Marmot Speedri (2013)

Made from waterproof and very breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell, the Speedri will withstand really heavy rain. There’s a bit of stretch in the fabric, which makes it great to move around in. It’s a great-looking jacket with a simple cut, waterproof zips and three decent-sized pockets. It’s let down slightly by its hood, though – it’s deep, but it doesn’t swivel when you turn your head, and the large peak can obscure vision. It’s very versatile, though – tough enough to withstand all-day rain, yet light enough to carry in your pack.
