Cut just long enough to cover the hips, the Tiana’s body and arms have a flattering, slimline shape. It’s made from Gore-Tex Paclite fabric which is waterproof and fairly breathable, with mesh-lined pockets for a welcome flow of air. The collar is on the small side, so it doesn’t sit well over a mid-layer, and it would also benefit from some fleece under the chin to prevent chafing. Unfortunately, the smallish hood and floppy peak don’t move well with the head, and don’t protect the face in bad weather.
Men’s version: Yes
