The Montbell Versalite is the jacket we’ll be using the most for our ultralight adventures this year. It’s incredibly lightweight, but still has all the features of a heavier jacket - high hand pockets that work well with a backpack hip belt, pit-zips to dump excess heat as you warm up, and great hood, hem, and wrist adjustments for a dialed-in fit. The Versalite is made with thin materials to shave grams, so it’s not as durable as some jackets. If you’re into activities like hiking and backpacking, though, the weight-savings are well worth the tradeoff. If you’re looking to keep weight low, but still want all the bells and whistles, the Versalite is a fantastic choice and a great value.

Montbell Versalite Rain Jacket Review Men's / TEST REPORT BY Philip Werner

Reviewed in June, 2020

The Montbell Versalite is an ultralight waterproof/breathable rain jacket that weighs 7.0 oz in a men’s XL. It’s by far the best backpacking rain jacket in my gear closet in terms of the features important to hikers. It has pit zips, a four-way adjustable hood, hook and loop wrist cuffs, hip-belt compatible chest pockets, an internally controlled hem adjustment, waterproof zippers, and taped seams. Montbell nailed this one.
