Rohan Mountain Guide (2012)

A heavy-duty, smart-looking jacket made from soft yet tough fabric. The fit reaches down to the upper thighs, and even the size small we tested felt rather large. It protects well against the elements, performing well on low to mid-level walks. There’s a decent-sized, pack-away hood with a wired peak, although this doesn’t offer enough protection for the side of your face. The fabric breathes well and there’s a mesh lining to help wick away sweat. The large, wide-opening handwarmer pockets are mesh- and fleece-lined, and there are two large mesh-lined internal pockets too.
