What is the Makalu Jacket?

The Makalu is a tough, fully-featured, reliable waterproof jacket that will keep you dry and protected in all conditions. Whether you're on a long, committing backpacking trip or gully bashing in the harsh Scottish winter, this is the jacket you'll want on your back!

What is the Makalu made of?

This jacket features a fully waterproof Gore-Tex 3-layer construction with a mixture of 50D and 75D outer fabrics. A slightly lighter, more pliable and fully recycled 50D fabric is used throughout the main body of the jacket, while a tougher 75D fabric is used in high-wear areas such as the shoulders and upper back. Both outer fabrics are then coated in a durable water repellent coating to allow water to bead off the surface, increasing breathability. The jacket has a surprisingly supple feel and is breathable enough to cope with high aerobic, non-stop routes.

What are the features?

Starting from the top, the Makalu features a helmet-compatible and fully adjustable hood that can be cinched down to sit snug to your head when you're not wearing a helmet. Storage-wise, the jacket has two generous hand pockets and a chest pocket in the front that all have YKK water-resistant zippers. As well as these outer pockets, you've also got an internal laser cut and laminated chest pocket — an ideal place for your phone.

To seal out the elements the jacket features adjustable laminated cuffs, dual tether hem drawcords (that doesn't catch on poles or ice axes) and a 2-way YKK moulded centre front zip. When you're working hard and you need to dump excess heat quickly you'll appreciate the easy to use 2-way YKK zipped pit zips under each arm. The toggles throughout the jacket are also generous enough to use with chunky gloves on.

How does it fit?

The Makalu uses Mountain Equipments Alpine Fit block. This has enough room to accommodate a baselayer and a low profile mid-layer. This fit has been designed to reduce the amount of dead space between layers and eliminate excess material resulting in a warmer, lighter-weight jacket.

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.
