Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $110

Summary

I have had this jacket for only a short time, but with the warmth and durability it has replaced my other brand that has 3 times the bulk. With a short sleeve t-shirt I am comfortable well in the 20-degree range.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Low bulk

Cons

  • None at this time.

I will have to say that this jacket is well worth the money. In my area I have to travel for 2 hours or order online to find Montbell products, but i find it worth the time. This jacket has great warmth and very low bulk.

It packs down to not much more than the size of a 12 oz. can. 

Where to Buy

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Tec Down Pants are engineered with serious mountaineers in mind, but satisfy the unique needs of backpackers and active mountain town dwellers. The Tec Down Pants are considerably warmer with roughly 30% more insulation, while having increased durability in key contact areas. This lightweight pant is great in a backcountry ski tour setting or when seeking relief from the daily grind by slipping away for a cold weather afternoon above timberline. Cut full to accomodate layers.

Lofty 650-fill goose down insulation helps the Montbell Men's Highland Down Jacket fight off the bitterness of cold fall and winter temperatures. With a shell designed for packability and treated with a water-resistant coating, this jacket is ideal as an insulator for ski touring or backpacking, although you could wear it around town everyday if you wanted to. Montbell kept the design of the Highland simple by focusing on warmth and reliability, a welcome approach to the outdoorsman who could care less about bells and whistles.
