The EX Light products have always epitomized our minimalist design concepts. This year we seek to transform the offering with the addition of a “puffed-up” anorak. Ultra light and space saving this garment provides the highly versatile sweater weight warmth critical to the gram conscious trail enthusiast. Mindful selection of premium materials make the EX Light Anorak a perfect replacement for heavier, bulky items that traditionally demand so much space in your pack. Outfitted with a simple Eskimo style hood and an insulated kangaroo pocket, staying comfortable in the fickle weather of the backcountry just became a little easier. Functional in its purpose, versatile in its use, and with over 35% of the garment weight being premium quality Down insulation this piece is a must for any well thought out layering system!

900 Fill Power Down


Fill power (or loftiness) refers to the volume in cubic inches that 1 ounce of Down will displace. The higher the fill power, the less Down is needed to achieve a given thermal profile. All other things being equal (fabric, construction method, and fill amount), a product made with high fill power Down (900) is lighter and more compressible than an equally warm one made with lower quality Down (650).

7-denier Ballistic Airlight Nylon


We utilize some of the smallest fibers and thinnest fabrics available to achieve a highly compressible ultra-light garment. This silky 7-denier shell has the feel of cotton, but is durable enough to withstand the rigors of normal use for an insulated inner piece. Weighing in at a spartan 25 grams per square meter this highly wind resistant fabric is one of the lightest used in the outdoor industry!



In sewn-through construction, stitch lines go from the exterior of the garment directly to the lining material to join the two layers, creating small pockets for Down insulation. This simple method provides an economical way to keep Down in place, while leaving the garment as light as possible.

Goose and Duck Down Sourcing


At Montbell, we source Down from both the European and Chinese markets to satisfy a variety of characteristics (supply/availability, low cost, consistent quality, humane practices, etc.) and maintain our lofty standards. Every season we seek to balance the superior quality for which we are known and the lowest possible raw materials cost. We change Down sourcing companies frequently to insure that our customers have access to superior products at the lowest price possible. In the course of these efforts, Montbell never purchases Down from operations that practice “live-plucking” methods. We only utilize Down plumes and feathers collected as a by-product of water fowl raised to meet the demands of the food industry.

We will continue to look for sources of Down that maximize value to our customers and allow Montbell products to perform at the highest level.
