Result Performance R173 Spiro Airstream 2010

The Result Performance R173 Spiro Airstream multi-activity jacket uses HydraDri waterproof and breathable fabric; large areas of reflective material; mesh lining improves comfort; hood can be removed (thankfully, as it is poor). But 870g (size L) is extremely heavy by modern standards; cut of sleeves is extremely baggy; pocket access easily obscured by rucksack belts; hood is a poor fit.

As a general outdoor jacket the Result Performance R173 Spiro Airstream would be tolerable, but it’s not a multi-activity jacket.
