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).

    Great running vest

    Ran a few ultra marathons with this, durable, no bounce, easy access overall pretty perfect. One thing that I do have an issue with is the opening system. It is really hard to open when running and especially to close up when running. Another thing would be the vest closure. Velcro works great its just the sterum straps can sometimes come off. I have lost the elastic straps because they have fallen off and have replaced them with elastic that I have threaded through. When they do stay on they are really comfortable and work great. The zips have also started sieze up and become hard to open.

    Overall great vest and great design. In my opinion way better than salomon vests and other competitors. I just think there could be some refinement in some areas.

    Great piece of kit

    Great bit of kit.....bought for my first ultra - Comfortable for all the race no bounce or rubbing - more than enough storage for single day race and my training runs.
