MontBell U.L. Thermawrap Action Jacket SPOTLITE REVIEW
MontBell offsets the trim fit of their U.L. Thermawrap Action Jacket with highly breathable, stretch fleece side panels (modeled by my daughter, Ivy Ham).

Another unique feature not often found in a synthetic fill jacket, MontBell added stretch fleece cuffs with thumb holes. The thumb holes are really handy on short running or cross-country ski trips. They keep my knuckles warm and can be removed (pushed up) without having to stow them. The stretch material does show wear over time. It tends to pill ball, and the inside seams on my jacket have started to fray a bit. This is cosmetic; pill balls can be pulled off, and I have carefully seared the edges inside the sleeves to prevent them from further fraying. My other concern is with the thumb hole’s size. They are a little tight for my size L hands, but not uncomfortably so.

The stretch fleece sleeves have thumb holes and length enough to use them. The fleece started to pill ball slightly after extended use (modeled by my daughter, Elly Ham).

Draft control is handled by a non-adjustable lycra waist line. The main zipper blocks wind entry with an inside storm flap. The storm flap is protected with a strip of grosgrain to keep the zipper from snagging.
