Montane Featherlite gilet? Will pack down really small. I’ve got a the jacket version and I can fit that in the pocket of my jeans/short no problem.Posted 5 years ago
Bought one from lidl in the spring and on mornings like today its been perfect. On the way home if I don’t wear it, its going to be difficult to squeeze into my bag.Posted 5 years ago
So I need the worlds best gilet that rolls up into nothing please.
It doesn’t need any kind of waterproofing.hp_sourceMember
I’m using one of these…
used plenty, washed plenty… nice fit on me anyway, and good value, rolls up into little pocket on the back. Not so sure on the ‘showerproof’ claim, would probably keep out misty drizzle for a short while….Posted 5 years agoeasygirlSubscriber

ive literally just bought a altura etape gilet – its in my hands as we speak 🙂
its really really lightweight, its classed as windproof (which was all im after) but its actually under the tap test beading water, so guessing its showeproof too
it has a full mesh back, and the cut is more MTB specific in my eyes, as it doesnt have a long tail at the back….
i think its quite a good shout at £30, i usually go with gore but cant see the point in paying double and then some for virtually something the same (the gore looks better and slightly lighter)
i had the choice of the altura etape or endura lazer
the lazer put me off as the collar is very high, would annoy me being upto my chin all the time rubbing, also the tail is very long and flappy, the mesh back wasnt quite as much meshing as the altura one either…
dunno how the altura performs but i expect given the good reviews on wiggle it will take the windchill away, which is what i want it for!Posted 5 years ago
