PSA: Clearance sale of lots of outdoor stuff
The Krypton is basically a Pertex microlight jacket with a thin fleecey lining. They’re excellent. The only very minor issue is that they’re not stretchy but they’re still a great jacket
BTW it’s not waterpoof but will easily cop in drizzle or light showers and dry quickly.Posted 4 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Krypton is NOT waterproof – it is Pertex outer.Posted 4 years ago
Having said that, it has been the best jacket I have ever owned. Warm (enough), water resistant (enough), breathable (very), windproof (completely). Our staff had them and wore and wore and wore, then ordered another set etc etc…
They come up small.
Hike Lite is closing down so they are flogging all their stock off cheap cheap.
They don’t have all sizes as this is a stock clearance but there are lots of bargains to be had if you have a good look.
Montane Krypton £30 Size S, M & L
Montane Prism Vest £30 Sizes S & XL
Mountain Equipment Arrow Jacket £35 Sizes M & XL

It is snug fit, it is long in arms and body. It is not tiny.Posted 4 years ago
I usually take an Large in every top going, and have a Large montane waterproof to bike in. But all my other Montane tops (I have a few… 😉 ) are XL.
Just don’t compare with Patagonia, who do the ‘American’ size – I take a medium…
Montane stuff’s tiny. Unless you’ve tried it on someplace and are happy with the sizing, I’d be wary of buying on line, especially from a closing down sale.
That’s not 100% true. Their products do vary in fit – active mountain (slim fitting), classic mountain (looser) & high mountain (very loose to over layer).Posted 4 years ago
Also any smock will be a looser fit than the jacket variant of the same item as it has to go over the head and widest part of the shoulders, whereas a jacket can be a slimmer fit as it just wraps around you.cloudnineSubscriber
Thanks Op.. montane kryptonite jacket and sportswool tshirt arrived this morning. Love montane stuff as it seems to fit me really well. Jacket will replace the stw issue d2b jacket from last year. Wish is been a bit quicker and got a few other bits as they were a great price.Posted 4 years agodebaserSubscriber
ooft, thanks for the PSA ElShalimo, although it was an expensive one…
An Easton Hat Trick 2p tent arrived this morning.
Have been looking for a bigger/lighter backpacking tent for a while and an ‘all season’ 2 person tent that weighs only 2 kilos is verging on ridiculous. Thought the Easton tents looked ace and had very good reviews but I could never have justified one at full price so they had dropped off the shortlist. At half price however 😀
From a quick look in the bag, it looks like a very well sorted bit of kit. Nice attention to detail and the carbon poles/ aluminium
vampire killing stakespegs are incredibly light.
Shame to see Hike Lite close as I had used them in the past and they’d been great.
Will post up a proper review if I get it field tested while they are still available.Posted 4 years ago
