announcement by Montane
The Speed-Lite is windproof, water resistant and extremely small, packing into its stuff sack to less than the size of an orange. What's more, it's a jacket with a conscience: over half its sale price will go to Mountain Rescue England and Wales.
Northumberland-based Montane has launched a five-piece Mountain Rescue Limited Edition range that aims to raise £50,000 for the life-saving charity.
The fundraising target has only been made possible through the kind donation of fabrics from leading technical brands: Polartec, Pertex and Entrant DT and PrimaLoft. The five products will range in price from £40 - £125 and will comprise a collection of technical outdoor garments for active mountain use. All will come in black with a red trim and branded 'Limited Edition' and will be sold at the Outdoors Show in March at the Birmingham NEC. Montane will also sell products from a specially developed tranche of its website.
Montane's Lite-Speed jacket: it won't weigh down your pack but it'll be a God-send should you need a bit of protection.
Price:£50 with £27 going to Mountain Rescue England & Wales.
