The fleece-lined collar is an ideal height and feels great against the skin. Sadly, the cuffs are too tight to pull up when needing to cool down. A lovely lightweight soft shell and the fabric has plenty of ‘give’ in it, making it really easy to move in. Would be better with slightly bigger pockets for a map.A very light and stretchy jacket that keeps the weather out well and works effectively both as an outer or mid-layer. Exceptional value at £65, too.
