With decades of experience in the mountains, one bit of feedback always remains the same - could this be made lighter? Our range of men's lightweight jackets and ultralight jackets are designed for those who are continually striving to save every last gram of weight in their kit.

If you're an ultra-runner or a mountain runner, a lightweight waterproof jacket might be what you need for the harsh mountain weather. For hikers and mountaineers on the hills, a lightweight waterproof is something that you should always have handy in your rucksack in the event of changing weather conditions. With this in mind, it's important that the jacket both performs to a high standard and is lightweight enough to not to weigh you down when not in use. The same thought process is applied to our range of lightweight down jackets, ensuring they can be easily stowed while you're on the move and provide enough warmth when you need it.
