Montane's Minimus Hybrid jacket combines leading edge insulation with an ultra-lightweight shell to provide a combined jacket ideal for cold and wet conditions.

Montane says:

Developed to provide high thermal insulation combined with stormproof protection. The Minimus Hybrid Jacket is one of the lightest garments in its category, delivering versatility and high breathability. Featuring the remarkable light weight PERTEX Shield + fabric as its outer shell, it can pack down into a rucksack during cold weather activities and can serve as both waterproof shell and/or thermal insulation when required.

Montane's Minimus Hybrid Jacket is an insulated waterproof shell. We advocate a layered system for the stuff we do outdoors, the downside to insulated shell jackets is that if its wet and warm you'll be too hot in it, and if its cold and dry you'll be compromising breathability and comfort by wearing a shell thats not necessary.

Leaving that aside though an insulated shell comes into its own during cold conditions when overheating isn't going to be a problem and donning an insulated shell when it starts to rain adds warmth at the same time. For us it has its place in environments such as Scandanavia or Scotland in winter - in the right environment there's a good weight saving for combining these two types of garment.

Warmth-wise the Minimus Hybrid jacket sits midway between Montane's Prism and Montane's Flux jackets. The hood is excellent and there are a range of features built in with Montane quality.
