    Any idea of how many times you've worn it with a pack and the longest days exposure to hard rain? Cheers

    Nearly always got a day pack on of some description, don't remember it fully wetting out and was my go to daily rain jacket for ages and ages. Have you found one in orange or something? :wink:

    I've seen this 'model' in a number of shots for montane. He certainly likes a tight fitting top. Either that or he's in denial about his true sizing.

    They are a very athletic cut, luckily I am too. It's not a straight down the middle same width like patagonia or the like.

    I find a good corset works wonders.

    But I end up looking like the number 8

    reviews arent filling me with confidence for that atomic, seems to have breathability issues? price is definitely right though at £69, and love montane stuff usually

    It’s got pit zips, but to be fair it's not as good as some. What price range do you mean then?

    Price range was fine, looking up to £100 really as i dont actually need i just want something new...

    Main criteria is breath-ability as i tend to move a lot quicker than most and can build up a lot of heat

    I tried on the montane atomic jacket but didn't like the fit (the female model looks good in it but she's got the beanpole figure I had before I had my second child). The trousers however are great, much used and a little abused in the last two years or so. No issues with breathability.

    Pick a size and colour. Got one of these too and reckon it breathes a bit more.
    Mine maybe a downpour plus. In a field in North Wales at the moment so can't check

    Bargain by price, the last one I bought is 5 years ago, is still ok but losing a bit of shape. £30 for a merino midlayer with a hood is a bargain in my book.

    He's a gear tart... last seen wearing the opposition garb too, Mountain Equipment Jackets to be exact. How exactly does one become an outdoor gear model? Is it just having a beard.
