Vaude Gorak 2008

The Vaude Gorak multi-activity jacket weighs just 428g (men’s L); very waterproof, very breathable Ceplex fabric; double stormflaps; map-sized hip pockets; pit zips; removable hood. But pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts; soft hood peak, stiff hood drawcords; you get better waterproofnes /breathability at higher prices; no reflective material.Verdict
The Vaude Gorak has a poor hood, but it can be removed, making this jacket useful for multisport if a helmet is worn.
