Minimus 777 Jacket ‘Recommended’ by Backpackinglight
After thorough scrutinisation, our Minimus 777 Jacket has been awarded a coveted ‘Recommended’ award from the USA’s Backpackinglight.
Focusing on long-term testing in cold, wet conditions trekking in Canada, the tester examined everything, from fabric technology and seam taping right the way through to compressibility and breathability in the field, before branding the Minimus 777 his favourite piece of gear from the 2016 backpacking season.
“For an ultralight rain jacket, the Montane Minimus 777 Jacket reflects a design aesthetic and manufacturing quality that is expected from a $200+ piece of apparel.”
The Minimus 777 Jacket epitomises Montane’s lightweight without compromise ethos. Super lightweight (140g / 5oz), it is engineered for fast moving alpine activities where weight saving is essential but where functionality cannot be compromised. Features are minimal and well conceived – micro-taped seams and an exclusive PERTEX Shield+ fabric delivers breathable waterproof protection; a pre-elasticated under-helmet hood for helmet compatibility; and a miniscule pack size into its own pocket.
