The clue is in the name with this one. Montane's Ultra Tour Jacket is designed for long distance fast packing and changeable conditions on mountain trails. The reason it's ideal for this is because it's constructed from tough yet lightweight 40 denier Pertex Shield fabric which is waterproof and highly breathable. It's durable enough to carry a descent pack weight for extended periods of time without having to worry about damage to the DWR.

The features have also been thoroughly thought out for a jacket of this purpose. It's stand out features are a 3 point adjustable roll-away hood with a stiffened peak that fits comfortably over a helmet, angled underarm low profile pit zips to aid venting and two OS map-sized mesh lined hand pockets purposely positioned clear of your pack hip belt. And that's just a few of the features!

When you consider all it's features and the durability of the jacket it seems quite light at only 420 grams (size medium). Yes there are cheaper and lighter jackets on the market, but they may not be as breathable or built for long distance past packing.
