A well performing nylon shell, the Velocity uses Entrant DT for effective waterproofing. We also found it reasonably breathable on the bike. Given Montane’s record in producing lightweight tops, it’s no surprise that this weighs just 270g and packs into its own stuffsack.
But it still manages to include waterproof rear and front pockets (the front one has a hole for your MP3 cable), over 3m of reflective material, a full-length waterproof zip, a fleece collar and Velcro cuffs. In short, pretty much everything you could want from a waterproof but with no excess weight.
