This soft shell jacket from Lowe Alpine is a tight fit, making it very warm. However, the fabric is extremely stretchy, so it’s not at all restrictive. Adjustment is good too, with drawcords at the hem and collar. The Multi Pitch is both warm and comfortable, yet breathes well and keeps a fair amount of rain out when needed. The pockets are nice and high, with mesh-linings that double as vents.
Verdict: A high performance jacket that breathes well and keeps the worst of the weather out. Check the sizing before buying, especially if you want to wear a variety of insulation layers with it.
Colours: Graphite grey, deep red, grey
