Montane's Minimus Jacket is a great example of a lightweight waterproof jacket. The fabric performs very well, it has a well designed hood and all the right features.
A true lightweight aficianado's waterproof shell. Superior protection from the Pertex Shield+ fabric, which has a 20,000mm waterproof rating and a very high 25,000 breathability rating. You will stay comfortable and dry while out on the trails.
Weighing in at 215g the Minimus is an ultra lightweight rain shell from the future. The fabric Pertex Shield delivers exceptional breathability levels and performance characteristics that you would normally find at the high end of extreme mountain shells.
Whilst designed to work hard during fast paced endurance activities in wet conditions the Minimus is equally at home as a high performance rain shell on a trip out in stormy weather and with a pack size the shape of an apple it will hardly be noticed when not in use.
A superbly light Montane jacket with good waterproofing and breathability characteristics - some good features retained from heavier jackets - such as the cord adjuster round the head/hood - so the hood will follow your head when you turn it.
Velcro cuffs chest pocket with keyring (will stop a keyring degrading the pocket material) chin fleece and drawcord hem. Uncompromising design - this jacket sets a new standard.
