A nicely styled jacket made from Lowe Alpine’s own Triplepoint XC fabric. The fairly roomy cut covers the hips easily and there’s a high collar to bury your face into in bad weather. It’s mesh-lined throughout, which adds weight and bulk, but improves breathability and offers some insulation too. The hood is excellent – nice and big, with a full range of adjustment and a stiff peak to keep rain off your face. Comes with five really useful external pockets, all of which are mesh-lined for venting.
Fabric: Triplepoint XC 2-layer
