Montane Featherlite Smock
Price Paid: Sale
Nice windshirt that even in (British) summer can be worn over a t-shirt to keep the midges off your arms and neck (tighten your head-net over the high collar).
Compresses to nothing, doesn't heat up too much, light enough to always have with you.
Needs a chest pocket really, which could double as a stuff-sack instead of the one that comes with, which is too easy to loose anyway.
Would have given it higher marks if mine hadn't started to come away at the zipper. Second Montane top with bad stitching I've had, so next time maybe a Marmot.
