Montane Minimus Jacket Review


The Montane Minimus Jacket is a waterproof, ultra-lightweight jacket for trail runners. However, its lack of handwarmer pockets is a major flaw in a jacket used as an outer shell. It is also very limited in the number of pockets it can accommodate, only one of which doubles as a hand pocket. Additional features like pit zips would improve ventilation and help prevent the jacket from feeling too hot.

Montane Minimus Jacket is marketed primarily to trail runners.

The Montane Minimus Jacket is a waterproof, packable jacket marketed primarily to trail runners. This jacket features a 3-layer construction that offers excellent breathability and waterproof performance.

While the Minimus is marketed primarily to trail runners, it can also be worn by walkers and hikers. The lightweight fabric of the jacket is very breathable, and it can double as a wind shirt and rain jacket. It weighs only 9.2 oz in men’s XL. It is also ideal for hill walking or hiking, with the technical features of a full-featured rain jacket.

The Minimus is available in a variety of styles. While most jackets are marketed to trail runners, some options are for runners looking for a less expensive jacket. These include a lightweight half-zip smock, a 2.5-layer shell, and a lightweight, superlight pull-on version.
