Mountain Hardwear Typhoon

This is a short jacket, but can still fit well. The single drawcord hood adjustment is innovative but not the most efficient. With a good rollaway hood, venting pockets and pit zips, this proved a great jacket in very bad weather. A stiffer peak and easier hood adjustment would make it even better.

A very robust lightweight waterproof with good pockets and a deep rollaway hood. Good breathability and excellent venting make it ideal for strenuous going.
