Tog 24 Hanover 2008

The Tog 24 Hanover general-purpose jacket’s Gore-Tex fabric is extremely waterproof and very breathable; mesh lining; two hip pockets ideal as handwarmers; smaller chest pocket; front zip stormflap; removable hood, wired peak; pit zips. But 986g (men‘s L) is quite heavy; hip pocket access is easily obscured with rucksack belts; no external map-sized pockets; fabric not as breathable as higher-priced materials.Verdict: The Tog 24 Hanover jacket will keep you dry and comfy, but it lacks hill-walking features.
