Montane's 777 Pull-On is a waterproof shell at an amazingly low weight with impressive waterproof and breathability ratings with features kept to a minimum.

Montane says: Supremely lightweight, breathable and packable trail pull-on shell.

46g Pertex Shield+ fabric is one of the lightest weight 3 layer fabrics available. Combining a 7 denier 100% nylon face, 7 micron laminate film and 7 denier tricot backing, this fabric is waterproof with a 20,000mm hydrostaic head. It also has exceptional breathability, with an MVTR rating of 30,000g/m2/24hrs.

Montane's Minimus 777 Pull-On is part of the VIA Trail Series

Montane's Minimus 777 Pull-On is all about the fabric - it has an exceptional breathability performance combined with excellent Hydrostatic Head (waterproof rating). All Pertex Shield+ is not the same, and this version used by Montane has these exceptional characteristics at an amazingly low weight, and is three layer.

3-Layer fabrics are more durable than 2.5 layer because there is a full internal layer to protect the membrane from wear - 2.5 layer garments have a coating rather than fabric layer to do the same job - but its not as durable.

Having said all that this is a 140gram jacket, so durability is not its main feature and I wouldn't recommend this for backpacking where shoulder straps will rub the fabric - its more suited to mountain marathons where every gram is key and your rucksack is pretty small and light even when loaded.

In order to keep weight to a minimum features are also kept to a minimum with elasticated hem and cuffs, and a very simple hood, but there is a chest pocket, and a minimal width flap to cover the main zip.
