Technically tailored, durably constructed, very practical and easy to wear, it will keep you comfortable for many seasons to come.

*Montane's Chameleon Kinetic is a very lightweight non-membrane softshell, which is wind resistant, breathable and fast drying. It offers a good balance of abrasion resistance vs low weight. Danier gradient fabric construction means the fabric wicks away moisture very well, and the DWR means it will bead light rain.
I love montane stuff... but not this one. It looks great, feels great, comfy, excellent build quality but.... the fabric (which would make an excellent minimalist pullover) offers almost no wind resistance, barely any noticeable warmth and, whilst it has a good water resistant coating in theory I find that any wind (and there’s always some wind! ) will blow the rain straight in. In short I don’t see any way in which this jacket is a shell and due to all the pockets and ott good design it doesn’t layer very well either - but offer no warmth anyway. I’ve tried and tried to find a use for it but simply can’t. Unfortunately I spent too long trying to like it so couldn’t get a refund. Your needs may be different and you might think it’s the best think ever but for me - it a disappointing miss match of material vs design.

Montane stretch jacket
Bought this jacket as a summer outer layer have found it to be excellent quality and comfortable, only thing is I had to buy xxxl to get a good fit and I am only a 42/44 chest? However I will be buying Montane in the future

First class jacket
Bought Montane Dyno Stretch softshell for general use both on the hills and in town. It has proved to be an excellent purchase - light, stretchy, comfortable, shower-proof, breathable. An all round great jacket for 3 seasons on its own, and I'm sure when doubled up with a fleecy for winter use too.

Lightweight, well cut, well made softshell jacket
I bought this as a summer soft shell jacket for walking and climbing and my first impressions are good. I've got a fair amount of montane kit which I've been pretty impressed with so far and this doesn't seem to be any exception.
It is a very basic jacket, i.e it doesn't have any fancy membranes inside or any pit zips, but with it being so thin and light, it really doesn't need them. Its very stretchy, which will make it ideal for climbing in.
Its well made as with most other montane items and light enough to stuff in your pack. The hood states its helmet compatible but it does seem slightly on the small side, fine if your helmet is slimline but a helmet compatible hood is really only something Id be looking for on a full on winter shell, not a lightweight summer jacket.
Is it worth £100? Maybe not quite that much but its a very new item at the moment so I don't expect it to be reduced any time this season, but with go outdoors running 10/15% off offers most of the year round you can't go wrong for a few quid less!!
