Montane Protium Lite Hooded Fleece Jacket M’s


Weight: 240 g

Size guide

A new upgrade to the highly popular Allez Micro Hoodie, Protium Lite is the latest version of Montane’s versatile grid fleece. Still ultralight in weight, Protium Lite is slightly warmer than its predecessor. The main principles remain the same: Protium Lite is a thin, highly breathable and moisture wicking hiking fleece. Combined with a wind jacket, Protium Lite works surprisingly well in most of the conditions that come across in Nordic hiking. This subtle feature makes it a perfect companion for hikes: no more adding and removing layers, everything just works.

Protium Lite works well both as a baselayer and a mid-layer. We use it 80% as a baselayer directly next to skin, and 20% combined with a light merino baselayer. Often this works as the only shirt to bring for a hike: it dries rapidly, so it is often dry before bedtime. This spares the weight of an additional sleeping top in your pack.

The jacket version includes a full zip and side pockets: This adds great versatilty when hiking, travelling or in daily use.

Montane Protium Lite Hooded Fleece Jacket M’s

Protium Lite is an ultralight grid fleece that is very suitable for the typical temperatures of Nordic three-season hiking. Many hikers use the shirt with a wind jacket, as this combination works for most of the weather conditions encountered. Due to its breathable structure, temperature regulation is easily done by adjusting the wind shirt on top of Protium Lite. Use it like this:

  • Warm weather: Wear only the shirt
  • Cold weather: Top the shirt with a wind jacket with zipper open
  • Cold weather, wind: Top the shirt with a wind jacket, close the zippers and wear the hoods
  • Chilly weather: As above, but add a light baselayer (an excellent option is also to double up Protium Lite, as it works well both as a baselayer and as a mid-layer)

The fabric of Protium lite transfers moisture from skin to the outer surface of the shirt, which allows it to dry rapidly. Only the grid pattern touches skin, so the shirt has a good next-to-skin feel even when moist. Due to the grid construction it breathes really well.

Polygiene treatment ensures that Protium Lite stays fresh for long. We have a long experience with Polygiene treated shirts, and we can vouch for the technology working really well.

Full zipper and side pockets increase versatilty and ventilation options.

If you choose to pack Protium Lite in your backpack, it weighs very little and packs surprisingly small.
