Insulation From the Gods

Super light and packable, the cross core insulated Icarus Lite Jacket for men from Montane is the perfect addition to any day pack. 

We all know the story of Icarus and while he may have flown too close to the sun, at least we know he was warm, and it’s warm that defines this super lightweight jacket from Montane. Made with ThermoPlume material, the Icarus Lite Jacket has been designed as a lightweight and packable mid or outer insulation layer for almost any cold-weather activity.

Using cutting-edge synthetic PrimaLoft Silver ThermoPlume with Cross Core technology which mimics the air-trapping qualities of natural down and gives maximum warmth for the weight, the Icarus Lite jacket is a great addition to day packs when you’re on Zodiac excursions in changeable weather, when you’re out on decks after the sun’s gone down, or for those early morning hikes before your first cup of coffee.

Perfect for fast-paced activities like hiking, photography, or mountain climbing, the jacket’s Featherlite mini rip-stop nylon lining and ThermoPlume construction ensure a jacket that’s both a warming layer but also durable, while articulated arms, an insulated under hood helmet, and two hand pockets with YKK zips ensure it’s practical no matter the activity.
