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.

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

Terra Pants

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, very comfortable, and dries very quickly. Bought these for walking in the lakes, very comfortable and light to wear. When they get wet they dry out very quickly, saves wearing waterproof. Only paid £56 so value for money. Don't think they would be warm enough in winter unless worn with a baselayer. Full review

Prism Bootie

rated 5 of 5 stars The Montane Prism PrimaLoft-filled booties are one of the best camp booties I have used. They are not the warmest booties in my collection, but are warm enough for use in snow and air temperatures down to 10°F or so with a heavy pair of wool socks. I walked around in them on somewhat rocky and sandy ground in comfort. The Pertex outer shell is very water-repellent, and the synthetic sole stood up well to walking around on rocky soil. Background: When I (and most climbers, backpackers, and backcountry… Full review
