Berghaus Electra (2013)

A really lightweight and high-performance jacket in Gore-Tex Active Shell. It’s got a cavernous hood that cinches down firmly over your face to keep out driving rain, and a high, snug, fleece-lined collar, which feels great against cold skin and traps warmth really well. The design is simple and fuss-free, with two deep, mesh-lined handwarmer pockets well placed for access with a pack on, and a waterproof zip. The elastic cuffs can't be adjusted, but they sit nicely on the wrists and keep out the rain. Articulated sleeves allow easy movement and it comes with a free stuff sac.
