
What is the riptop material? Is it 40D? Thanks!
vml. The fabric on the Correra Jacket is called our 'Stretch Twill AXF." It is composed of a 100% nylon 70 denier false twist textured yarn interlaced in a twill weave construction. Due to this construction, it has mechanical stretch and is highly abrasion resistant and durable. The "AXF" stands for our enhanced DWR treatment that will last up to 80 home launderings. I hope this info helps!
Thanks Jon for the info! Got one more question, how come there are no "locks" in the adjustable loops around the neck? How do you "lock" in the adjustment without a lock?
The "locks" are just above the cords that are visible, and are inside the fabric. It's actually a nice system.
