The Odyssey is a well-featured 2-layer Gore-Tex jacket at an incredibly competitive price. It’s a decent length, and the cuffs are armed with both Velco and elastic. The handwarmer pockets are mesh-lined so offer some ventilation, and will just about take a map; and there’s a single internal pocket that’s good for a phone or similar. The hood is excellent: deep and adjustable with a good wired peak. It has an adequate external storm flap over the main zip and the collar is fleece-lined to protect the chin from the zipper. The lining is soft and feels good against bare arms and the face fabric isn’t too stiff.
Women’s version: No
