It was futile trying to resist buying this stunning jacket at a great saving in a recent sale because I was looking to replace my main insulated outer layer, which is also a Montane garment originally bought in the mid to late 1990’s, purely for backpacking purposes, when there may be a really cold wind on the ‘tops’ or after pitching wild at higher altitudes in the UK. To say that I am pleased with my purchase is a gross understatement and in fact an absolute bargain, particularly at the price I actually paid. The fit is absolutely perfect with all the features I would ever wish for and for backpacking purposes I much prefer an uncomplicated design and not at all keen on having numerous adjustments to hood, hem and sleeves to contend with. The pockets are positioned to allow for a rucksack hip belt and can easily accommodate the also excellent Super Prism gloves and Prism hat (as a really compact lightweight alternative option to wearing the hood all the time) and my hands if I wish. This jacket, despite being so light in weight, is superbly designed, constructed and effective and in my opinion still offers good value for money even at its full price. Together with the Super Prism gloves and Prism hat, the best addition to my clothing kit for a very long time!

Very lightweight and toasty. One of the pockets doubles as a stucksack, which is handy. Quality is excellent, as usual.
Sizes are slightly more generous than some other brands - we bought a medium for a tall 14 y.o and a small may have been a slightly snugger fit but he's grown out of a similar small jacket from another well-known manufacturer. He'll grow into it :)
