Alpine Fit : Design
Purpose built as the definitive all-round mountain block; designed to be close-fitting yet still able to accommodate a full quota of under layering garments. Cut and graded for those who prefer a slightly closer fitting Hardshell, its key innovation lies in the shaping it affords between waist and shoulders. To help eradicate ‘bagging’ when leant over, the Alpine Fit features a reversed camber centre front seam which unlike a straight seam naturally pulls the front half of the jacket in around the body. This has been combined with a completely new shoulder block, which effectively re-balances the distribution of fabric between the front chest, rear shoulder and bicep. The Alpine Fit provides greater comfort whilst retaining its slightly closer fitting form through a wider range of movement
Alpine Hood : Design Philosophy
Engineered around a twin-hoop adjustment principle to control cranium and facial volume. The cranium ‘hoop’ ensuring that hood volume is controlled at the widest and most efficient point of the head and the other ‘hoop’ controlling facial volume. Crucially this facial ‘hoop’ is secured at the temple on either side of the head and is not fully circular. This prevents hood distortion across the fore-head, controls peak angle and improves hood stability. Other adjustment methods exist, but none provide the same range of adjustment that these systems combined can, ensuring M.E hoods will fit better with or without a climbing, ski helmet
Triple-layered, laminated and wired visor construction, engineered to retain its form and function better in the most difficult conditions. Hidden behind the clean lines of its exterior face lies its real secret, a concealed inner film protecting a malleable stiffening wire that is attached directly into the front seam edge using our own manufacturing process to create our acclaimed visor – one which forms a naturally strong arc when under tension and yet doesn’t flatten in violent winds to offer unhindered front and peripheral vision.
All adjusters, whether concealed or exposed are positioned so that they are intuitive to find, even when wearing goggles or grasping toggles with gloved hands.
