The Montane Hydra-Lite Smock excels as a bare-bones, durable, leakproof rain shell. If you’re one of those hikers that carries a rain shell as a last resort, contingency backup (and we’d certainly count ourselves among that crowd), it is a super value for complete storm protection at less than 8 oz (225 g)! At $148.00, the Hydra-Lite Smock is within the reach of many backpackers and hikers. It is lighter and cheaper than Gore-Tex PacLite, Gore-Tex XCR and eVENT-branded products. Upgrade the shell in its same design as fabrics became lighter! The Montane Hydra-Lite Smock is one of the best overall anorak designs on the market.
