The Mont Bell Tachyon Jacket is nearly imperceptible, while packing to the size of a candy bar. The Ballistic Airlight nylon utilized here is a wispy 7 denier fabric capable of trapping hard earned body heat next to your skin, while shielding you from all but the strongest of winds. POLKATEX treatment resists gentle precipitation just long enough to grant you the minutes necessary to find shelter as the storm approaches.
Make sure you have a secure grip on the MontBell Men's Tachyon Jacket when you pull it out of your pack; at just 1. 6 ounces, this featherlight windbreaker would be in danger of being taken on a ride by a stiff breeze. The Polkatex DWR finish shrugs off surprise thunder showers and the underarm mesh inserts keep you comfy when you're on the move.
Weighing only 1.6 oz. and packing to the size of a candy bar, Montbell's water-resistant Tachyon Jacket utilizes a wispy 7-denier fabric to trap your body heat and shield you from all but the strongest of winds.
