Was originally looking to get the montane minimus jacket but for the extra 70g or so the added toughness of the gortex active material made the spine a no brainer. This coat has been to Iceland in -5C-10C temperatures and the Pyrenees in 15-30C and has performed perfectly in both (not sure how much the pit zips helped though!).

I previously owned a gortex pro shell but didn't notice the performance difference at all to be honest. It doesn't have any pockets apart from a rather small chest one so I had to change where I kept my map, gps etc but it was only a temporary inconvenience. Fundamentally what you are getting is a top performing, well fitted shell with very few extra features.

I don't think you'll find a lighter gortex active shell on the market.

PS. it is a slim fit, get a size up if you want to fit a light down garment underneath.

(ordered the black version even though it says blue. Must have clicked a wrong button somewhere).

This is a great jacket for winter running, very good rate of moisture exchange leaving you feeling good under intense training. The hood works well, keeping in place in windy conditions. My only gripe being, I would like to see at least one extra pocket as the chest pocket due to its size is very limited as to what you can store in it, which forces you to look at other options when it comes to the likes of a mobile phone and keys ect. Other than that this is a great jacket.
