Nike ACG Minima 2009

The Nike ACG Minima multi-activity jacket weighs 440g (men’s M); Gore-Tex Paclite fabric provides good performance; hood rolls into collar very neatly; pit zips; hood fits well and moves well; two chest pockets; mesh-lined pockets add venting. But cuffs and hem tend to ride up when scrambling; pockets are a touch small for OS maps; hood peak needs a wire so it can be reshaped; hood fit and movement not so good.

Verdict: The Nike ACG Minima multi-activity jacket is good lightweight option but the hood is not ideal.
