Montane's new NeoShell jacket may not be out until later this year, but we've got one to play with right now.
There are things I take for granted in life, one of them, sadly is that after three hours hooning about wearing any sort of waterproof jacket, my baselayer will be moist. Not 'soaked', or even 'damp', but just wet enough from perspiration that sitting around afterwards leaves me feeling chilled.

Lakes-based retailer gets in touch with its feminine side with a change of name and branding... right.
We were so distracted by the Government's preposterous April Fool, the one about it being British Summer Time, that some of yesterday's more serious outdoor news stories somehow slipped under our radar, among them the decision by George Fisher of Keswick's decision to rebrand itself with a more female-friendly image.
