Topic - Alpine climbing hard shell - opinions please

Brian Pollock - on 27 May 2013
I'm off to the Alps in June and trying to do some weight shaving on my gear.

I was going to bring my normal hardshell (Rab Stretch Neo) but I'm now considering just bringing my Montane Litespeed H20 as it is much lighter and packs to less than half the size.

Anyway, the question is...is a ultralight minimalist shell enough for summer alpine climbing or would it be better live with the extra weight in favour of a more robust hardshell?
