The Ladies' Munro Jacket is the female equivalent of the award winning Munro Jacket. It uses the same System Dual Protection technology for which Keela has had great recognition. The principle of the System Dual Protection is to reduce internal condensation, it does this by drawing the moisture away from the body with hydrophilic laminates.
The Ladies' Munro is waterproof, windproof, and highly breathable. It has a concealed ordinance survey map security pocket, a mobile phone pocket, and 2 zipped chest pockets with stormflaps. For extra protection from the elements it includes a detachable inner snow skirt and attached rollaway hood with wired peak.
The Ladies Munro is adjustable at the hood, waist, hem, and cuffs and for ventilation there is an underarm zip which is protected with double stormflaps.

System Dual Protection How does System Dual Protection work?
We use an outer fabric, which is coated or laminated with a breathable membrane, and team it with a mesh lining, which has a high wicking hydrophilic (water loving) membrane laminated to it.
These two layers of fabric create an air gap providing a natural thermal barrier, protecting against heat loss and reducing the need for bulky layers.
The hydrophilic membrane rapidly transports moisture (sweat and condensation) away from the body, keeping you dry and comfortable, even in the rain.
The combination of the air gap and wicking process regulates body temperature, minimising overheating when active and shivering during inactive periods, keeping you safe and comfortable throughout your adventure.
One of the key elements of our System Dual Protection range, Innovation fabric is completely water and windproof. As a breathable fabric with a hydrophilic coating, Innovation fabrics offer protection even in the harshest conditions.
Walkhighlands - "a robust coat you can wear comfortably all day in the worst winter conditions"
"I'd say that the extra bulk and weight is well worth it if you are looking for a robust coat you can wear comfortably all day in the worst winter conditions. Whilst I didn't like the feel of the bulky mesh lining that is part of Scottish company Keela's System Dual Protection, it proved to be adequately breathable and extremely waterproof in the harshest conditions, with pit zips providing added ventilation. The YKK zip is covered by a large storm flap. The two hand warmer pockets are fleece lined and there's a large breast pocket which will take an OS map. The other breast pocket is designed for a mobile or GPS, although it might be a squeeze fitting larger models in, both these pockets are accessed without opening the main zip. The rollaway hood adjusts well with a wired peak providing good visibility and movement. There is a waist drawcord and a removable snow skirt which doesn't drag on the legs too much and provides good protection against blowing snow." Outdoor Enthusiast - "a great, affordable mountain jacket"
"Keela's Munro Jacket has won awards in the past and this year there is a ladies specific version available in-store in January 2013, giving it curves in all the right places and no baby pink in sight. It's a great, affordable mountain jacket and it won't surprise you to learn it's a Scottish company, so it knows how to deal with British winter weather. It's waterproof and breathable (using it's own technology) and it wicks well, the hood rolls away and the peak is wired - brilliant in British elements. You can adjust most bits and bobs with one hand, the detachable snow skirt means you could ski in it. It sports large pit zips and double stormflaps, so not a drip of drizzle will make its way in. It's got the required media pockets and has has zippered chest and hand pockets (fleece lined, lovely) and Velcro adjustable cuffs."
