UOG TOP PICK - Montane's Spine Jacket - Gore-Tex Active Shell in a very lightweight package - We've singled out Montane's Spine Jacket as one of our top recommendations because it's utilises the highest breathability Gore-Tex Active shell and a robust 30D outer fabric yet remains very lightweight. It achieves this by dropping features you may not need (it only has a single pocket) yet includes key ones for high activity (such as pit zips). This makes it ideal for fast moving activities such as running and mountain marathons.

The Spine Jacket is a lightweight, highly breathable and waterproof Gore-Tex Active Shell, designed for high aerobic trail activities. 

Montane says:

Using GORE-TEX® ACTIVE SHELL 30D, the Spine Jacket offers weather protection for high output trail activities, and has been developed with minimalist design features to reduce weight and enhance packability.

Montane's Spine Gore-Tex Waterproof Jacket is part of the VIA Trail Series

Montane's Spine Gore-Tex Waterproof Jacket is ideal for high aerobic activities from alpine trail running to mountain biking. This is due to it's lightweight fabric, Gore-Tex waterproofing and of course it's highly breathable membrane. It's about half the thickness of a classic Gore so it's not as durable as a pro shell but it is a lot lighter and more breathable than both the Pro shells and the Surge Jacket.

In terms of features it's been kept pretty simple to keep the weight down. There's a small chest pocket (kept small to avoid your phone or GPS from jumping around when running) with a small hole on the inside to put headphones through. The hood has an elasticated back with a slightly stiffened peak and two adjustable front cords Simple but a good fit.

As it's part of the VIA series it has a slimmer 'trail' fit as you won't tend to wear many layers underneath, instead fitting reasonably close over a base layer.
