Montane wins International Innovation Award for the second year

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, honouring 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 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, with further product details to be announced in the coming months.

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