Montane Minimus Test

I was recently sent a great jacket from Montane. Its another in the family of the Kyrpton Jacket, which I had a sample of  but made from Pertex Shield. This is a waterproof and breathable taped seam jacket and weighs only 227gms. As such it makes it suitable for Mountain Marathons such as the OMM, LAMM etc. It small enough and light enough to stuff into a pack or on back of harness for the windy and wet days when you get caught out on the hill or crag. The hood is excellent is takes a helmet easily and the closure keeps out the elements. The styling is great with a vivid green and contract red zip, available in other colours. Its minimalistic as the name suggests and sports only one very well thought out pocket with compass/key D ring attachment. The cuffs are velcro closed to keep out the wet stuff. Reflective patches will be useful for the night user. Its another "must have" jacket from Montane. Look out for it in my pictures of my adventures...
