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.

Love this Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've had this thing for 2 winters now and just love it. Being in MN we get cold...and the arctic blast just showed up again, reminding how much I love this thing. This is a very warm jacket, and I love the snugness of the hood (adjustable in a couple dimensions with two chords) and extra length to go down past the butt (medium, 5-9). I don't wear it for biking, skiing, etc., as it'd be too warm, but love it for just working outside, walking, standing, whatever. Highly recommended if you want a warm jacket (baffling is great), particularly for the price point.

Very happy

I live in northern NJ and picked this jacket over others after doing my research into value per price. I looked at montbell, patagonia, moncler, etc. My reqs were water, wind, warmth, breathability, and light. The design and specs for this jacket are great. You can start wearing this jacket at 45F degrees. The colder it gets, the better you feel...or don't feel any cold. In a 15F degree rain and sleet storm, it was water resistant enough for the 20 minutes I was shoveling and the hood was nicely fastened. At 5 degrees, it felt great with a t-shirt only on. It also does good with 30mph winds too. I wear this to work daily too. I have no issues with pockets, cords, or zipper either. The XL snug enough for tshirt and loose for a fleece too. I love this jacket so far it's been 2 months since I bought.

Well designed jacket, but not warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

My goal is to find a replacement for a worn Mountain Hardwear Stormlite parka, which I think is the best designed parka I've ever seen. I just want a parka length coat for daily use in southeast Michigan.
I'm 5'7.5" tall, 155lbs, 30" waist, 39" chest. Long monkey arms. Medium jacket. The hood is nicely adjustable and can be used with or without a bulky hat. I wish it sealed the neck a bit better, but it is ok considering my skinny neck. Face coverage is excellent. The arm length and fit are good, nicely adjustable cuffs. The jacket fits wonderfully with the excellent waist drawcord; EVERY jacket should have one! The handwarmer pockets are easily accessed and set behind insulation (pockets at the upper chest are silly to me). It covers the butt and groin, mobility is excellent, zippers were easy to use. The shell fabric was very light, but seemed reasonably durable and is allegedly very wind resistant.
This is a beautiful jacket, with quality materials and nice workmanship.
But there is one huge issue: It isn't warm. I don't understand why. On paper, it should be. Layering helped, but I still felt a little cold. I do tend to be a bit cold. Perhaps the arms are a little light on insulation. The shell seems wind resistant, but maybe the inner and outer material is too breathable, allowing heat to escape?
In the end I returned it.
As an aside, Backcountry is amazing regarding returns, and has excellent customer service.
I tried a medium Rab Neutrino Pro: very nice, much warmer than the Montane. Sleeves fit great, but too loose in the chest and abdomen, without a WAIST drawcord to snug it up.
Tried a medium Mountain Equipment Lightline. Another excellent jacket, warmer than the Rab, but fit was similar to the Rab.
Small size might work, but the sleeves would likely be too short, possibly too tight.
Both returned.
Just ordered the Montane Deep Heat. More insulation, similar features. Will try to post a review.

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.
