Founded in Richmond, California in 1993 by a handful of ex-Sierra Designs employees, Mountain Hardwear is recognized today as being one of the most premium and innovative manufacturers working in the outdoor outerwear sector. From pioneering Gore-Tex XCR, to DryQ waterproof/breathable fabrics, to OutDry 3D lamination technology, the company has a more-than-solid reputation for pushing the envelope in terms of materials and manufacturing techniques. And Mountain Hardwear’s latest release — the High Exposure GORE-TEX line — maintain’s the brand’s innovative modus operandi with a new line comprised of a pair of GORE-TEX gloves, ski bibs, a GORE-TEX C-Knit Anorak and ski jacket.

Starting with the mitts, these robust, touch-screen-compatible winter gloves sport GORE-TEX, leather, and 330D nylon construction, foam-padded knuckles, Primaloft Gold insulation. The High Exposure Bib offers articulated knees, reinforced Schoeller instep kick patches, a low-profile suspender design with stretch-woven mesh panel, full side zips, and a GORE-TEX C-Knit shell. Each offered in a trio of color options, the High Exposure Jacket and Anorak also boast a waterproof yet breathable shell made from the same lightweight and easily-packable C-Knit material, plus they feature a drawcord hem, internal powder skirt, articulated cuffs with Velcro adjustment tabs, a myriad of zippered pockets, and a helmet-compatible hood with three-way drawcord adjustment. Pricing starts at $130 for the gloves and goes up to $550 for the jacket.

Purchase: $130+
