Montane's Featherite Pro Pull-On is a super packable alpine windproof with a zip away hood. Exceptionally tough for such a lightweight piece.
With a full set of technical features and using a unique combination of tough, super light 20 Denier PERTEX® Quantum CS-10 fabric in the main body and breathable HYPERVENT panels across the back and under the arms, the Featherlite Pro Pull-On protects from the wind whilst offering breathable comfort in key areas.
Montane's Featherlite Pro Pull-On provides remarkable protection for a garment this lightweight. It's made from both Pertex Quantum and Hypervent panels, to give you a tough, water resistant, highly breathable jacket. It's the kind of Jacket you'd put on during a nice day in the mountains when a cold wind starts to blow and its too cold without it.
The fabric obviously won't be as tough as a softshell and the fabric can sound a little crinkly at times, but with a jacket this lightweight there's always going to be small compromises. The great thing about such lightweight fabric is that the jacket can be packed down super small into it's own chest pocket which can then be clipped to a climbing harness or pack.
It features a helmet compatible hood with a wired peak - the hood can be rolled away and zipped into it's own neck collar. I like that the zip has a top and bottom pull so you can vent from the bottom of the zip without allowing the fabric to flap about in the wind.
