About this deal

Less costly competitors are cheaper for a reason – they don’t match the specs, or promise Montane make. With a 40 denier face fabric combined with a Gore-Tex Paclite® Plus membrane this XT Jacket is a beefed up version of the Pac Plus ideal for more variable winter weather. If you prefer a jacket wil a long skirt that can be used as a waterproof barrier when you sit down, this isn’t the one for you. In addition, the XT is now fitted with two-way YKK Aquaguard pit zips, which the previous jacket lacked. These are voluntary guidelines used to demonstrate their commitment to good environmental, social, ethical, and food safety practices.

But you alson need think about other factors and, fortunately, Montane have put huge effort in this thought process. Montane Ambassador and ultra-running coach Howard Dracup took our latest waterproof jacket for a spin and his verdict is in! Using 100% recycled GORE-TEX PACLITE® PLUS technology, the Pac Plus XT SE Jacket balances low weight and packability whilst still being rich in mountain features such as a helmet hood, 3 pockets and pit zips which can be used for venting when working hard climbing, scrambling or mountain walking.layer laminate construction, the fabric can provide durability and next-to-skin comfort without the need for a separate lining. Durably waterproof, windproof and extremely breathable, this waterproof jacket offers protection when you need it most. Looking for a "one size fits all" jacket for low level walks in the Peak and mountain walking with possibly a bit of scrambling/climbing thrown in" went a recent post from forum user Gordonbp, asking about the relative merits of the Pac Plus XT jacket.

These have proved great for use with crampons, but they're not so rigid that they feel like overkill in summer. Now, if you want to take this a little further, you can use a small compression sack to further squeeze those dimensions down further. The main zip has an internal strip to help keep draughts out and to channel away any water that does find its way through, though I've noticed this strip tends to fold back on itself so I suspect it's not always reliably in position. But while they might do the job for ‘fast and light’ gram-counters, other outdoorsy types – particularly those who spend a lot of time in UK hills and mountains – might want a few more features.Montane knows a fair bit about mountain clothing, and this AW21 fast and lightweight hill-ready waterproof jacket sounds promising from the off.

You've just left the warmth of a friendly checkpoint and as you step out into the cold pouring rain, peer into the darkness and contemplate the terrain ahead, you realise you have 40 miles left until the finish line. At 395g in my size L review jacket (Montane say 375g, size not given) this counts as a light-midweight shell. This wasn’t a problem for the 40 Denier Gore Tex material as it withstood quite a few slips and scuffs on the way up. Not only are the zips a bit on the small side (I can’t squeeze a laminated map into them), there is also a mesh lining and they open into the body of the jacket.We use marketing, analytical and functional cookies as well as similar technologies to give you the best experience.

It's quite a steep climb out of the valley up to the tarn and I was very grateful for the new pit zips on the Pac Plus XT. A fully adjustable hood and weather resistant pockets make this ideal for any mountain activity where packability is vital. The arms are cut so reaching overhead isn’t an issue, and the hand pockets are cut high enough to mainly avoid a rucksack hip belt or climbing harness.
