Keela Zeus Smock 2008

The Keela Zeus Smock features Rainlife 2000 waterproof, breathable fabric; smock design; huge chest pocket; pit zips; good basic rollaway hood; reflective piping. But 546g (L) is quite heavy; hip pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts; higher price would bring more waterproof and more breathable fabric.Verdict
The Keela Zeus Smock is a superb, low-priced jacket for biking, running, climbing and hiking; but more money brings even better performance.
