What is the Minimus Jacket?

The Minimus jacket is one of the most comfortable, lightweight and packable shell jackets available. The combination of the Pertex Shield waterproof membrane, the 20 denier outer fabric and the soft inner fabric ensures performance and reliability in a range of changeable conditions. 

What is it made from?

Starting from the inside, Montane give you a surprisingly soft and pliable fabric which feels great next to skin but also glides easily over additional layers on colder days. In the middle sits a Pertex Shield membrane; this membrane is fully waterproof, fully windproof, highly packable and one of the most breathable options available, making it perfect for moving quickly in the mountains. The outer fabric is a 20 denier nylon and offers protection from rucksack straps and general wear and tear. All of these fabrics have been chosen to offer the perfect balance between weight and performance, allowing the jacket to pack into a size not much bigger than an apple. Impressive, right?

What are the features?

Features wise, it's a pretty minimalist piece but still retains all the usual mountain features you'd expect from a Montane shell. You get a fully adjustable, roll-away, helmet compatible hood with a wired peak to prevent water dripping onto your face, a full length zip with a storm flap, a mesh lined map size chest pocket which also doubles up as the stuffsack, and lastly an adjustable hem and cuffs. The lack of hand pockets is to allow the jacket to fit more comfortably when wearing a harness or while using a rucksack with a large hipbelt... besides, who puts their hands in their pockets when walking in the mountains?

How does it fit?

The Minimus features a nice long, tapered fit with articulated sleeves to increase comfort and mobility. There is plenty of room in the shoulders and chest, yet the jacket fits beautifully when wearing just a baselayer. 

Where does it fit in the layering system?

It's designed as an outer layer which is where it will be used 90% of the time. You can stick a synthetically insulated jacket over the top when you stop for lunch to offer additional warmth, but the Minimus works best as the layer on the outside of your layering system.

Summary

The Minimus is a fantastic jacket for the money; it's light, stretchy, breathable, well-fitted and packs down to a size not much bigger than an apple. It's a brilliant choice for those needing a spring/summer shell for chaneable weather conditions.

Care & Advice

Care and maintenance

To keep your outdoor clothing and equipment in tip top condition and performing to its maximum we recommend the use of Nikwax products. We have been using Nikwax products since day one (26th March 1986) and have found them to be totally reliable, dependable and effective. Today’s Nikwax treatments contain environmentally friendly elastic water-repellent polymers that bond to fabric fibres, leaving the spaces between open and breathable. These stretchy polymers are able to stretch and move with the fabric so they stay put for longer and work better.

Nikwax treatments will not change the look or feel of the fabric and they are all water based, environmentally safe, non-flammable and contain no nasty Fluorocarbons. Nikwax products can be used to clean, re-proof and revitalise all your outdoor technical clothing and equipment.

Waterproof breathable clothing has a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish applied to the face fabric during the manufacturing process. The DWR forces water to bead up and roll off the surface therefore preventing the fabric from absorbing moisture. If the outside of your jacket is soaked in a layer of cold water, the warm damp air within can’t escape and will condense on the inside. This makes the jacket feel cold clammy and can make you think that it’s leaking. The DWR finish is not permanent and needs to be maintained and revitalised to optimise performance.

This three layer waterproof jacket should be cleaned regularly with Nikwax Tech Wash; I wash my jacket about once a month, or more often if it gets really filthy. Regular washing with Tech Wash will maintain the DWR for longer and remove salts and oils that can contaminate the fabric, and it will keep your lovely jacket clean and smelling fresh. Washing can be done in a machine according to the manufacturers care guidelines (on the internal label). First clean out any detergent and conditioner residue from the machine dispenser and then add the required amount of Tech Wash and away you go. Hand washing is also suitable but be sure to rinse the garment well.

When you notice that rain/water is no longer beading up and rolling off it’s time to re-proof. Nikwax TX Direct will re-instate a long lasting DWR to completely rejuvenate your jacket. Re-proofing can also be done in the machine once a garment has been washed. Just add the TX-Direct and use the same programme you used for washing. You can also use the spray-on product on a damp garment that has just been washed.

You wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and never have it serviced, so make sure you regularly wash and re-proof your quality kit.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
