The Montane Dyno isn't perfect, but then what jacket is. But it does make an excellent 'average weather' outer layer. It wont compete with hardshells for waterproof or windproof abilities, and it's not as warm as a fleece. But it does sit quite nicely in the middle, pretty much like a lot of the weather here in the UK. The high level of breathibilty has to be a bonus for someone like myself who walks very warm. Price wise, it should retail for around £80-100 online, although I picked up my jacket for just under £47 + P&P. Would I recommend it? At the price I paid, without a doubt. At the full price, it depends on if it fills a need.
