Light, packable and warm, the Future Lite is a versatile down jacket suited to cooler conditions or ideal as an insulating layer. A well fitted design for active pursuits.
Minimalist styling without comprising vital features, designed for fast paced activities where packability and low weight are critical. A nano baffle construction delivers a sleek, anatomical fit ideal for layering or as a stand-alone item in warmer conditions.
Montane's Womens Future Lite Down Hoodie is an ideal layering piece with low bulk and great packability. The jacket contains 115g of hydrophobic down and has a 15D outer fabric so it is great for throwing in a pack until it's needed. A slightly shorter cut in the torso means that it is well suited to be used as a layer over being a stand alone jacket. Combine this with simple elasticated cuffs and hood reduce weight and bulk while the use of micro baffles up the sides and down the arms help regulate temperature and aid mobility.
This is great for being active while needing a good level of insulation. It is not as lightweight as I would have expected and I'm not sure what accounts for the weight. It is comfortable and very practical for mountain activities though.
