Lowe Alpine Peak

A good fit, but a very short hem, and fiddly pockets, too. The hood is a useful size and fabric is soft and rustle-free. Kept nasty weather at bay, not as breathable as some, and short of venting it was hot when working hard.

A relatively inexpensive waterproof that will keep the rain out, but is better suited to less strenuous walking where the lack of venting makes less difference.
