The Minim is an incredibly lightweight Gore-Tex Paclite jacket that offers no bells and whistles to save grammes and minimise the pack-down size. It has only a single chest pocket – not big enough for a map – but it does have an excellent hood, with plenty of adjustment but sadly no stiffening in the peak. It also has Velcro on the cuffs, which aids venting. The Gore-Tex fabric proved more breathable than some proprietary fabrics and kept out heavy rain too. Better for running or cycling.
Women’s version: Yes
