Spring Summer 2018 Highlights


Engineered for Endurance

Our story is one of cutting-edge innovation and intelligent design.  Of pioneering expeditions, extraordinary athletes, inhospitable places and the world’s most brutal and iconic endurance events.  For 25 years we have pushed the boundaries of where our lightweight clothing and equipment takes us.  It is who we are, what we are made of.  It is what defines us.  This is our story. #MYMONTANE

The importance of functionality in garments and packs does not stop at product design alone. Fabric technology is critical to producing the best products, Montane works with the world's leading fabric suppliers to engineer new cutting-edge materials that push the boundaries of what is possible with clothing, equipment and accessories in order to create the lightest, toughest and most functional products available on the market.

For over 21 years Montane has worked closely with serious mountain professionals working in hostile conditions across the globe as a proving ground for garment design. From the British Antarctic Survey to British Mountain Rescue Teams. Professionals who demand the toughest credentials from their clothing and equipment choose Montane.

Featherlite Smock Limited Edition

To celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we have re-created one of our most iconic pieces – the legendary 1999 Featherlite Smock. This original, genuinely versatile, multi sport windproof defined lightweight packability for mountain athletes, establishing a whole new category of outdoor clothing in the process. In the spirit of clothing and equipment innovation yet to come, and to recognise the tradition of pioneering, ground-breaking design that is imbued within Montane’s roots, we are producing a very special run of Limited Edition Featherlite Smocks.

Built to the original garment specifications, with classic Montane retro branding, each Smock comes with a branded stuff sac and is produced in the vintage Mango colour. Each Smock has a uniquely numbered size label (1 – 999) to ensure total uniqueness and that this timeless garment becomes a real collector’s piece.

Includes an exclusive 25th Anniversary t-shirt, made with organic cotton.

Re-imagined and re-invented from top to toe with elite athlete input and forged amongst the worlds most brutal endurance events. The new MONTANE VIA Trail Series range sets a new standard in premium performance off-road running.

From tough mountain shells such as the new Ultra Tour to fast and light baselayers like the new Fang and Claw covering both men's and women's ranges, our  Spring/Summer 18 range has something to get you moving Further. Faster.



VIA Trail Series Packs

From the featherweight trail running VIA Fang 5 Litre pack through to the ultimate mountain marathon endurance VIA Dragon 20 Litre pack, the full range of VIA packs have been refined and improved.

The VIA Trail Series packs are designed for speed on the trail and in the mountains. The Montane Freelight Chassis utilises a new lighter weight, more breathable CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air with the addition of POLYGIENE permanent odour control, a first for any trail running pack. Its stretch body fit remains unrivalled providing unique weight balance control, allowing you to wear, rather than carry your kit when moving fast over rough terrain.

The VIA Trail Series includes the Fang 5, Jaws 10, Razor 15 and Dragon 20 giving you plenty of options depending on your needs. The Fang 5 litre pack is primarily aimed at allowing you to go fast on the trail and in the mountains whereas the Jaws 10 litre capacity is perfect for ultra distance race events or long trail days. The capacity is stepped up again for the Razor 15 litre pack which provides optimal volume for carrying essential gear on longer trail missions and during ultra events and the largest of the range, the Dragon 20 litre pack is ideal for multi days in the mountains and on long distance trails.

All VIA packs have:

  • 2 x Montane SoftFlasks 500ml for fast, compressible hydration whilst on the move
  • Internal hydration bladder attachment point in vertical compartment with attachment points for tube on chassis
  • External bungee provides main pack body compression and additional storage with low profile adjustment
  • New pole attachment option for storage diagonally on the pack
