Montane Atomic (2014)

£110.00

If you want low weight and minimal cost then the £110 Montane Atomic, which tips the scales at just 328g (size L), is a winner. The fabric is Pertex Shield, which – while it can’t boast the lab test results for breathability of jackets twice its price – does offer more than most around the £100 mark. It’s a 2.5-layer ...

Montane Alpine Endurance (2013)

£300.00

The Montane Alpine Endurance is designed for alpine-style mountaineering, where a climber is belaying his mate one minute and then taking the lead. It is made from a good version of eVent, so it has proven waterproofness and breathability performance, but it’s also sturdy enough not to buckle in a breeze or tear when rubbing shoulders with rock. The length ...

Montane Minimus (2013)

£100.00

At 161g (size L) the Montane Minimus trousers are the lightest in our test – and that weight makes them ideal for carrying in your pack, while the performance means that when you do put them on you’ll remain comfortable. The fabric is an extremely thin 2.5-layer material with good breathability, but it will still feel clammier than higher-priced trousers ...

Montane Super-Fly (2013)

£270.00

At 400g, it’s a jacket you’ll want to wear more than carry, but the fabric is soft and quiet, totally waterproof and very breathable. There’s a useful array of pockets with waterproof zips, including an easily accessible map pocket on the chest and an internal security pocket. The arms are articulated for easy movement and the Velcro cuffs are soft ...

Montane Air (2013)

£250.00

The Montane Air has been a popular ‘fast and light’ waterproof for a few years in Trail reviews, and it remains a benchmark product. It’s built around a 3-layer eVent fabric, which provides well-proven performance in terms of moisture control as well as durability. The fabric does feel a little stiffer than some other fabrics though. The Air weighs just ...

Montane Atomic (2013)

£110.00

One of Montane’s stable of thoroughbred jackets, the Atomic is a well-proven performer. It is made from 2.5-layer Pertex Shield, so you tend to notice any condensation that forms on the inside a little more easily than jackets with a mesh lining or 3-layer jackets. But the benefits are low weight and small packed size, which make this ideal for ...

Montane Venture (2012)

£230.00

The 3-layer eVENT fabric is light yet soft and comfortable, and it’s extremely breathable. It’s also reinforced at the shoulders. It has an excellent hood: deep and super-adjustable with a decent wired peak. And this combines with a high, soft collar. The pockets are a good size and well-positioned, and the cuffs are spot-on, with Velcro adjustment and elastic. The ...

Montane Minimus (2012)

£100.00

‘The World’s lightest and most breathable waterproof mountain pants’ are how Montane describes Minimus overtrousers. They certainly are light at just 121g (men’s L) and as they pack down into their fist-sized stuffsack with ease you can also stash them in your rucksack and forget you are even carrying them. The fabric is extremely thin, meaning they are not restrictive; ...

Montane Superfly (2012)

£270.00

The Montane Superfly is the only jacket on test to use eVent waterproof fabric, which has a well-proven high level of waterproofness and breathability, although some people find it needs to be looked after more carefully to maintain its performance. Highly breathable, it is great for moving fast through the mountains, and at 442g (size UK12) it is light given ...

Montane Air (2012)

£250.00

The Montane Air is made from 3-layer eVent fabric, which is a well-proven favourite among hillwalkers and it feels far more durable than the Gore-Tex Active Shell fabric for example but is also stiffer and therefore a little less comfortable. The Air weighs in at a very respectable 317g (men’s size L) due to its minimalist design, as there is ...

Montane Atomic (2012)

£100.00

The Montane Atomic has been around for some years, but it is now made from Pertex Shield, a very thin and lightweight laminated fabric with a print finish on the inside. This jacket packs down small and is very light, but with the drawback of not being quite so comfy as one using 3-layer fabric such as the eVent used ...

Montane Venture 2011

£220.00

The Montane Venture has been a popular multi-activity and hillwalking jacket for many years. It is a relatively stripped-down design, which means it is lightweight at 452g (men’s L). The low weight is due in part to this jacket only having two chest pockets, rather than three or more. Also it is quite short compared to others, and all this ...

Montane eVent Superfly Trousers 2011

£130.00

The mid-priced Montane eVent Superfly Trousers strike a fine balance between technicality and simplicity. They may lack features such as belt loops, pockets and a fly zip, but they do have reinforced ankles, backside and knees, a drawstring at the ankle for volume adjustment, and water-resistant zips. They feel like trousers that have had some serious thought over the essential ...

Montane Minimus Jacket 2011

£120.00

Weighing in at just 220g (men’s L) and packing down into its own apple-sized stuffsack makes the Montane Minimus Jacket a true ultralight option. Much of the weight saving comes from the fabric, which is Pertex Shield, and in the lab it gives top-end breathability and waterproof performance figures. And it does all that for an incredible £120, making it ...

Montane Minimus

£120.00

An incredibly lightweight waterproof, weighing in at a cool 180g (size 12). The Pertex Shield fabric is very light and easy to move in, although it does feel a little on the flimsy side and is fairly noisy, too. It will withstand a good beating from the rain, though, and its waterproofness is helped by a decent storm flap hidden ...

Montane Venture

£120.00

A great pair of hard-wearing trousers, with excellent waterproofing and breathability as afforded by a 3-layer eVENT membrane. The face-fabric is particularly rugged with large reinforced sections around the ankle area to protect against rubbing and further reinforcement around the articulated knees and backside. The trousers have been built with quite a fitted shape that really helps to keep rustling ...

Montane Venture

The Venture stands out from most of others, not only because of its technical performance, but because it is lightweight and very packable too. It’s a great looking jacket, made from lightweight yet reassuringly durable fabric. There’s a high collar to bury your face into when the weather turns nasty, with a soft fleece lining under the chin. And most ...

Montane Atomic DT Stretch 2010

£150.00

This is the stretch version of the Montane Atomic DT 2.0 multi-activity jacket. You do pay extra for having stretch material, but the benefit is a closer fit that does not restrict movement too much and remains comfortable. The fabric is Entrant, which is a well-proven waterproof and breathable fabric. The design is close-fitting and short with a slight scoop ...

Montane Atomic DT 2.0 2010

£120.00

The use of Entrant fabric keeps the price of the Montane Atomic DT 2.0 down, yet it still offers very good waterproof and breathable performance. The jacket is a typically performance-orientated design from Montane, so you get a relatively close and short style but it still maintains good freedom of movement. There are two chest pockets, and these can be ...

A very light jacket, the Atomic is cut quite short, making it suitable for summer use and high-energy activities, and it packs down easily in its own stuffsack. The Entrant DT Storm and Kudos nylon ripstop fabric is soft to the touch, although less breathable and more rustly than some. It is incredibly waterproof for its weight, though, with a ...

Incredibly lightweight, butcompromise a bit on breathability. They have some really useful features, including a knee-length zip and fully adjustable ankle cuff and calf. There are even two press studs at the hem so you can choose how tight you want them around your boots. This also acts like a kind of gaiter, preventing water getting in over the top ...
