Rohan Momentum 2008

This soft shell jacket  weighs just 558g; very wind- and water-resistant fabric; grid construction fleece lining for insulation; longer than many jackets here; simple, conservative styling. It has quite a loose cut is that is ideal off the hill but it’s too baggy on the hill; pocket access easily obstructed by rucksack belts; material feels like it is less abrasion-resistant than others.
Verdict
Excellent for travel, but not ideal for hill-walking.
