Hi
My mammot puffa jacket has died. Was going to get RAB jacket, but tried montane black ice and felt a better fit etc. seemed ok for small - rab seemed a bit baggy. Anyone got either' ? Comments appreciated. Gonna use for outdoors when bouldering, climbing or hill walking.
Cheers

In reply to rorschach:
Got a neutrino in a small, quite happy with it, only problem is the zips are fiddly - why do companies put waterproof zips on Down Jackets???

It's getting some use at the moment but never used it in anger - I've got an old stinky ME Down for the hill.

I've tried on the Montane black ice and I have to say I would agree much nicer fit - however Im not sure you could throw it over a lot of layers as it was quite fitted around the shoulder/armpits.

Thanks for that!
Yeah, small Montane was fitted - only reckon I'd be able to get a mid layer or t-shirt on!

Waiting to try a medium on...

In reply to rorschach: It was tight on my child like upper arms, so anyone with guns will have no chance.
