Montane’s renowned boast is that it stuffs to the dimensions of an apple. But there’s more to them than just packability. Taking Perseverance Mill’s standard for its water-resisting shell cover, it’s soft to touch and, in this case, boasts decent abrasion resistance on top of water repelling and windproofing. To the rear of the jacket, twin open gills just below the armpit provide venting. Unbeaten on weight, this is a pure emergency cover, but it remains a yielding weather cheater.

RATING: 9/10
