What is the Switch Pro Hooded Jacket?

Mountain Equipment have come up with the perfect insulated and highly breathable jacket for fast paced mountain activities. The Switch uses super lightweight and breathable Polartec Alpha insulation in the chest area to provide core body warmth and Pontetorto Tecnopile microfleece across the sleeves, shoulders and side panels. This design not only fits incredibly well, but also suits a wide range of activities. It's the perfect piece for everything form chilly summer alpine ascents to dog walking in the spring or chucking on under a shell jacket. It really does suit just about every activity.

What is the Switch Pro Hooded Jacket made of?

The Switch Pro Hooded Jacket is slightly more insulated than it's cousins (the Switch Jacket and Switch Vest) with 80g of of Polartec Alpha Inulation in the main body. Polartec Alpha is a woven insulation fabric; think of it like a fluffy string vest, and is much more stable and durable than other synthetic insulation. Because of its more open weave it allows air to flow much more easily, rapidly drawing moisture away from the body creating comfortable breathable insulation for active use in in cold conditions.

A Lightweight 20D Nylon fabric is used to protect the Alpha insulation over the chest providing lightweight wind and weather protection and to keep the weight of the Switch jacket to an absolute minimum.

Pontetorto Tecnopile is used in the top of the hood and under the arms and side panels and is one of the most versatile and tough fleece fabrics available, with a large amount of stretch. This fabric acts like big vents and is what helps the jacket to breathe so well. 

What are the features?

A durable and quality YKK zip is used for the centre zip and you get two zipped hand pockets and a zipped chest pocket. The hood on the Switch Pro is really clever. The insulation comes up the hood and around the ears to protect them in extreme cold, whilst the stretchy Pontetorto 

How does the Switch Pro Hooded Jacket fit?

M.E have designed the Switch with an Active Fit so it works best over just a base layer or lightweight fleece.

Where does the Switch Pro Hooded Jacket fit in the layering system?

The Switch Pro Hooded Jacket is an incredibly versatile piece - it can be used as a stand alone jacket on still, cool days or as a midlayer under an insulated or shell jacket on cold, damp days. The Switch Pro Hooded jacket is perfect for those needing vital body core warmth with minimal bulk and maximum breathability, so if you are thrashing your way up a snow filled gulley, putting in the miles on a long distance trek or enjoying a winter run this is the perfect piece of kit for you.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
