Montane's Featherlite Shell Jacket has a high breathability characteristic, important if you will be wearing it for full days at a time. Full feature set includes a technical hood.
Montane says: Using a new hyper breathable eVent fabric, this super lightweight shell takes breathability and performance to a new level. Designed for spring / summer alpine climbing where weight is critical but performance cannot be compromised.
||||eVent Waterproof Fabrics use Direct Venting Technology - a proprietary and patented waterproof membrane allows millions of tiny pores to breathe at their full potential. Sweat vents directly to the outside of the fabric in one easy step. Click Logo to read more..|

Montane's Featherlite Shell Jacket is a highly accomplished piece of kit that achieves a really light weight yet is made from a high performing fabric especially as far as breathability is concerned. There are lighter weight shells out there but this one feels more durable and s backed by those exceptional breathability figures.
Breathability becomes important if you expect to be wearing a shell jacket all day - and its in those circumatances that this jacket will excel. Superlight shell jackets can suffer under rucksack straps so this one represents a good compromise between a superlightweight jacket and more durable but a lot heavier winter weight shell.
As you would expect from Montane the technical hood has excellent adjustment and can be cinched into your head so that it moves with you. Two large hand pockets, a hem drawcord and velcro cuffs complete the picture.
