KNOW WHAT YOU’RE BUYING

The table below is designed to help you understand where Montane products are made and what they are made from. Lower impact materials have a reduced environmental footprint and increased traceability via third party accreditations. For example recycled content, Responsible Down Standard certified down, and branded yarns like Tencel ™. Where a product uses a DWR you can easily see whether this uses potentially harmful chemistry (PFCs).

    I can't fault, I already had the VP5+, so it was a no brainer to get the 12+ when I needed a bigger pack size.

    Been through multiple hydration vests from many manufacturers, this is the best I've found, comfortable, no bounce, plenty of storage.
