The Axis Alpha jacket is a superb insulation jacket - we love that Montane have put a breathable insulation where you are likely to sweat the most, and down on the front/core where you need insulation more. 

Montane says

The Axis Alpha Jacket is the ultimate piece of protective clothing for fastpaced activity in cold and changeable conditions. Based on cold chamber lab research and extensively athlete-tested, this jacket has been engineered with body-mapped fabric and insulation technologies from GORE-TEX INFINIUM™, PERTEX AIR and POLARTEC® ALPHA® DIRECT to balance protection from the elements with efficient heat and moisture management, keeping you comfortable when working hard in the elements.

Our Verdict

Montane's Axis Alpha Down Jacket is a real hybrid, there are down chambers on the front, sides and partially down the arms, elsewhere the insulation is Pertex Air, a supremely breathable insulation, and its all wrapped in Goretex Infinium which is windproof, highly breathable and highly water resistant. It has a technical hood with full adjustment, elasticated wrists and a drawcord hem.

We really like it because Montane have put the right insulation in the right places, less warmth where sweat could be generated.
