Mountain Equipment Womens Vanguard Insulated Jacket

{{ vm.state.webThumbOverlay.code }}

The Women's Vanguard Insulated Jacket is a seriously warm synthetic layer that combines insulation, wind protection and breathability to provide you with ultimate comfort when exploring the outdoors in cold, difficult conditions.

The Windstopper outer combined with the PolarLoft Duo insulation allows the Vanguard to thrive in the worst conditions. A fully adjustable mountain hood is also helmet compatible to ensure it is ready for you regardless of what you are doing, a 2-way main zip is also great for easy, fuss-free use when wearing a harness. The two handwarmer pockets are fleece lined for superior comfort for chilly hands. The stretch cuffs are great for sealing out cold spots and a dual tether hem drawcord is great for cinching in the hem for maximum warmth without running the risk of having snagable loops hanging below your jacket.

A great jacket for active use on the coldest days, excelling in freezing, damp and windy climates.
