COMPETITION: WINNER - Win a Montane Starlight Pull-On

The idea of the Starlight Pull-On comes from Montane Athlete Tom Ballard's experiences during his 'Starlight and Storm' project a few seasons ago. i.e. Lightness is the key to moving fast in the mountains. Especially when you want to be the first person to solo the six great north faces of the Alps in one winter season.

To that effect, it is hoodless, close-fitting, and packed with 90/10 HyperDRY™ water-resistant goose down at 800+ fill power. This ensures it is as light as possible whilst focussing warmth where it is needed - your core. Side zips allow for heat dumping when required.

The Starlight Pull-On is so light and packs down so small that you won't even notice it in your pack. Until that moment when you start feeling cold and you'll be glad to slip it on.

Using our FEATHERLITE™ XV a 15 Denier nylon rip-stop fabric, weighing a ridiculous 32 grams per square meter. With a product as technical as this it would have been a crime to compromise on the lining, so the same specification is used inside and out. A durable water repellent finish was added to shed snow, spindrifts and light drizzle or the occasional shower.

While very specifically developed, the Starlight Pull-On is hugely versatile as a super lightweight layering piece.
