We want kit that enables us to focus, to steel our drive against the unpredictability of the environments we love. To find comfort through experience, mental toughness, and physical ability. We seek the simplicity of a hard job done well, and the visceral rewards that go unseen.
The new Montane spring range is the consolidation of 100’s of hours of R&D both in the studio and on the backs of professionals and athletes to ensure there is enough of what you need to accentuate your experiences in the mountains. Features are intuitively placed and prudently used, fabrics are sensitively chosen to maximise your body’s natural capabilities and negate the unpredictable nature of the places we revere so much. This approach – and ethos - leaves you free to pursue your goals free of distraction, as far or as fast as you want.
Headlining the new spring range for SS21 is the expansion of the Montane VIA Trail Series Pack range which has been developed based on thousands of kilometres of experience and in-depth athlete feedback. The range has a refreshed colour palette and now includes the new unisex Montane Gecko Ultra VP+ (shown above) which delivers the ultimate in anatomically fitted storage with a multitude of pockets for carrying the essentials when running or training.
The collection is further strengthened by new high-performance next-to-skin layers such as the Montane Men’s Dragon Twin Skin Shorts and the Montane Women’s Katla Twin Skin Shorts. The shorts feature a close-fitting CARVICO under short with a lightweight, loose overshort. The technical feature is designed for trail and endurance runners alike.
In addition, the Montane Terra range has been expanded via the inclusion of the Men’s and Women’s Terra Route Pants which use durable and wind-resistant granite stretch fabric, with a PFC-free DWR treatment for a more environmentally friendly, enduring water resistance. The Montane Terra Route Pants are a versatile softshell pant designed to withstand changeable weather, which are perfect for high trekking routes.
Montane’s Global Marketing Manager, Matthew Hickman, commented:
“Our new spring range is the perfect fusion of functionality, durability and simplicity. Whether it is kit to enjoy the still and reflective moments immersed in nature, through to the exhilaration of going as far and as fast as possible, our goal is to make multi-activity adventures more accessible."
“At Montane we strive
to push the boundaries, test our capabilities, and expand our horizons and we
believe our new collection will allow more people to do just that, to do more, to
achieve more and to go Further. Faster.”
Other product highlights include the new Montane azote packs, which are the brand’s most functional go-anywhere, do-anything packs; the iconic Montane Men's Featherlite Smock which features 100% recycled nylon PERTEX QUANTUM ECO fabric, providing breathable wind protection for any fast-paced mountain activity; and the Montane Men’s Mode Pro Pants and the Women’s Ineo Capri Pants which are ideal for demanding mountain adventures due to a dynamic slim fit with excellent freedom of movement.
