Craghoppers Kiwi Gore-Tex (2012)

This is a superb 2-layer Gore-Tex waterproof that’s casual enough to double as an everyday jacket. It’s got a decent hood with an excellent wired peak; and the collar is high and fleece-lined. The external double storm flap fastens with pop studs: fiddly but solid. The main pockets are a little on the low side, and aren’t particularly generous; and it has a deep internal pocket that’s compromised slightly by the narrow opening. The cuffs use both Velcro and elastic – a great combination, and it uses drawcords at both the waist and the hem.
