PATTERNING AND DESIGN
I'm normally a Montane fan, but this had didn't do it for me.
The main issue is the windproof membrane - boy is it noisy when the earflaps are down. I don't go to the hills to listen to strange squeaks and creaks.
Secondly, though I have a pretty average-sized head, it felt uncomfortably tight. It might ease, but at this price it's a bit of a risk.
Nicely designed and made, but the drawbacks were too much for me. Returned to vendor.
Does what it says!
I have tested it when storm Christoph was around - and it passed the test :)
