The Montane Oryx jacket is a very versatile garment. It is very comfortable and can be worn over a T shirt or as a mid layer under a fleece, soft or hard shell. It is functional yet looks good and has a fashionable design that can easily be worn with jeans for more casual occasions.
It is so light that it can be easily carried in your bag without adding any weight.
However, whilst appearing grey on the screen, it is in fact more of a green/grey and whilst this garment was in the sale at £56, I feel that the full price of over £70 is quite expensive.
The zipped pocket on the mens Oryx Jacket is on the front which I feel is better than the one on the arm on the womens Gazelle equivalent. This is quite difficult to open with one hand. Obviously this is done for a specific reason, but is a point to consider.
