- Montane FeatherLite Velo Jacket – anyone got one?
Love mine. Had it years now, the sleeves are holed now from crashes and stuff, but they’re more robust than you’d imagine.Posted 4 years ago
Very light and packs down to the size of an apple, so no excuse not to have out with you.
Doesn’t have taped seams so only shower proof but if regularly re-proofed it’s pretty good at keeping water out.
I would buy another one without hesitation.RealManMember
I’m pretty sure I’ve got one, used it quite a lot, arms are a bit flappy for my liking, and the neck quite tight, and not as waterproof as I’d like, but it packs down well and does what you’d expect. No problems from the zip. Think I’ve got a slightly different version to that one as mine has a flap over the zip.Posted 4 years agofailedengineerMember
I’ve got one which I use mainly for running, but now and then on the bike in a shower. Can’t really fault it for what it’s designed for – it’s not a full-on waterproof, but then again, it breathes really well so it’s near as damnit as good as one. IMHO of course.Posted 4 years agoRealManMember
Just have a quick glance at their website, this looks pretty good. Won’t pack as small, but looks more waterproof and a few extra features. Twice the price though.Posted 4 years ago
Ended up getting the Montane singletrack in the end reduced from merlin.
Really please with it (worn once today). Nice and lightweight perfect as a windbreak for the spring/summer/autum commute. better for me than thefetaherlite due to the front pocket for locker keys/building keypass.
Means the Gore fusion can get a much needed re-proofing ready for the winter.
hope the zip lasts on the singletrack, I can probably see why it goes as it is a pretty lightweight/flexible zip, but this aids in its “packability”.
