All around gem
Let's see, this little beauty packs down to the size of my fist, is super light-weight and warm. It's also perfect for layering. I've used my MontBell for travel, hiking, snow sports, and just chilling, even though my wife doesn't really like how it looks, to sporty I guess. But I think it looks radical, and it's the coziest clothing item I own. I've taken this jacket to Iceland, New Zealand, Netherlands, Croatia, Switzerland and all over the western US. It sheds water, but isn't waterproof. All in all, this is the perfect layering jacket. Why buy a fleece when you could instead make the best purchase of your life and pick one of these lovelies up?
