MontBell Ex Light Women’s Down Jacket Review
The lightest down jacket to be found, but the women’s version doesn’t have as much loft and warmth as the men’s version.
By Backpacking Light
MontBell states that the Ex Light Down Jacket is "the ultimate in minimalist design" and it's hard to argue with that. It combines cutting edge materials - 7 denier (0.74 oz/yd2) shell, 900 fill-power down - and minimizes features to create the lightest down jacket to be found. It's claimed to provide more warmth than a fleece jacket with a fraction of the weight or bulk and is basically targeted to people like us who want a high warmth-to-weight ratio. So what's not to like? Is it truly a gift from heaven?
