This lightweight waterproof jacket from Nike is very spacious – long in the body and arms with loose collar and cuffs and an enormous hood. It’s quite stylish though, and the soft texture of the Paclite fabric is nice. It’s heavier than most, and a little cumbersome. The hood is fiddly to adjust and much too big to perform properly. The pockets double as vents, but are small and also positioned too low for use with a rucksack.
Verdict: The Minima is more of an all-round casual waterproof than an out-and-out walking jacket, so is a little pricey for what it offers. However, the loose fit and stylish design will appeal to some.
