Merrell Stowe

A lightweight, stretchy jacket with a nice feminine design. The cuffs are quite tight, meaning they won’t pull up easily, and there’s no drawcord adjustment at the hem. The collar is quite low too, and there isn’t a proper fleece lining meaning that it’s not the best jacket for really cold days. However it performs well as a windproof and breathable layer and repells water well, too.
A jacket that works best as an outer-layer in mild weather, and packs down easily in a rucksack.
