The Snugpak MML3 Softie Smock is a windproof and water-resistant outer garment with an insulating filling, designed to provide thermal protection on cold days, as well as high protection against wind and rain.
The MML3 Smock was developed with the help of professional navigators, mountain leaders, climbing instructors, meteorological staff, and military personnel, and can be used for a wide range of activities including alpine walking, rock climbing and skiing.
Thanks to the use of its 'Softie Premier' filling, the MML3 Smock is lighter than normal expedition style jackets, making it ideal for trips when size and
weight need to be kept to an absolute minimum. It is ideally worn over the top of breathable base layers that allow moisture to be transported away from your
body, keeping you dry and regulating your core temperature. In severe weather conditions, the cut of this smock allows for the layering of additional base or mid layers, while it is also possible to wear the smock underneath a waterproof shell jacket. In warmer conditions, the Softie Smock is light enough to
be worn when static for long periods of time.
The quick-drying outer fabric has been treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish. This water repellency can be maintained throughout the life of
the garment with a cool tumble dry cycle after washing, and periodic re-treatment with a suitable aftercare product such as Nikwax.
The Softie Smock allows essential equipment to be carried centrally within a spacious pocket on the chest, allowing easy access when wearing a rucksack or climbing harness. This pocket also incorporates two D-rings to secure essential items, such as a compass or whistle, as well as tethering waterproof cases so that they do not need to be carried in an unsafe position around the neck.
The MML3 Smock also includes a large outer pocket on the front of the central chest pocket, with a hook & loop security tab and a functional D-ring. This pocket can accommodate an A6 folded map, or a notebook and pen/pencil, or smartphone in a waterproof case. In front of this is a smaller outer pocket with hook & loop security tab, ideal for keeping your compass close to hand, or for securing smaller energy gels, pens, pencils etc. when on the move.
Within the high collar of the smock sits a slim pocket, which can be used to store rolled-up items such as a scarf, Buff or skull cap. Last but not least, the Softie Smock design also incorporates a harness compatible, muff-style, TS1 hand-warmer pocket. It can also be used for storing other essential items and will keep them safe due to the deep pocket and side zips that prevent items from falling out.
Across the smock you will find various hook-and-loop patches, designed to accommodate APALS® Personal Identification (PID) LEDs, or 3M Scotchlite™ Reflective Tabs, helping to make you more visible in low-light conditions.
