Made from Gore-Tex Paclite, which keeps weight to a minimum, it’s totally waterproof and breathes well too. The face fabric is soft, easy to move around in and doesn’t rustle too much. The hood is a decent enough size, although the peak isn’t stiffened. It has a high collar to trap warmth and prevent water running down your neck. The zips are waterproof throughout, with decent pull-tags for easy use with gloves on. Comes with Velcro cuffs that offer a wide range of adjustment, and two really big handwarmer pockets.
Fabric: Gore-Tex Paclite
