An incredibly lightweight and comfortable jacket in a really sporty design. The Azimuth has a lovely contoured fit and a high, snug collar. The sizing is quite small. Elastic cuffs pull up easily, and the lightweight fabric and articulated elbows make it very easy to move around in. However it’s probably better suited to high intensity activities like cycling or running. The Smart Skin fabric breathes very well, and mesh-lined handwarmer pockets add a welcome flow of air when needed.
