I have worn the Montane Viper Hoodie almost constantly for the past month, and I have to say that it is as good as advertised. It is super soft and breathable that I almost forget I am wearing it. Durability appears to be superb and the jacket is an excellent mid-layer for a variety of activities. Click HERE for my first update on the Montane Viper Hoodie.
I have used and abused the PATH projects base liner and shorts for the past 5 months, and I am impressed. They have seen hot and humid days running on the Mississippi River Levee in New Orleans and goldilocks weather in Greece as I ran the Authentic Athens Marathon. Their system is comfortable, durable and functional whether hiking or running. Read my final thoughts HERE.
