The 2016 Volt Jacket is a warm and comfortable fleece with stretch fleece in the side and underarms for better flexibility and breathability.
The Volt Jacket was designed with the full 12 months of the year in mind. It is equally comfortable to wear whilst working hard high in the French Alps as it is taking it easy by a sunlit fjord in Greenland.

We all have our favourite fleece that we just love to take on every trip. The one that's perfect for wearing around the crag, hiking in the mountains or just to the pub after a long day on the hills. Well Montane's Volt Jacket has been that particular fleece for myself and for a lot of others. And now they have updated it with Stretch fleece panels on the sides and underarms.
This is a good idea as it improves the fit and adds extra flexibility and breathability to the jacket. You still get a handy zip chest pocket and two large mesh lined hand warmer pockets which to me is essential. And of course it still has the honeycomb grid pattern which gives it a technical look that's very unique and attractive. The only small downside is that it has gotten a little heavier compared to the previous version.
