Karrimor Elite Alpiniste (2013)

High performance and high visibility, this is made from eVENT 3-layer fabric which is waterproof, very breathable and extremely tough. It’s got a cavernous and adjustable hood, with a stiffened, wired peak which will keep your face dry even in really heavy rain. It tightens down securely over your face, and there’s a high fleece-lined collar to bury your face into. The handwarmer pockets are a little on the pokey side, and there’s a small pocket on the sleeve – bit tricky to get at, though.
