Hi All

Again, just noticed this on Outdoorsmagic:

Interestingly they're quoting 138 grams now instead of 143.

I am very seriously considering buying the Montane Minimus smock. It looks ideal for long distance/ultra runs and light weight backpacking. My only concern is that I don't know if I can get away with a smock vs a full zip, and the lack of a hood peak. I know I could get both of these things with the Montane Minimus Jacket, but then I am gaining 100g or so. Decisions, decisions.

I'm still in the process of testing this so I can't provide a full review just yet. It's very light - weighs 5oz. per my scale. Pertex feels good against the skin and works really well as a wind breaker.

However, I do have some opinions about it's breathability especially when actively hiking or biking. I haven't tested how waterproof it is yet since we don't get much rain here in SoCal.

One thing to note, when purchasing this, I would suggest going a plus size larger. I have the large and it's a tight fit...meaning it would be difficult to wear on top of a puffy.
