Montane is a company owned and run by people with a passion for outdoor performance sports in challenging and inspiring places. Whether running or biking, hiking or climbing the characteristics required from performance clothing are the same. By reducing weight and pack size of all Montane clothing to the lowest achievable levels, the outdoor experience is further enhanced. Less energy is wasted carrying your clothing and more space is available for other essential items like food or equipment. In all active-use outdoor situations the essential requirement of comfortable clothing is to prevent the weather entering your clothing, and at the same time allow your sweat and excess body heat to easily escape.
