Peter Storm HighLite

The Peter Storm HighLite general-purpose jacket weighs just 554g (women’s M); low price; waterproof and breathable StormTech fabric; two deep hip pockets; mesh lining adds comfort; hood rolls into collar. But poor pocket access while wearing a rucksack; hood has no peak for extra protection; sleeves ride up easily; high price brings more waterproof and more breathable materials.The Peter Storm HighLite is a low-priced jacket, but features are much better if you are prepared to pay more money.
