Following the announcement of Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric in spring 2007, numerous manufacturers are getting their Pro Shell products to market this winter and spring. Among the lightest of the crop is Montbell's new Thunderhead Jacket, scheduled for spring 2008 availability. Montbell's version of Pro Shell is a thinner 30 denier 3-layer construction, with shoulder panels of 20 denier Gore-Tex PackLite to save some weight and cost. At $298 US, the Thunderhead is comparatively inexpensive, though that's still a chunk of change.
