Cool kit for a cool autumn

 Montane VIA Dragon (new for AW18) Price TBC 


This is a lightweight and breathable stretch mid-layer with Polygiene odour-resistant technology and, most interestingly, cuffs that transform into emergency windproof mitts. We have one in for an early test and can report it’s a beautifully smooth top that moves with you during a run, providing a nice competitive-type fit. We can’t confirm the windproof mitts, however, as the weather hasn’t produced anything more inclement than a minor shower for us to put the top through its paces. But we can report they are there and they do look like they’ll do a great job!
