The Peak Dry Shell is Montbell's rainproof jacket made with GORE-TEX Shake Dry technology. Shake Dry is GORE-TEX's concept of taking the waterproof/breathable membrane and putting it on the outer layer of the jacket's fabric. The benefit of this construction creates a surface fabric that permanently beads water, eliminating the need for durable water repellent treatments. It also boasts excellent breathability, keeping you dry and comfortable even when you’re active. This construction does have its limitations. Since the membrane is on the outside of the jacket, care needs to be taken, avoiding situations where the jacket is subject to abrasion. We see this jacket demonstrating its true value on missions that are short and don't require heavy packs; like light mountain climbing and speed hikes. Backpackers with heavier loads or thru-hikers that have a light pack but intend to use it every day for 6 months would be better off going with a different option. Due to fabric sourcing limitations, we are only doing a limited run of US mediums and larges.

K-Mono Cut

ecinfo_001_00164.jpg

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 reduces the jacket's final weight.

Peak Dry Shell Material Information

This product is made without a face fabric, uniquely constructed with the waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX membrane as the outer layer.
To avoid exposing the outer layer to friction, keep your backpack as lightweight as possible to avoid exposing the outer layer to friction. When the fabric is exposed to friction it can develop a shiny appearance. Although this has no effect on the performance of the membrane, applying excessive friction to the membrane may cause fabric ripping and result in water penetration. DO NOT place this product near sharp objects or apply excessive force.

Due to the unique construction of the Peak Dry Shell, Montbell recommends that additional care and maintenance be taken with your Peak Dry Shell.
Because the outer layer of jacket lacks a face fabric, the waterproof/breathable membrane is exposed. One characteristic of the membrane is that it will readily absorb oil, including sunscreen, cosmetics, the oils that our bodies naturally produce, etc.
To keep your jacket performing as long as possible, Montbell recommends washing your jacket more frequently than you would a standard rain jacket.
The Peak Dry Shell can be cared for at home in the washing machine, but we do recommend taking some extra steps.
Wash the Peak Dry Shell using warm water on a gentle/delicate cycle with zippers closed and using a net. The net will help protect the membrane from friction. Tumble dry on normal heat or line dry in the shade.
