Lightweight insulation. Weather protection. Effortless free-ranging movement. All in one cutting-edge mountain jacket.

In cold, damp and snowy conditions, you can streamline your layering system by combining various elements. Put simply, if you won't need to change your clothes, you can wear one garment which does everything: the Women's Bastion Jacket.

Although designed to meet the needs of the lightweight alpinist, anyone who is active in the outdoors can take advantage of the comfort and protection offered by the Bastion. The shell is engineered in Gore Windstopper Active Shell, which blocks the wind as well as shedding snow and all but the worst rain, while offering stunning levels of breathability. This reassuring weatherproof armour houses 80g Polarloft insulation, to strike the balance perfectly between weight and warmth.

Whether on committing ice-routes or cold weather hikes, you need clothing which delivers more than just the best in weather protection: you need to be able to move freely, without restriction or discomfort. The Bastion boasts an excellent hood which protects while allowing your head to turn, Gore's legendary breathability to maintain comfort throughout your exertions, and an active cut and articulated sleeves - enhanced by panels of Windstopper Fast-X stretch fabric - to make sure you can all but forget you're wearing a jacket at all!

Generous pockets provide quick access to essentials, an internal security pocket keeps your valuables safe and dual-tether hem drawcords prevent trailing loops getting caught on high-stepping crampon points.

A stunning, versatile, single layer.

Superbly windproof yet comfortable
Reviewed By Elizabeth, 28 Apr 2013

I had been looking around for a long time for a windproof fleece to replace on old one which was getting quite tatty and also I wanted a hood to put up quickly when it rains rather than getting my waterproof out. Tried several makes and nothing seemed as windproof as Windstopper, but couldn't find a women's one with a hood. Passing my local Cotswold last July this was in the window and it really ticked all the boxes. It is so comfortable, extremely windproof, not too warm in the 'summer', seems pretty waterproof and smart enough to go into the pub at the end of a walk. Washes OK. I am not skinny but the 16 fits me fine. Only thing I would have liked would be pit zips but there is less padding under the arms which reduces the chance of getting too hot. A great jacket and I love it to bits!



Lightweight warm windproof jacket
Reviewed By Jeannie, 24 Nov 2012

I have recently bought this jacket as we are going to Chile in January and I wanted a jacket which was especially warm and windproof for walking in Patagonia and for going by boat round Cape Horn. However, we are also travelling up to the Atacama desert where it will be really hot and I didn't want a big bulky jacket to carry. This is just ideal as it comes with a bag and can be squashed into this bag like a sleeping bag and packed for travelling. It is really lightweight and compact. It is so soft and comfortable to wear as it is designed to fit giving ease of movement. It looks great and I am wearing it daily in the UK so it will be really useful both at home and travelling.
