Montane Jackets, Trousers, Shorts, Backpacks And More
Montane® is a UK based company and is best know for their lightweight and breathable clothing.
Montane believe that for all outdoor situations, the indispensable prerequisite of comfortable clothing is to avoid the weather entering your clothing, and at the same time allow your sweat and surplus body heat to escape easily.
Also, by reducing weight and pack size of all Montane clothing as low as possible, your outdoor experience is further enhanced. With less energy wasted carrying your clothing you have more space available for other essential items like food or equipment.
Montane produce a range of clothing for men and women, including jackets, trousers, shorts and t-shirts. Montane also produce a range of backpacks, sleeping bags and accessories (i.e. gloves, gaiters and headgear). The way they categorize their clothing is a bit different to other companies as follows:
- Next to Skin;
- Softshell & Fleece;
- Down & Insulation;
- MONTANE® Tees.
