Prism Ultra Pull-On Review

Montane Ambassador Howard Dracup tells us “As much as I wanted to keep this one as a secret all to myself, here’s one of my new favourite pieces of kit – the Montane Men’s Prism Ultra Pull-On.

Alpine Spirit Review

The Montane Women’s Alpine Spirit Waterproof Jacket is a serious workhorse of a jacket. Built for uncompromising abuse and long, tough days, it is rugged and uncomplicated.

Pac Plus Review

Montane Ambassador Kat reflects on a year spent with her Montane Women’s Pac Plus Waterproof Jacket, putting it through its paces as she runs, climbs, and fastpacks around her home in Snowdownia National Park. For me, the Montane Women’s Pac Plus Waterproof Jacket is the perfect lightweight waterproof jacket. Its simple feature set and Gore-Tex Paclite membrane make it super packable whilst also ready to tackle the elements! I use it for everything from mountain running to climbing, forever keeping the wind and rain off me. The wide adjustable hood... Read More

Designed around the revolutionary FREELIGHT chassis, the Gecko allows efficient storage of all the essentials and nothing more. Ideal for training or chasing PB’s. ‘Best Value’ WHAT TRAIL RUNNING SAYS:   Testers were impressed that so many features were packed so cleverly into such a competitively priced pack, making it ideal for supported races and warmer weather runs, where a ginormous kit list isn’t warranted: “Tough and comfy, a workhorse of a...
