Salomon Tracks/Tiana 2010

The Salomon Tracks/Tiana weighs 332g (size L); Gore-Tex Paclite fabric; longer body than some options; excellent movement in sleeves; two hip pockets. But hip pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts; hood is not as good as the best here; Paclite is not ideal for controlling condensation.

The Salomon Tracks/Tiana is lightweight and a reasonable price, but its features could be better.
