The Litespeed is versatile wind shell, light enough to take everywhere providing protection from the elements. The jacket has a nice fit and is well suited to a range of activities such as trail running and fast packing to climbing and alpine pursuits.
Tried and tested in environments across the world, the classic Litespeed Jacket is back. Now with 100% recycled nylon PERTEX® QUANTUM ECO fabric and as versatile as ever, the Litespeed Jacket is super light and packable, perfect for providing breathable wind protection for almost any fast paced mountain activity.
Montane's Litespeed Jackett is a lightweight windshell that provides good levels of weather protection. This version sees the use of Pertex Quantum Eco which is a 100% recycled nylon outer with a DWR treatment that is capable of repelling a light shower. The low weight and pack size remain which is great for any fast and light enthusiasts.
The jacket has an elasticated hood with a wire stiffened peak, designed for under helmet use which means it's much more usable for most day-to-day activities where helmets are not required. The hem is adjustable and there are two zippered hand pockets which are rare features on wind shells trying to minimise weight. Admittedly there are lighter wind jackets out there but these additional features do make is more practical.
