My new favorite running jacketCustomer Rating

I have long been searching for a light wind/light rain jacket that I could also use ase a running jacket. This jacket was what I stumbled upon and wow am I am happy! Is is incredibly light, looks good and has an athletic fight. I actually choose a size larger than my normal size because I read somewhere that Montane is smaller than usual - so keep that in mind! The jacket is my new favorite clothing and is always with me in my backpack.

Super light and super packableCustomer Rating

Having used the Montane Jetstream Jacket for the previous 4 years (I lost it in the mountains somewhere!) I was confident that the Featherlite™ Marathon Jacket would be as capable a performer as the Jetstream. I am not dissapointed, despite being slightly heavier the Marathon if anything is better. The Jetstream tended to steam up when "giving it some welly", the vents on the Marathon do a great job of keeping things fresh. What makes the Featherlite™ Marathon Jacket the best wind/shower proof jacket on the market is it's packable size and low weight. Great for stashing in a daysack when out on the fells or out on the bike. Just the job for hilly races or triathlons when "full body" cover is a prerequisite but you want to keep the weight down.

All-rounder!Customer Rating

I love this jacket, it goes on virtually every outing. It is a great jacket to wear on winter walk-ins coupled with a base layer. Sweat just wicks away and once at the climb it disappears into the smallest space in your pack and you can be into nice dry cloths before your climb. Also gets used as a windproof all year round, one the hills, at crags, running jacket, and when out mountain biking. Seems to take a lot of punishment without showing much wear and tear. The fit is quite slim but no different to other montane jackets. For the extra lightweight aficionados, go for a smock. The lack of a zip reduces the size quite a bit.

Crackingly lightweight and durable, fiddly zip.Customer Rating

disadvantages: zip pull is very fiddly, esp with cold hands. lack of pockets I compared this to a buffalo windshirt, but the buffalo isn't featherlight so maybe a different category. It can be used as smock if half zipped, negating the zip issues somewhat. packs down into a tiny bundle, great windrpoofing and thus warmth, combined with helly long sleeve.

Barely Notice ItCustomer Rating

Love this. Barely notice it apart from keeping the chill out. Excellent for night time runs due to the hi vis colouring. Packs to nothing.

Awesome quality running jacketCustomer Rating

I wear this jacket for all my cold weather running and find it absolutely superb. Its so light that I dont notice i'm wearing it compared to other brand jackets I have had in the past. Only down side is lack of a pocket. I would happily sacrifice adding a bit of weight for somewhere to put my gloves hat etc when too warm. It amazes me how I dont feel the cold and wind when its minus 4 and blowing a gale. A seriosly awesome windstopper jacket
