An excellent jacket made from a soft and tough Gore-Tex Paclite fabric that certainly kept out some foul weather. The rollaway hood does a good job but isn’t as deep or as cosy as some; and the peak lacks the stiffness too. The pockets are quite low so can be obstructed by a pack belt, and they’re also quite small in comparison to some, meaning there’s no obvious place for a map. The cuffs are easily adjusted with a Velcro tab and the hem can be tightened and released with an elastic drawcord.
Women’s version: Yes
