Montane's Mountain Star jacket is designed to wear during high levels of activity, when you need a technical wicking fabric to keep you comfortable. The jacket also provides moderate protection from the elements with a DWR coating to the fabric.
Designed as a highly versatile piece of outdoor clothing for spring and summer mountain adventures. The Mountain Star is light, packable and supremely functional. Whether on steep trail ascents or multi pitch rock climbing, the microporous AEROFLYTE fabric will provide weather resistance during cool conditions whilst also allowing body heat and perspiration to escape when working hard.

This Montane jacket is extremely thin, which is how it achieves breathability and extreme low weight.
So it delivers specific benefits akin to adding another thin T-Shirt layer to give a little more protection - unlike 'another T-Shirt layer' its a highly technical fabric that wicks superbly well to keep you comfortable, it has a water repellent finish to shrug of damp mist and its cut to deliver freedom of movement.
It doesn't provide much wind resistance so it won't replace a windshell.
