Live Breathe Hike With GORE TEX
At Ellis Brigham, our passion for the outdoors is evident. Our staff know what is needed for your next adventure because they have experienced the same challenges first hand. Hiking expert Marta, from our Fort William Store, recently went to Glenmore Lodge in the Cairngorms to test out the latest GORE-TEX products in some classic Scottish conditions.
Marta’s Go-to Hiking Essentials
“I’m lucky enough to have the Nevis range on my doorstep, but even in the summer months, wet weather protection is a must. Lightweight, waterproof and with a nice fit and feel, the Quarrel jacket is a personal favourite. For the mixed terrain and ever-changing weather, my trusted Meindls are yet to let me down.”
Mountain Equipment Women's Quarrel GORE-TEX Jacket
This great wet weather jacket combines comfort and performance with great success. Made from a 40 denier GORE-TEX fabric, it’s lightweight yet windproof, whilst the GORE C-Knit backer feels soft and supple against the skin. It’s a perfect year-round hiking jacket for long days on the hill in mixed weather.
