Minimus 777 Pull-On

rated 4 of 5 stars The Montane Minimus 777 is a 3-layer waterproof breathable jacket that eschews weight by using 7 denier fabrics for the membrane, inner and outer face (hence the name). It is spartan by design, but at only 4.7 oz still packs a hood, elasticized hem and cuffs, singular chest pocket, and water resistant zip. It would be best for trail running, thru hikers, or UL backpackers. FIT *For reference I am 6 foot, 170 lbs and received a men's large (42" chest, 34" waist). The fit of this jacket is spot on.

Spine Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Montane's Spine Jacket is a Goretex shell that appears to be very well put together. It combines very light weight with essential functions—windproof, waterproof, cuff and hem adjustments, a good hood, and pit zips. The jacket has an athletic cut that limits weight and allows for limited layering underneath and only one small chest pocket. If you truly want fast and light, it's a great jacket. BASIC INFORMATION AND HISTORY A bit of history that may be of interest: this jacket is named after the… Full review

Anti-Freeze 2.0 Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Medium weight down jacket that offers a good balance between warmth and portability. This jacket weighs about 550g (19oz) in size large. It contains 200 grams (7oz) of 650+ fill power down encased in a 50 denier polyester shell. By way of comparison, the Rab Cirque — another down jacket of roughly similar overall weight — has 260g (9oz) of insulation encased in a 30 denier shell. The Montane is therefore not as warm, but is made of tougher outer material.   The Montane Anti-Freeze 2.0 has… Full review

Grand Tour 50

rated 4 of 5 stars The Montane Women’s Grand Tour 50 is targeted for long distance hikes and tours. It is a lightweight backpack with full functionality and good load stability. The pack is an all-around performer and sports some unique features that set it apart. I found the pack to be very comfortable for loads of 20-30 lbs., with the exception of one contact point on my lower back. The unique feature set, overall comfort and fit, and savings of weight more than make up for any detractions. Specs: Fabric: Main-RAPTOR… Full review

Hi-Q Luxe Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This jacket screams PERFORMANCE!!! The Hi-Q Luxe Jacket is a highly water resistant/windproof mid-weight synthetic jacket that continues to perform when wet, yet still has the positive attributes of a goose down jacket. PrimaLoft Gold Luxe synthetic fill is much lighter and more compressible than previously available synthetic fills. Along with a redesigned cuff/sleeve configuration, this jacket excels with temperature regulation, making it an ideal three-season piece of gear for hikers, backpackers,… Full review
