- The Flux Jacket uses PERTEX® fabric which contains a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) as the first barrier in keeping you dry. Clean your garment in order to maintain this.
- Machine wash in warm water at 30°C/86°F with a mild detergent. MONTANE® recommends that you use Nikwax Tech Wash.
- Do not use fabric softeners or bleach.
- Drip dry.
- Your jacket may need occasional re-proofing to restore the DWR. MONTANE® recommends Nikwax TX Direct.

My favourite jacket
Great fit, good insulation. Good water-resistance on it's own for light rain or pair it with a shell for yummy warmth and waterproofing. Light and packs well - what is not to like? Also works great around town on a chilly evening and looks great.

i haven't had my flux for an aeon, just a decade or so, but for at least 6 months of each of those years it's been worn or carried. it's roomy enough to be thrown over shells at stops on the hill, warm enough to wear over a shirt to the city pub, squishes down small in a rucksack, and can even be rolled into a sleeping bag pocket to make a great pillow. apart from a 12 year old pair of socks, that are today used only as slippers, my flux is the oldest bit of kit i own, but is still going very, very strongly indeed. would i reccommend it? i gave my pal one as a weedding present, so yeah.

Must Have Jacket
This is the one piece of kit everybody should carry in their daysack. The jacket packs small and is extremely lightweight, so carrying it is not an issue. Once needed at belays etc the jacket is perfect. Synthetic insulation so even if you are wet or damp you can put if over you soft shell and it will still its job. The pockets are all perfectly placed to be accessible even with a harness or pack on. The two chest pockets are huge and fit OS maps. Most similar jackets have small chest pockets or only one, this is where this jacket pips other good brands. The insulation is great, the zips are easy, sleeves fit well in all arm postions and the hood is great with or without helmet. Best piece of clothing i have bought. Recommend everybody to get one.

Very warm and light. Great for long multi-pitch routes in the cold, it packs away well but doesn't compromise on warmth. A great jacket, highly recommended

Bought this jacket about a year ago and have never been disappointed with it. Its warm,light and works very well on the mountain as a belay/ insulation jacket. Mountain use or a trip to the shops this jacket ticks all the boxes. Fab bit of kit !!!!!

Warm, Light and a great fit
I've had this jacket for a few months now and tested it out in the fells of the Lake District in all kinds of conditions. It repels water well thanks to the Pertex so if it gets a little damp you don't have to dive into your outer shell straight away. It's really warm when you reach the summit and stop for a brew. Packs down small into it's own pocket which is handy in the backpack and has a nice amount of pockets too. I've got pretty long arms which can be a problem with some jackets but the Flux is tailored well so when reaching for hand holds you don't end up with cold wet wrists. Really happy with it on and off the mountain and for the price it's a great alternative to down, with the right layering it's seen me through -18 winds.

From -10 on the Glyders to frosty morning walks with the kids, this jacket delivers. It's my all time favourite insulated jacket that's really warm, water repellent and stylish. Combined with my Montane Mohawk shell they form an impenetrable barrier to the cold and wet.

Superb quality Softshell jacket
I have been wearing this jacket now for 12 months it has been through everything from a totally wet three peaks challenge to snowy climbs in winter up Scafell Pike. It has not let me down at all on every occasion. Only downside is zip is starting to become a bit sticky when first starting to zip up but this isnt detracting from the purpose of the jacket. It has kept me warm and dry in minus 10 conditions and also doesnt let me overheat in milder conditions. A high quality jacket
