What is the Shivling Jacket?

The Shivling Jacket from Mountain Equipment is a lightweight, packable and fully waterproof Gore-Tex Pro Jacket. It offers great all-round protection and also packs down small enough to keep in your pack all year round for those 'just in case' days in the hills or when you're out and about town.

What is the Shivling jacket made of?

Mountain Equipment has constructed the Shivling using Gore's toughest, most breathable membrane, Gore-Tex Pro. Gore-Tex Pro is fully waterproof, windproof and one of the most durable membranes available. Layered over the top is a durable 40D nylon outer fabric to offer reliable protection from general mountain and trail abuse. 

What are the features?

The face panel is completely seamless for maximum comfort and to help increase overall breathability; this is because the only part of a Gore-Tex jacket that isn’t breathable is the seam taping, therefore the less there is, the more breathable your jacket will be. Hood-wise, you get the superbly designed helmet compatible Mountain Hood which provides full protection without being too big and baggy; it's also fully adjustable, so you can synch it down snug if you don't have a helmet on. Two large A-line pockets take care of storage, whilst large pit zips allow you to dump excess heat quickly when you're moving fast. 

How does the Shivling Fit?

Constructed with a trim Alpine Fit the Shivling has enough room underneath for lighter layers and the articulated pre-shaped sleeves and shoulders allow for complete freedom of movement.

Where does the Shivling fit in the layering system?

The Shivling is primarily designed as an outer shell, more commonly referred to as a hard shell; which means it works well to protect you from strong winds on cold days, right up to torrential downpours.

Care & Advice

Care and maintenance

To keep your outdoor clothing and equipment in tip top condition and performing to its maximum we recommend the use of Nikwax products. We have been using Nikwax products since day one (26th March 1986) and have found them to be totally reliable, dependable and effective. Today’s Nikwax treatments contain environmentally friendly elastic water-repellent polymers that bond to fabric fibres, leaving the spaces between open and breathable. These stretchy polymers are able to stretch and move with the fabric so they stay put for longer and work better.

Nikwax treatments will not change the look or feel of the fabric and they are all water based, environmentally safe, non-flammable and contain no nasty Fluorocarbons. Nikwax products can be used to clean, re-proof and revitalise all your outdoor technical clothing and equipment.

Waterproof breathable clothing has a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish applied to the face fabric during the manufacturing process. The DWR forces water to bead up and roll off the surface therefore preventing the fabric from absorbing moisture. If the outside of your jacket is soaked in a layer of cold water, the warm damp air within can’t escape and will condense on the inside. This makes the jacket feel cold clammy and can make you think that it’s leaking. The DWR finish is not permanent and needs to be maintained and revitalised to optimise performance.

This three layer waterproof jacket should be cleaned regularly with Nikwax Tech Wash; I wash my jacket about once a month, or more often if it gets really filthy. Regular washing with Tech Wash will maintain the DWR for longer and remove salts and oils that can contaminate the fabric, and it will keep your lovely jacket clean and smelling fresh. Washing can be done in a machine according to the manufacturers care guidelines (on the internal label). First clean out any detergent and conditioner residue from the machine dispenser and then add the required amount of Tech Wash and away you go. Hand washing is also suitable but be sure to rinse the garment well.

When you notice that rain/water is no longer beading up and rolling off it’s time to re-proof. Nikwax TX Direct will re-instate a long lasting DWR to completely rejuvenate your jacket. Re-proofing can also be done in the machine once a garment has been washed. Just add the TX-Direct and use the same programme you used for washing. You can also use the spray-on product on a damp garment that has just been washed.

You wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and never have it serviced, so make sure you regularly wash and re-proof your quality kit.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
