The sleeve and hem lengths were spot-on, as was the collar. The Polartec fabrics stretch well enough to enable effortless movement and the Velcro adjustable cuffs pull up to cool down.
Soft shell is always a compromise and the Puma is light and ultra-breathable. A versatile jacket.
Colours: Deep red/graphite, black/graphite

Verdict: One of the least insulated jackets tested, which makes it very versatile and perfect as part of a layering system. Loses a little as a dedicated outer layer.
