Down with the coldest conditions.
Designed for rugged mountaineering days, the Montane Men's Black Ice Down Jacket is perfect for cold days and nights on the move or resting. It utilizes a blend of water-resistant down and synthetic insulation to combine the warmth and packability of down with the fast drying and warm-when-wet properties of synthetic fill. A classic box baffle construction throughout the main body keeps insulation in place for consistent, reliable warmth, while the stitch-through construction on the sleeves reduce bulk and improve freedom of movement.
Montane equipped the Black Ice jacket with various features to help augment your on-mountain experience. An adjustable, helmet-compatible hood provides extra protection from the elements, and the visor has been stiffened with a foam insert and wire to withstand wind. An internal elastic loop and hook allows the hood to be rolled down and stowed away in good conditions. The two-way front zipper is designed for use with a backpack or climbing harness. An internal waist drawcord adjustment for a warmer, more personalized fit, while the adjustable hem helps seal out cold and snow. the Black Ice also features an internal water bottle pocket to keep beverages in a liquid state when the temperature drops.

- Q & A
Best coat I have ever worn!!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I live in the hills of Western Massachusetts. I love to be warm, and I tried 5 different jackets before this one (E.Bauer, Columbia, Acertex, Patagonia and several others). But this one stands out as the very best and warmest by far!! Super great feel, too warm to keep on in the house for more than a minute, great sleeves that have adjustable wrist bands. This is a gorgeous coat, with a slight fish tail back end (perfect!). Very nice zipper pocket hand warmers and an outside upper pocket and an inside upper pocket. Hood rolls down into neck and feels like a super warm scarf.
I honestly love this beautiful and well-made coat that I plan to use for many years to come!.
Water-resistant down belay jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
The Black ice jacket is meant to be warm over your layering system in wet conditions as a belay jacket. Think Northwest ice climbing when it's nuking water-heavy snow. It is a 70% hyper dry down (750 fill) that is treated to be water-resistant, combined with 250g primaloft overlays. So you have primaloft on the outside with down on the inside, with a DWR treated and water-resistant Pertex Face fabric. The result is a jacket that will maintain it's warmth even in very wet conditions. The 70% down keeps it light, and it's finished with nice climbing features such as the helmet compatible hood with a wire-brim, 2-way center zipper with rubber pullers, so that you can easily zip up and zip down the jacket while wearing gloves and a harness.
