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.

Icarus Flight Jacket
With durable 'hard-face' Pontetorto Tecnostretch in the main body and boosted thermal benefits from Polartec Alpha Direct in the front chest and over the upper arms, the Alpha Balance Jacket is ideal for moving fast in alpine conditions.
HOW IT WORKS
Polartec® Alpha® is a highly compressible fabric, easily layering with other materials and storable in small spaces. A stable core of lofted knit fibers prevents fiber migration to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering. By keeping moisture vapor moving freely through the fabric it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times. This reduces discomfort from saturation and prevents it from turning into a sponge. Additional durable water repellency in the outer woven layers give Polartec® Alpha® the trusted ability to perform in the most challenging of environments.
For 25 years, Montane has striven to create the msot innovative 'cutting edge' outdoor clothing and equipment in the world. Out history is crammed full of innovation in the workshop, extreme expeditions to the most inhospitable corners of the planet, extraordinary athletes that push the boundaries of possiblilty and well established partnership with the world's most brutal endurance events. Combined, these elements tell our story - who we are, why we exist. Further. Faster.
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.
