We've found the Lite-Speed to be the most useful of gear for pretty well any outdoor circumstances. Probably the most versatile piece of mountain clothing ever created. Wear on mild weather belays, cool autumn hikes; throw on whilst taking a drink stop; or use as an ultra-lightweight wind layer in the dead of mid-winter. Absurdly packable, you won't notice it in your rucksack.

  • Do not use fabric softeners or bleach.
  • Drip dry.
  • Your jacket may need occasional re-proofing to restore the DWR. MONTANE® recommends Nikwax TX Direct.

Best wind-proof around
Thursday, 4 July 2013  | 

Firstly, the service. Although not showing the black version here, Rose kindly agreed to order me one specially and it was here in no time. Superb service yet again! Now the jacket: having just spent a week wild camping in the Lakes in and around Borrowdale, this thing was never off my back. Apart from doing its job as a wind-proof/light shower-proof jacket that weighs nothing at all, it scrunches up into a stuff sack the size of an apple! Quite possibly the best piece of outdoor clothing I have purchased..and watch for the looks in the pub when you take it off, scrunch it up into a tiny ball and put it in your pocket!
