Montane Fireball Jacket
"This is such a versatile and comfortable layer. It stretches and moves freely, with a soft cuff and close-fitting hood. I was suspicious it would be too warm when on the move, even in cool & blustery conditions, but enough air can come through the outer layer to mitigate over-heating. As soon as I put a full windproof over the top, there's enough loft in the Primaloft insulation for it to act as a light duvet jacket during short stops. Like your baselayer, you put it on and you keep it on. How simple can it get?"
Montane Fleet Jacket
"I use this shell layered over a Fireball Jacket. It felt trim - perfectly tailored for me, with ease of movement, a simple pocket array that will suit many. A cuff cinch with enough of a flare to make room for a small glove gauntlet. The DWR is remarkable: shedding droplets of water like liquid mercury, it can’t take hold on the surface of the jacket. Though over time I will need to keep reproofing it regularly to maintain this performance, this is the best DWR I've ever seen."
