Disappointingly the hood was a bit small, and could have done with a stiffer peak. Will keep your body dry, but not your face in heavy rain. Large well-placed handwarmer pockets, but the pit zips were fiddly to operate and provided very limited ventilation.

Verdict: A lightweight jacket that will keep you dry in a shower and won’t break the bank. Not suitable for very wet days, though, and a little sweaty, too.
