-- Building on an already strong line up of ultralightweight technical outerwear, UK-based Montane is set to release the Minimus Smock—a 5-ounce shell—for Spring Summer 2013. Made for fast and light aficionados, this is the ideal garment for which Pertex Shield + was developed. Waterproof, exceptionally breathable, and astonishingly light, the Smock has a micro pack size that will go unnoticed when not in use.
The Minimus Smock boasts a 25,000 MVTR with a 20,000mm hydrostatic head. Microtaped seams are also in use throughout to increase breathable surface area. With each ounce coming at a premium, the Minimus smock was designed as a pullover style garment with a half-length YKK Aqua Guard zip and a front bib pocket.
The Smock is an extension of the popular Minimus Jacket, which has won numerous awards from European media outlets such as Trail Magazine, Outdoor Photography Magazine, and Outdoor Magazine. The Minimus Smock (MSRP $200) will be available at specialty outdoor retailers across the USA and Canada.
