The Montane Minimus Stretch Ultra Jacket is a supremely light and breathable trail running shell with a minimal pack size and excellent wet weather beating performance. 

Montane says:

Using a super breathable 20 Denier PERTEX® SHIELD 2.5 layer waterproof fabric combined with a minimalist feature set, the Minimus Stretch Ultra Jacket is lightweight and packable with added stretch to allow for an active, close fit. Perfect for running and endurance mountain activities.  

Our Verdict

Montane's Minimus Stretch Ultra Jacket is pretty much the new and improved Minimus Stretch Jacket. It's constructed using the same 2.5 Layer Pertex Shield fabric with stretch but has a more minimalist feature set, making it even lighter than before.

Although the features have been simplified, it still boasts technical tailoring around the arms that give you full, high reach without lifting the hem and exposing yourself to the elements, with articulated elbows that are shaped to move with your arms. Plus lots of other useful features.

The jacket now offers more ventilation options as you can open the main zip yet keep it loosely closed by using the popper on chest. Quite a handy new feature. You can also stuff the jacket into its own pocket to save space in your pack.

A superbly light jacket with good waterproofing and breathability characteristics, ideal for any activity where low weight and pack size is critical.
