Montane's Icarus Lite Insulated Jacket is a great light-weight jacket to stuff in your pack year round for when you need a boost of warmth. With the new Primaloft ThermoPlume insulation this jacket performs well in cold, wet conditions when staying warm is vital. It has the equivalent warmth of 550 Fill Power Down but all the benefits of synthetic performance in wet conditions which see down jackets struggle.

The Icarus Lite uses elasticated cuffs, hood and hem to save weight and keep the cost down. The lack of an adjustable hem or hood is not an issue with this jacket as it has a tailored fit with outdoor activities in mind. A number of additional little features like the storm flap, microfleece chinguard make this a go to jacket, especially for changeable conditions. It's slightly odd the jacket doesn't come with a stuff sack or pack into a pocket as is the norm for jackets of this ilk but it still packs down small.

It was futile trying to resist buying this stunning jacket. Especially at a great price in a recent sale because I was looking to replace my main insulated outer layer which, is also a Montane garment originally bought in the mid to late 1990’s. This is purely for backpacking purposes, when there may be a really cold wind on the ‘tops’ or after pitching wild at higher altitudes in the UK. To say that I am pleased with my purchase is a gross understatement and it was an absolute bargain, particularly at the price I actually paid. The fit is absolutely perfect with all the features I would ever wish for and for backpacking purposes I much prefer an uncomplicated design and I'm not at all keen on having numerous adjustments to hood, hem and sleeves to contend with. The pockets are positioned to allow for a rucksack hip belt and can easily accommodate the also excellent Super Prism gloves and Prism hat (as a really compact lightweight alternative option to wearing the hood all the time) and my hands if I wish. This jacket, despite being so light in weight, is superbly designed, constructed and effective and in my opinion still offers good value for money even at its full price. Together with the Super Prism gloves and Prism hat, the best addition to my clothing kit for a very long time!
