Product Reviews for Icarus Jacket

Montane Icarus Jacket

Absolutely delighted with the jacket, the quality is exceptional and I have spent more in the past on other so called "high end famous brands", I can honestly say this is far superior! I would recommend and WILL DEFINITELY be purchasing again soon!

Go-To Meets Looking Good

On a recent ski trip to Japan, Icarus soared above the dumping snow with breathable, weather-resistant warmth on the outside and as a midlayer. Easy packing and smooth zipper operation make it a trustworthy travel companion.

Rubbish zip, great jacket

Light, waterproof and warm, the low quality zip let’s down this jacket. It had potential to be epic but I have had repeated failures and zip frankly isn’t sturdy enough for this price and quality of jacket. Problems with quality control or supply chain? Otherwise, good jacket.

Issue With Zip

I love the overall fit and feel of this jacket and it's very warm and looks good. However, a few months into wearing the jacket, the zip has become unusable and I can't zip it up. Never had this problem before with a Montane jacket so am hoping it's a one off.

Icarus jacket

Very warm and I only wear a shirt underneath has withstood a couple of heavy rain showers also. I would say that I have found the zip to be a bit fiddly probably because it is smaller than what I am used too. But this is an excellent jacket that I would recommend and would certainly by montane products again.

Waterproof, snowproof, windproof!

Ive had the Icarus for a week or so and ive stuck it through its paces in the lakes. First day out it was cold and wet, got caught in a shower and was pleased at how waterproof it was. Same day had gales up at Blea Tarn and the windproof Pertex performed brilliantly, I was warm, a little too warm to be honest but dry, comfy and toasty! Over the last few days I've been out in the snow blizzards in cramping and have used the Icarus under my Velez and it's been spot on. Again, really warm and surprisingly flexible allowing me full use with a pack on and using ice axes. Really happy with the jacket, a great addition to my Montane kit. The only downsides are that it is (Just like my Montane hoody) on the small size and I'd say go up a size or even two depending on how snug you like it, I'm an XL in 90% of clothing but even the XXL Icarus is a tad snug on me! I'd also like to see a slightly longer version however the back did manage to never uncover my rear due to it being slightly longer. On the whole, a cracking jacket that is well worth the money.

SIMPLY AMAZING

I never thought I’d find something that would replace my Rab Microlight. This hands down beats it. I was in Switzerland high up in the Alps and Austria. I needed a jacket that was light, and due to the unpredictability of the weather in the Alps also something that would withstand rain to give you time to get a hard shell on. Sat high up in the Alps it gets blustery and cold. This jacket is toasty and warm. I have the Shadow coloured one. The good is roomy to wear a climbing helmet too.

Incredible

I've just got back from mountaineering in Austria, Bavaria and Switzerland. I've been over there alpine mountaineering, doing Klettersteig and a lot of rock climbing. It gets really chilly higher up in the Alps. I purchased the Icarus as I've always trusted Montane and use the Cobra 25 pack and Terra Trousers. The minimalist Cobra pack means I have to be really selective about what kit goes. The Icarus stuffs inside a dry sack so it enables me to carry my climbing kit and other things. The jacket beats other brands I've tried by miles. It feels a lot more stronger material wise. And definitely kept me toasty warm in the Alps. Highly recommended this item to go in your pack.
