Hi nifty, how do you find the sizing on the jackets? I normally wear a medium but not the blue would be my thing. Would you mind posting some photos please?

Hi, also curious about the medium colour.

I am sitting here in a Montane down jacket right now - they fit small in my opinion. I wear a medium in most things and my Montane large jacket fits a base and midlayer or a base and waterproof underneath.
That said, they have different fits for different activities. If you want it to be close fitting the medium is probably OK unless you have broad shoulders.

Thanks so much slparker, perfect explanation.

I'll post some of the Narwhal blue tonight, which is a fantastic colour.
I'm 185 and 84kg athletic, they both fit well. The black North star can be layered over a base and mid, but fits well over a base. The Anti blue is trimmer and shorter arms, but fits over a base and looks smart- would work for town, but for me, won't accept a mid layer easily.
Awesome loft to weight ratio for both, quality gear
