breathable and waterproof Triplepoint XC fabric. The fairly roomy cut covers the hips easily, and there’s a lovely high collar. It’s mesh-lined throughout, which improves breathability and offers some insulation too. The hood is ample in volume, but the peak has no stiffness and there’s not enough adjustment. The pockets are mesh-lined for venting, and are just about large enough to store a map.
Men’s version: Yes
