Mountain Equipment Fitzroy Jacket Joe Brown Deal Of The Month

Deal Of The Month - Mountain Equipment Fitzroy Jacket #1  © Joe Brown - Snowdonia
The Mountain Equipment Fitzroy Jacket is a superbly designed synthetic belay jacket. The use of Primaloft One means it keeps you warm when wet; furthermore, the Fitzroy features a water resistant outer material, albeit without taped seams, so it will shrug off some pretty mean storms while maintaining a higher degree of breathability than a waterproof.

For the climbers and mountaineers out there fear not: the Fitzroy's cut is perfect. Long arms, longer at the back, and most importantly it's got Mountain Equipment's trade mark hood - big enough to fit even the largest of helmets (Petzl Ecrin Roc = OK), has a wired peak, and two volume adjusters.

These jackets have been extremely popular with members of staff and alongside the Rab Generator Alpine are without doubt the most coveted items while on a horrible belay anywhere from Bloody Chimney at Gogarth to the Shield on El Cap.

Mountain Equipment say: "The perfect piece of modern, all weather insulation; light, very durable, almost unaffected by wind, rain and snow. Equally at home on a soaking grade IV belay on the Ben as it is on Cerro Fitzroy, Patagonia."


  • 100g Primaloft® One body insulation and 60g Primaloft® One arm insulation gives a great warmth to weight ratio
  • Windproof and highly water resistant Drilite Loft fabric on critical areas - shoulders, forearms, and backside
