Speedhiking Hits A New Stride With Montane’s Ultralight Podium Outerwear

May 13, 2020

Heading deep into the mountains is often a well-planned process, with participants undertaking days, and oftentimes, weeks of preparation. For Northumberland’s premier outdoor outfit, Montane, things are a bit more cut and dry, especially when it comes to their well-known speed hike gear. Now the brand has revealed the next generation of its lightweight mountain clothing — a fitness-focused collection dubbed “Podium.”

The Podium Collection is an intuitive take on the genre of capable outdoor gear. Instead of gifting speed hikers and runners with traditional, mid/heavyweight garments that can hinder their progress, Montane has introduced two new ultralight examples for the avid explorer. The Podium Pull-On arrives as an anorak-styled torso option, crafted from the lightest waterproof fabrics available on the market today. The Podium Pant follows suit. Both are gifted with the company’s breathable Aqua Pro-Lite fabric and feature elasticated openings, micro-taped seams, YKK zips, articulated stress areas, and 360-degree VIA reflective detailing, allowing wearers to remain mobile and visible during their ascent. Each of these packable layers will provide adequate protection, airflow, and adaptability when you need it most, without weighing you down. Head to Montane’s website, where the Podium Collection starts at $110.

Purchase: $110+
