Ashington, UK /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – UK-based high performance outdoor clothing and equipment brand, Montane, has announced that its Torren Jacket built using the brand’s innovative Petrichor technology, has been selected for a 2024 ISPO Award.

As an international trend-setting platform, the ISPO Awards acknowledge innovative sports products and services, honoring outstanding achievements and pioneering material developments. The Torren Jacket – Built to Breathe Mountain Air – which will launch for consumers as part of the Montane AW24 collection later this year, has been selected as it sets a new standard in outdoor wear, blending cutting-edge functionality with a commitment to making responsible choices to reduce environmental impact.

Constructed from Montane’s innovative new Petrichor fabric technology, the Torren Jacket features a category leading 3-layer fabric that is highly breathable and PFC/PFAS chemical-free, ensuring superior wet weather protection.

A minimalist design approach from Montane means that the Torren Jacket withstands the test of time, moving away from unnecessary elements for a sleek, timeless look. This focus on simplicity enhances its aesthetic appeal, supports responsible consumption choices, and contributes to its versatility as a layering piece.

Montane’s Marketing Director, Matthew Hickman said, “We’re thrilled to receive an ISPO award for the second consecutive year. This accolade for the Torren Jacket is a testament to our ongoing commitment to the pursuit of perfection in our industry.”

“The Torren Jacket, featuring our Petrichor technology, has been recognized for its advancements in waterproof technology, particularly around addressing the current challenges prevalent in the industry. This accolade affirms our dedication to pushing boundaries and setting new standards.”

Of its success, the ISPO Jury praised the Torren Jacket describing it as: “Timeless design without appearing dull. Additionally, the innovative Petrichor technology and overall material composition are convincing. A contemporary outdoor textile with a good impetus for further developments.”

The Torren Jacket will be launched to consumers in August 2024 as part of the Montane AW24 collection at montane.com
