Montane calls it “the world's lightest weight fully waterproof and breathable outdoor shirt”. Is it really a shirt? At a claimed weight of just 6 ounces (size large), the Montane 180 is similar to the Patagonia Specter Pullover (at 6.5 ounces, size medium), and a close contender for the coveted title of lightest woven fabric hooded rain jacket. Both jackets use a polyurethane-only waterproof/breathable membrane, and have similar features.
In our upcoming review of the Montane 180 I will take a hard look at its features and performance compared to the Patagonia Specter Pullover that we recently reviewed. How do they compare for performance, weight, and value?
