The Montane Fireball Lite is a highly breathable jacket designed for those wanting to have a layer for moving fast or more intense activities, but can also perfectly act as a light and warm midlayer. 

Montane says: 

Lightweight, warm and breathable, the Fireball Lite Hoodie is filled with recycled Active Eco insulation to provide excellent core body warmth. The air permeable outer shell and lining provide stretch and help regulate temperature during active use. Coupled with stretch Thermo Grid side and underarm panels, the unique combination of materials is optimised to handle a range of conditions and activities as a mid or outer layer.

Our Verdict

The Lite version of Montane's classic Fireball, offers a jacket that is perfect for intense activities where you plan to be constantly on the move, but then still provides a good level of warmth when you need to stop. The Fireball Lite is an ideal midlayer for winter activities, but also a reliable outer-layer for climbing, running, fast hikes, or as something just to pull on when the temperature drops. 

The Fireball Lite fits closely to provide a good amount of warmth with the recycled Active Eco insulation, but the stretch fabric provides a lot of freedom of movement which I found perfect while bouldering in Autumn and early winter. The breathability of the outer fabric is excellent and there was a lot of airflow preventing any build-up of unwanted sweat particularly under the arms where with the Thermo Grid fabric helps wick away the moisture. This breathability works well for those looking for a lightweight thermal layer for winter running or activties of a high intensity, where reducing moisture build up and getting airflow is essential. 

Features wise Montane have kept it simple with two front pockets and simple elastic adjustment tabs at the bottom, in order to keep the weight down. The hood is also very simple with no adjustment, but fits well with a fairly close fit and no real need for adjustment. There are no unneccessary frills to the jacket it is just a lightweight and highly efficient jacket that is designed to be exeptional at its purpose.
