This lightweight waterproof jacket from Lafuma is a good fit in the body, but the hood is rather small and the collar a little tight – almost suffocating with the hood up. Good to see Velcro and elastic on the cuffs though. It keeps you dry and packs up neatly when not needed. It would benefit from some venting, and the tight fixed hood/collar means you can’t really bury your head away in really awful weather.
Verdict: The Trek is a lovely light, breathable waterproof jacket that will do everything asked of it if it fits properly. Check the hood and collar before parting with the cash though.
