“Montane don’t just produce high quality products for the outdoors they also share the same insatiable appetite for adventure and moving fast and light in the mountains. I use their products not because I’m a Montane Athlete, I genuinely love the products they produce. From the Montane Prism Jacket to the Gecko running vest, I use it all the time and the kit enables me to move fast unhindered so I can get the best out of the day, squeezing every drop of adventure until the light fades.
For me adventure is best shared with others and spending time in the mountains with fun people who love what they do is for me bliss, its days like these that give the most rewards where people and mountains create an adventure that you will remember forever." - Matt Cooper
