The Light Shell Parka is a versatile softshell jacket with year-round functionality. The jacket combines comfort and durability with a hard wearing 40D fabric.

Montbell says

The Light Shell series was designed for versatility, having a wind and water resistant outer shell, combined with a lining material that is warm but doesn't store built up heat or moisture. The Light Shell series is versatile enough to perform year-round, as a middle layer during winter or and outer layer during spring and high elevation summer treks. The sides and cuffs have a stretchy material for improved mobility and the body features an athletic silhouette.

Our Verdict

Montbell's Light Shell Parka is a very comfortable item of clothing that has its place across the seasons either as an outer or mid-layer. The inner lining is CLIMAMESH, which is very soft, it is smooth against the skin and runs right through to the elasticated sleeve cuffs, including the hood and pockets making them very comfortable too. There is a good amount of stretch in the fabric so you don't feel restricted when active.

The mesh lining adds a small amount of warmth without being too warm or bulky. Despite no obvious DWR treatment, this jacket still provides a decent amount of weather protection. The small stuff sack is perfectly sized to keep this item small and compact when added to a daypack for later use.
