Montane's Atomic Jacket provides waterproof protection in a well designed jacket with technical hood and durable face fabric.
Montane says: Designed to be a lightweight, versatile, multi sport mountain rain shell, the Atomic has become a classic waterproof MONTANE style.
Featuring the remarkable PERTEX Shield fabric with dry touch which is not only waterproof, windproof and breathable, it also has a hardwearing nylon face with a durable water repellent finish that will keep on performing no matter what the activity.

Montane's 2015 Atomic Jacket is an accomplished style in a proven fabric. There are other fabrics which are more breathable than the Pertex Shield used in the Atomic but they are more expensive items. With the Atomic you get comparable waterproof protection with a slight compromise on breathability and a harder wearing fabric than some of the superlight shells.
If your shell is going to be in your pack most of the time then this is a good area of compromise because design wise the Atomic has all the features required - such as a technical hood which can move with you, two large high set pockets and velcro adjustable cuffs.
