Josh Mathe recently reviewed the EX Light Down Anorak for Backpackers.com. Read what he has to say about one of our most popular down jackets and why they've awarded us their Budget Pick for the Ultralight Backpacker!
"What do you want from a piece of cold weather clothing when you’re moving light and fast through the backcountry? Easy: light, packable, and warm. The Montbell EX Light Down Anorak delivers these three essentials in spades, and includes a couple other cool features that make this bad boy pretty darn impressive. (The jacket is actually unisex so that gender assignment is simply poetic license.)
Even at a modest price point, there is no other jacket I’ve found that offers a warmth to ratio like the Montbell EX Light Down Anorak (6.2 oz and 900-fill goose down). This makes it the clear Budget Pick for the Ultralight Backpacker. While there are technically cheaper down jackets on the market, you’ll need your backcountry gear to help you survive. The Anorak will do that."
