Montane's Further Faster Neo Jacket utilises Polartec's Neo Shell fabric to create a comfortable shell that offers a high level of waterproofness and exceptional breathability.

Montane says:

Designed for ultra mountain treks, trail runs and mountain marathons, the Further Faster Neo Jacket is built for optimum speed over long distances. NeoShell fabric is so breathable that under heavy exertion it really maximises convection of moisture vapour from the inside to the outside, ensuring the wearer stays as dry as today’s technology will allow.

|Polartec NeoShell, Breathing is Believing - The exclusive membrane allows air to pull moisture vapor out – even at extremely low levels of pressure. So it helps keep you drier during high-exertion activities. Polartec NeoShell is the first-ever fabric to enable peak performance in any condition.

NeoShell is a fabulous material because its highly breathable, much more breathable than other shell fabrics making it much better for wearing when you're active. The compromise is over its waterproof rating, which is lower than other hardshell fabrics, but its still high enough to deal with pretty bad conditions and it should not be considered inferior from a 'keeping you dry' point of view.

The fabric is much more supple than other hardshell fabrics which make it more comfortable to wear, and it doesn't rustle like other fabrics either.

Weight-wise it comes out heavier than the lighter weight eVent shells - so there could be a weight penalty against some alternatives.

Feature-wise the Montane Further Faster NeoShell  jacket has all the usual refinements such as exceptional hood, two high mounted hand pockets and a YKK zip backed by an internal drain channel. All with Montane build quality.
