About Montane

Montane® has become synonymous with the lightweight and the breathable.

Their clothing designs are fit for purpose, constructed for the most demanding weather conditions in the world. They’ve been tested extensively in the rain and wind-swept British mountains, the Greenland Icecap, the hurricane winds in Patagonia and the Cold Climb classics on Scotland’s Ben Nevis. The techniques and innovative fabrics that they use are chosen to meet the highest standards of quality design and construction.

But the functionality of garments does not stop at clothing design. Over 10 years ago Montane were one of the first clothing brands in the world to recognise the true genius of eVent® fabric. With never before seen levels of breathability, eVent® fabrics allowed Montane® to help revolutionise mountaineering and rain shell performance.

In the Terra Pant range Montane® recognised that lightweight should not necessarily mean fragile, so they use a combination of Tactel that is hyper breathable yet lightweight and Cordura® for mountain robustness. This makes the Terra Pants the personification of ‘tough lightweight’.

Montane also love making use of the exceptional qualities of Pertex: a fabric which naturally achieves a high, controlled level of wind resistance, they use it in their range of ultra-light wind shirts which keep you warm when you want to be, and as an outer material for their down jackets to increase their thermal efficiency.
