The Montane Minimus Jacket is a great example of a lightweight waterproof jacket. The fabric performs very well and offers a good ratio of waterproofing and breathability. It has a well designed feature set that you tend to only find on heavier jackets. An extremely lightweight jacket that will keep you comfortable and dry while out on the trails.

Montane says:

Revolutionary combination of performance, weight and breathability for fast paced mountain activities. Constructed from ultralight PERTEX® SHIELD, which offers full waterproof protection with the highest levels of breathability for the ultimate balance of weight and performance.

This updated version of the popular Montane's Minimus Jacket has seen a few tweaks to improve the overall style and functionality of the jacket. Not only have they managed to make it cheaper for what was already considered a reasonable price, it's now even lighter than before at only 188g (medium size). To get this they have compromised a little with the fabric, now using Pertex Shield instead of Pertex Shield+ which only affects the breathability slightly taking it to 20,000 instead of 25,000 g/m2/24hrs but it's waterproofing has stayed the same.

The style lines and trim have also been updated but they have kept it's key features such as the cord adjuster round the head/hood - so the hood will follow your head when you turn it. It can now stuff away into it's own chest pocket instead of a separate storage sack which is better as you don't have to worry about loosing it. 

Overall it still stands as one of our lightest waterproof jackets with good waterproofing and breathability characteristics.

Initially waterproof in my opinion and very light and packable, but after a few years of light use the inner membrane is peeling off in several places, which will definitely be leak points. Not really acceptable at this price point and not really sustainable to have to replace a plastic based item every few years.

poor design

I have used that jacket occasionally only when cycling during rain, internal membrane is separating from outer layer is what makes this jacket useless. This is not what you would expect from rain jacket with little use for that price. Not happy.
