Welcome back to the channel today i have. A special treat i have the montane deep. Cold down review jacket to review and. It's actually should be called deep space because it's really warm now before i get into the review i want. To explain to you guys what this jacket the magic of this jacket is and i just. Learned this myself out the day now there're three types of down jackets. There's the most commonly the stitch through method where the down is inside these little arm stitch through pockets of our baffles and you have the. Traditional box baffles where the down. Is inside separate chambers of baffles. That are not stitched through so it's a. Wall in between each baffle the stitch through method is just um a long wall. Long baffle with stitches in the middle you have with a much rarer bb or double. Chain burr a bottle where it's sort of. Stitch through v formation but it's just. Like a box style battle but with a v. Formation now most jackets have to. Stitch through most cheap cheaper like a. Patagonia high loft down or patagonia down sweaters they'll have this um stitch through because it makes the jacket lighter cheaper to make and it's. Easy to wear and pack the jacket or stuff jack into a sack the traditional box wall baffle jackets are used for. Mountaineering and are really expensive and really expensive to make and really. Unpack able and stuff able and heavy much heavier now with the lighter materials. Like pertex endurance that this tractor uses and um peak down liner that. Dis tractor uses it makes the jacket just as light as if it had the stitch through method now I'm gonna go into it check in. Is um cut longer for the size and I'm. Five foot eight inches tall and i usually wear 155 pounds 56 pounds after. The holidays I'll be a hundred and sixty pounds and easily wear our size our medium jackets are a 38 regular suit men's suit. Size some a medium but ana size them too small to get this fit and to get this. Fit i mean the jacket is advertised as being cut wide in the torso and longer. In the sleeves for layering but because. The jacket is really warm you don't really need to layer much under it like as you see all i have is a t-shirt a t-shirt and my track top and it's. Really cool today it's 20 degrees it's gonna snow later on today we expect a. A bit of snow so i figured I'll just start wearing this it's really cold now. Inside the jacket you have this neon green lining and you have that peak down. Liner inside that that makes it really warm next to your skin one gripe is the. Internal mesh pockets are really small you can't fit more than a 16 ounce on pull and spring bottle in there and the other mesh pocket is just a zippered pocket for wallet and keys and normally. On a jacket like this you have like really massive internal pockets or water bottles and mittens and stuff like that to keep them warm against your skin against your body but here you don't. Have that but what montane does do well is the exterior pockets imma go into that so you have the to weigh the lanes. If I'm not sure if you guys can see that. So it sits up like that and you have to place it down there which is really cool you have a lot of velcro on this jacket along the storm flap this velcros all down it and you have a double baffle so. You have internal baffle here storm flap. And an out external storm flap on opposite sides of the zipper so well this does it prevent arm prevents cold. Spots from getting in the middle because you have down all around the jacket but the weakest point of a down jacket it's where the zipper runs because it's just a thin layer of fabric along the zipper. So you want to protect that ee and this does that fray well and a buckle keeps this. Keeps that secure now you have in terms. Of the pockets you have the secret panel of pockets down here and there on the. Inside of the down there's down on both sides of these pockets all the pockets in this jacket so you have down on the inside and down on the outside so your hands are really warm in these pockets we have another. Velcro garage pocket down here and a. Vocal one of my clients is really loud. And has that tear and velcro sound and if you're not used to bunco its gonna take a while to get you stuff so you have these garage pockets down here now. The bellow pockets are i call in the garage pockets you can either wear the flaps inside if you don't want to deal the velcro I'm tearing every time or you. Can just pull throw it up like that and it doesn't look big or anything like that it looks very well in line with. Jacket you also have to napoleon pockets. Up here and these are down line as. Well but the only down line on the. Outside but inside is its yours your skin or whatever you burn so to prevent. These from being kept open what montane has done was put more velcro on them so when a pocket like this is open cold air. Could get in and create a cold spot against your skin so montine has. Created out buckle there so if you. Forget the zip the pocket back up they'll close out of mount fleet with the velcro so these are also pockets. Because they're all inside the down, and they're not that big this is maybe mainly for keys or lip balm or. Something like a phone or something on the go and that zips up and so you have. The pocket and the beauty of this jacket. Normally like a box wall expedition down. Hoodie jacket like this it's a big lofty. Marshmallow shaped less potato kind of i call a potato shape but this one is tailored so it hugs your body the. Sleeves are articulated so you can move your arms around you have a nice range of motion as well so it doesn't pop. So the box one of the beauties of the. Box wall baffle it doesn't give you that mikkel and tire or the stay puft. Marshmallow guy it doesn't give you that that tire kind of shaped like you ran a bunch of tires it's a streamline cut. Even though it's a bigger jacket it doesn't look puffy like a regular puffy down jacket because all like a. Straight baffle so much this you get that really well tailoring and what Montaigne has done it's really cold you. Have these internal hinge toggles in the back which is really cool so you can cinch this jacket in the. Midsection and this sort of replaces a. Traditional powder skirt or snow skirt so it hugs the jacket against your waist. Even though it's a longer cut jacket so when the jacket is zipped up you can't get any elements inside the jacket come on the neat because normally what would happen the wind blows up and it comes right up the jack and you get that cold spot in the torso now it doesn't do that because it has this internal cinch but internal cinch is just a simple tube with a bungee cord and a cinch toggle and that's it there's no snow skirt or anything like that or anything extreme that goes into end it's only in the back. Of the jacket and it's really well done it makes it lighter jacket and it makes an effective sort of replacement for a snow skirt or powder skirt down below you also have your dual. Pinch toggles in this side for the torso and you have a drop tail hem in the. Back which is really cool if you don't. Want it to be really long you could cinch it up to make a shorter jacket to. Make it wear shorter and as you can see what a jackets unzipped it's not like it doesn't look like it's are uncomfortable to wear it's its stay it keeps its shape so it keeps a rigid shape another thing montana has done is. Use different textures of pertex endurance throughout the jacket so you have a beefier thicker textures of hair. On their arms shoulders and the but you. Have a softer kind of fabric on the front and in the inside of the arms there so you also have d-ring clips to. Hold mittens and gloves off of which is. Kind of cool right there and Douro cinching cuffs. Which is really cool and sort of. Necessary because the sleeves are really long for the size and I've sized down to. A smaller sleeve still come over my fingertips as you see there which is cool now the best part of this jacket is. The hood unzips and it zips in. With this arm sealing zipper their secret where the jacket with the hood unzipped or zipped up and what montine. Has done with the hood normally a hood has the internal fabric on the inside of. The hood but montine realized your hair could get wet or your hat could get wet or if it's snowing and the jackets worn like with the hood down kind of and water gets in there and it could get the down wet, so they've made a waterproof interior lining for the hood. Which is the same as outside of the hood so it's all one material on the hood which is really smart because. Most jackets just have that soft internal lining and the inside of the hood and that's not waterproof and that's not weatherproofed so when that gets damp the down liner gets. Damaged sorry it's really cold out here. Guys so you also have these are sleeping. Bag baffles up there which is really good and I'm gonna put the hood on and the. Hood tucks away it has these snaps that tuck it away when not worn and another gripe about the hood what the only gripe is too much fog, or they have velcro all down here so you get that. Tearing summer what the velcro does the positives of having velcro there is if. It's really cold and it's its coming.
