Montbell proudly presents our ninth generation Storm Cruiser, a piece fully expressing the materials knowledge and design skill accumulated since its original introduction 25 years ago. Feature rich, yet light in weight we pair 20-denier 3-layer C-Knit fabric with hand pockets, and full adjustability to offer leading edge 10-ounce rain gear. The use of our K-Mono Cut pattern reduces seam lines to insure a light design and minimize areas where water can breach your full coverage storm shell. Attention to small details in design and manufacturing has yielded a jacket with enhanced comfort, improved mobility, and light weight reliability.

With fit adjustments at three points, Montbell's Tri-Axial design revolutionized hood fit and performance: A Velcro tab at the top adjusts the height of the brim, draw cord on the back of hood adjusts peripheral vision, and two draw cords adjust fit around your face. Completed with a flexible bird-bill brim to improve rain and snow resistance. The Tri-Axial hood provides excellent weather protection, additional warmth, and improved visibility even in extreme weather conditions.
When not using hoods, it's possible to gather by a loop and Velcro in the collar back.
Easy-to-adjust Alpine Cuffs keep out the unwanted bite of winter or let in a cool mountain breeze. You can adjust cuffs according to what you wear under the shell. Since the cuffs are made from half elastic and half Velcro, you can adjust the cuffs for all activities and preferences.
This water resistant zipper eliminates the need for storm flaps, reducing weight and making it easier to zip and unzip.
GORE® C-KNIT BACKER TECHNOLOGY
Starting in Spring 2015, the Storm Cruiser Jacket utilizes the new C-Knit Backer technology from Gore-Tex. The waterproof breathable membrane has been laminated to an extremely thin knitted fabric. Compared to traditional the tricot used by Gore-Tex the knitted backer in the C-Knit technology yields a fabric that is 15% more breathable and 10% lighter. The most noticeable improvement is the feel of the fabric. The first time you wear the jacket you will be struck by the soft hand and slight stretch of the fabric, which eliminates of crinkling and rustling normally associate with rain wear.
About the material: Ballistic nylon
Ballistic nylon is one and a half times more abrasion resistant than other similar weight fabrics and boasts three times the tear strength of nylons that are almost 20% heavier. Because of this, Ballistic nylons have allowed us to reduce the weight of many of our products by more than 50% without sacrificing the durability. We create Ballistic nylons by heating and stretching nylon fibers. Much like Tensiled steel, this process aligns the nylon molecules in each fiber, dramatically improving the strength and stamina of the fabric.
Cut from a single piece of fabric, K-MONO CUT drastically reduces the amount of seam lines eliminating areas where water can penetrate, promoting the jacket to be waterproof and lightweight. This innovative pattern is based on Montbell's philosophy of "Ki-no-bi" which is a Japanese term for "Function is Beauty".
< WATERPROOF > Reducing the amount of seam lines eliminates areas where water can penetrate the jacket.
< LIGHTWEIGHT > Minimizing the amount of seam lines and tapes reduce the jacket's final weight.
Stuff sack included
Since this product is designed to be as lightweight and compact as possible, it is made using very lightweight materials. When the fabric is stressed, it is possible for the membrane to darken the appearance of the outer fabric. However, this has no effect on the membrane's waterproof performance.
