Montane's Atomic Jacket provides waterproof protection in a well designed jacket with technical hood and durable face fabric.

Montane says:

One of the most versatile waterproof styles in the Montane range. The Atomic Jacket features the remarkable lightweight and versatile PERTEX® Shield fabric with dry touch which offers an excellent balance of weather protection, breathability and durability. Updated with pit zips for increased breathability and improved fit and styling, the Atomic Jacket is a classic style for any mountain activity.

Montane's Atomic Jacket is an accomplished style in a proven fabric. There are other fabrics which are more breathable than the Pertex Shield used in the Atomic but they are more expensive items. With the Atomic you get comparable waterproof protection with a slight compromise on breathability and a harder wearing fabric than some of the superlight shells.

If your shell is going to be in your pack most of the time then this is a good area of compromise because design wise the Atomic has all the features required - such as a technical hood which can move with you, breathable pit zips, two large high set pockets and velcro adjustable cuffs.
