As I mentioned in my last video, due to my recent weight loss, my current Montbell jackets were a bit larger on me than they were before. So, with this in mind, and the new Ex Light Anorak on the market, I decided to pick up the Anorak, but in a smaller size. It showed up on my door step today, and I wanted to go ahead and share a video with you to get a first look at the new Anorak!

I also take some time to explain why you might want a laminated hardshell over other jacket options.
