A very light jacket using Gore-Tex PacLite to keep its bulk down. But it can be a little bit sweaty after a time. Having said that, the Foray does win the award for the biggest underarm vents –they are huge, stretching from armpit to hem, with two-way zips that almost turn the jacket into a poncho! All of the external pockets have weatherproofed zips, and there is an internal security pocket too.
Fabric: Gore-Tex PacLite Shell
Women’s version: No
