The Icicle vest is the warmest down vest that we make and is intended for use in the extreme cold of winter. Featuring a high performance laminated Hydronaute XT shell and filled with our new highly water resistant DWR 800+ Loft it is truly of expedition quality. Other key features include side torso baffles to ensure the down is evenly distributed around the torso and hard wearing shoulder panels to improve durability.
Using advanced monolithic PU membrane technology, Hydronaute XT™ fabric is completely waterproof, totally windproof & highly breathable. Guaranteed to maintain greater warmth & comfort than coated fabrics, Hydronaute XT is the best protection for down sleeping bags & clothing in cold to extreme conditions.
This product is filled with Premium White Down with a loft rating of at least 850 cubic inches per ounce.
Mont's down is selected for it's high quality, purity and the fact that it is not live plucked.
All Mont Sleeping Bags are sewn with hydrophobic Epic Thread. The silicon impregnated in this thread prevents moisture wicking along seams and into the bag, keeping down dryer and warmer.
Comfort in the Extreme: Using advanced monolithic PU membrane technology, Hydronaute XT fabric is completely waterproof, totally windproof & highly breathable. Guaranteed to maintain greater warmth & comfort than coated fabrics, Hydronaute XT is the best protection for down sleeping bags & clothing in cold to extreme conditions.
Waterproof to 20,000mm: Keeping down dry is vital for optimal performance; wet down just won't keep you warm. Waterproof Hydronaute XT fabric provides exceptional moisture protection for down clothing & sleeping bags.
Highly Breathable 20,000g/m2/24hrs: If not removed promptly, water vapour from your body will gather on down & reduce its ability to trap warmth. Hydronaute XT fabric expels 20L of water vapour per square metre per 24 hours for drier down, greater loft & maximum warmth.
Warmth Sealed In: With a 100% windproof rating, even Arctic blasts will not penetrate Hydronaute XT fabric, keeping warm air trapped inside.
The title says it all. This vest has found it's way into my gear most trips, travel and walking and skiing. With good conditions forecast I'll pack the Mont down vest every time and leave the heavier and bulkier Mont Icicle jacket at home. A very quick warming layer to pull on in the morning and evening. The lack of arms over the Icicle means it is a lot easier to move about an do stuff in the tent. A thermal layer and a Mont Bush Shirt underneath makes up a standard set of layers for most cold conditions. It starts to run out of puff about -10 for me. By then it is Icicle time. It packs down very small and is very light and so fits into the carry on bags or day pack for additional warmth, a pillow, granny blanket in the bus station or a jumper wrap for the soaking stage of freezedry meals.
