Peak Performance Lite Jacket 2009

The Peak Performance Lite Jacket weighs 424g (M); Gore-Tex Paclite; excellent waterproofness; removable wired hood has excellent movement; pit zips aid ventilation.
But condensation build-up; hip pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts; high price for performance; no reflective piping.

Verdict: The Peak Performance Lite Jacket has some good features, but better multi-activity jackets are available for less money.
